Prince Archie's profile on the Buckingham Palace website seemingly vanished weeks after it was updated with his new royal title. The three-year-old's page was bringing up an error message reading "the requested page could not be found" when people try to click on it, which comes just weeks after the Palace updated it to reflect his official royal title as Prince Archie of Sussex, reports MailOnline.

The line of succession, which was also updated to reflect Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet's positions as sixth and seventh in line to the throne, is still a live page and the children remain in the correct place.

The web page was titled "Prince Archie of Sussex" and gave fans details about his birth, including the time, and his weight.

It explained his place in the line of succession and included a snap of him being cradled by Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.

News recently emerged that in a ceremony that took place on March 3 at the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's home in Montecito.

A spokesperson for the couple said: "I can confirm that Princess Lilibet Diana was christened on Friday, March 3 by the Archbishop of Los Angeles, the Rev John Taylor."

It marked the first time Lilibet has publicly been referred to as 'Princess', a title she received on the accession of her grandfather, , but has been at the centre of much controversy.

A royal source has since confirmed the King was notified of Harry and Meghan's intention to use the title for their children, saying: "The appropriate conversations have taken place ahead of today's news (of Lilibet's christening)."

As per the 1917 Letters Patent, "the children of any Sovereign of these Realms and the children of the sons of any such Sovereign...shall have and at all times hold and enjoy the style, title or attribute of Royal Highness with their titular dignity of Prince or Princess."

As news of one-year-old Princess Lilibet's christening broke, the Sussexes' statement referred to their children with their royal monikers for the first time.

A spokesman for the couple said at the time: "The children's titles have been a birthright since their grandfather became monarch. This matter has been settled for some time in alignment with Buckingham Palace."

After the statement was released, the Palace confirmed the titles and the line of succession would be updated "in due course" with the amendments being made the next day.

Buckingham Palace has been approached for comment.
