Things aren’t looking so good for Meghan Markle behind closed doors at Kensington Palace. There are new reports that tease that the Duchess of Sussex is set to lose another royal aide after her baby is born. Meghan and Prince Harry are currently expecting their first child together. Here’s what you need to know.
According to reports, Meghan’s private secretary and right hand woman, Amy Pickerill, has put in her notice. She plans on leaving shortly after Meghan Markle gives birth, sometime in late April.
Thankfully, Amy is leaving on good terms. In other words, there’s no drama, no feud, and no messy business going on at Meghan’s office. Amy is resigning simply because she plans on moving abroad to start a new chapter in her life.
Amy And Meghan Are Still Close And Amy Will Remain An Adviser
“They will stay in touch and Amy will remain as a personal adviser to her in the longer term. They are very close,” a source told People Magazine. “It is very amicable.”
Unfortunately for Meghan though, this is the fourth staffer that has quit or put in their notice ever since the Duchess joined the royal family in May of last year. There have been some grumbles that royal staff aides aren’t used to Meghan’s American work ethic. The Duchess often likes to wake up at the crack of dawn and text message her aides with new ideas or plans for the day.
Meghan Is Mum About The Departure Of Her Private Secretary
So far Meghan Markle herself hasn’t made any comments about Amy Pickerill leaving. But seeing how she is still on the job for the next several weeks, we have a feeling that she will help Meghan’s next private secretary transition into his or her new role smoothly.
