On the 20th anniversary the September 11 terror attacks that happened on U.S. soil, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made a temporary change to the Archewell website, according to the Daily Mail. If you visited the domain on September 11, 2021, you would have been taken to a black screen that featured the names of those who lost their lives on 9/11, written in white.
The top of the screen read “In Memoriam” and contained the date, written as “September 11, 2001,” centered underneath. The links and menus were removed from the website’s homepage. The couple did not release any other kind of statement, but allowed the Archewell tribute to speak for itself.
Although Harry and Meghan hadn’t previously posted about 9/11 on their now defunct Instagram account, Sussex Royal, they have both remembered the somber day in various ways in the past. In 2019, for example, Harry was the “guest of honor” at the BGC Charity Day at Canary Wharf in London, according to People magazine.
The Duke of Sussex was on hand to answer phones on the trading floor, in an effort to raise money for charity. The event is held every year on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, and especially honors the 658 Cantor Fitzgerald and the 61 EuroBrokers employees who lost their lives on that tragic day, according to People.
