    As reported by Times Of London, a source close to the couple said, “The reality behind the new site is very simple — it’s a hub for the work the Sussexes do and it reflects the fact the family have, since the king’s coronation, the same surname for the first time,” the source said, adding, “That’s a big deal for any family. It represents their unification and it’s a proud moment.”

    An insider also revealed that since Archie’s name is used for most of the couple’s business brands, they wanted to be inclusive towards Lilibet by using her surname Sussex for the website.

    As for the hate that the website is getting, Meghan came to the designers’ defense and said, “There is a reason I have worked with Ryan and the talented team at Article for a decade: their attention to detail, their creativity and care, and the thoughtful approach to design as well as to the user experience.”

    She added, “They’re not just designers; they are collaborators who elevate your ideas into visual identities. They’re a very special company. Plus they’re Canadian, so I’m a fan.”
