Duchess of Sussex's female bodyguard leaves after less than a year

Postado Janeiro 14, 2019

The police officer, who has never been named for security reasons, was pictured leaping into action when Meghan abruptly left a market in Fiji during the royal tour of Australia and the Pacific last October.

Meghan Markle has made history and sparked unprecedented change in the royal world since marrying Prince Harry last May, so it should come as no surprise that the Duchess of Sussex wanted to mix things up in Prince Harry's life as well.

The Duchess of Sussex's female bodyguard has quit after a stint in the role for less than a year.

The bodyguard was rumoured to be helping Harry and Meghan with security plans for Frogmore Cottage, which they plan to move into before their baby is born in the spring.

She replaced Seargeant Bill Renshaw, Harry's long-serving head of security following his retirement after 30 years in the field.

In December, Meghan's personal assistant Melissa Touabti also announced she was quitting after just six months.

"Unlike someone who has grown up in the Royal Family and has been used to having close protection from an early age, it can be constraining" for Meghan, a source said.

The duke and duchess's private secretary, Samantha Cohen, is also set to leave as planned later this year.

While Kensington Palace declined to comment on the assistant's departure, a spokesperson reportedly described her as a "hugely talented person" who "played a pivotal royal in the success of the royal wedding". Royal biographer Robert Jobson claimed in his book, Charles at Seventy, that a stressed-out Harry became "short-tempered" with staff and insisted: "What Meghan wants, she gets".
