The Duke and Duchess of Sussex launched their new Sussex Royal website detailing their plans to carve out “progressive new roles” within the royal family as they announced they had made the decision to step back from royal duties on Wednesday. The slick site features images from some of their former royal tours and engagements, with further information about their plans for the future.

However, one detail about the site has been spotted by eagle-eyed fans; it was made by Article, a website development company based in Toronto, Canada, who previously created Meghan’s lifestyle blog, The Tig.

Meghan closed her website and Instagram accounts when she became engaged to Prince Harry in November 2017, but it appears she wanted to go back to a team she knows and trusts when launching her new venture with her husband. The royal couple would have had plenty of opportunity to work on their website during their recent six-week break from official duties, much of which was spent in Canada with their son Archie Harrison.
