I thought my eyes were playing tricks with me but it looks like Rivian has changed which side the charge port will be on.

On Rivian's website this image of the R1T can be seen with the port door open on the Driver side with a charging cable.



But in previous articles on the Rivian, it was described as having the charge port on the other side.
As for the vehicle’s charge port, it is equipped with a regular CCS plug hidden in the front passenger side:
Here's a GIF of someone opening up the charge port that's clearly on the passenger side.



I wonder if this means that the R1T will have charge ports on both sides? If not, I wonder what the reason was for Rivian to make the change. Does anyone have any guesses?

As a world market vehicle, Rivian need ports on both sides. Look at what Porsche is doing.
That definitely makes sense for them to do that. You'd think Rivian would mention that at some of the events they've been too already.
