It seems clear that Buckingham Palace was genuinely trying to make some kind of nasty, racist point by excluding Lilibet Diana from the line of succession for as long as possible. For weeks after Lilibet’s birth, barely anyone mentioned the fact that the line of succession had not been updated. Then, last week, it became more of a story. The controversy began picking up steam when several outlets (including this one) pointed out that on Lilibet’s seven-week birthday, Buckingham Palace still had not updated anything. As with everything having to do with this incompetent clownshow, these dumbf–ks didn’t predict that it would become a global story and yet another example of institutional racism. After finally adding Lilibet’s name on Monday, Buckingham Palace tried to do some damage control:
“The Buckingham Palace website gets updated periodically,” the Palace said in a statement to E! News, “and that update happened today.”
According to The Sun, William and Kate Middleton’s son Louis was featured on the page 12 days after his 2018 birth, and Harry and Meghan’s son Archie was featured on the page 15 days after his 2019 birth. The outlet also reported that Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s son August was added to the online list 61 days after his February birth and that Zara and Michael Tindall’s son Lucas has been included on the page since his March birth.

So, with the exception of August Brooksbank, all recent babies have been added to the line within about two weeks. Are we to believe that Buckingham Palace employees are so lazy and incompetent that they only get around to updating the line two months later, and only now, this year? Doesn’t wash. Also, while they were doing updates, they forgot to change Meghan’s DoS profile on the site. They say on the official royal-government site, that Meghan and Harry “have one child.” On Prince Harry’s section on the Royal Family’s site, his two children are not even mentioned. Imagine having this kind of hatred for two innocent babies.
