Ari Behn continues to be among the members of the Royal Family on the website of the Royal House. Is he regarded as a formal member of the Royal Family following the divorce, or is the page out of date?
Kongefamilien - kongehuset.no
No, he is not regarded as a formal member of the Royal Family anymore.
I wrote to the royal court in the Contact information section on the Royal House website last night (after seeing your post), and they've now changed it.

They could use a rebranding.
As you probably know, Märtha still carries out some few public duties (mostly for her eight patronages and some on behalf of the King) - but she is from 2002 not a member of the Royal House.
She is not a HRH.
Her birthday is not an official flag day anymore.
She is not on the balcony on May 17th (the national day).
She is not required to perform royal duties.
She does not receive money from the state.
She has to pay taxes.
I for one actually like the Norwegian Royal House website.
