Working for the Duchess of Sussex must be one of the most glamorous jobs, so how surprising to discover that she’s apparently struggling to hold on to key staff members.
I can disclose that Meghan’s personal assistant has quit suddenly, just six months after the American actress married into the Royal Family. ‘It’s a real shock,’ a source said. ‘Why would she want to leave such a prestigious job so soon?’
A Kensington Palace spokesman declines to comment on the departure of the PA, whose name is given only as Melissa. However, in a highly unusual move, a Palace source has been authorised to pay tribute to her.
‘Melissa is a hugely talented person,’ the source says. ‘She played a pivotal role in the success of the Royal Wedding and will be missed by everyone in the Royal Household.’
