HTTPS: why are relative references not loaded using HTTPS?

For an example of what I'm talking about, check here:

https://www.jamessuckling.com/index.php?section=users&subsection=register®_type=premium

As you can see, the above URL is accessed via HTTPS - BUT it is showing as insecure in Chrome

There are links to the style sheets etc. which are all relatively referenced, but these are showing up as insecure content in the Chrome console?

Why is that?
