Meghan Markle and Prince Harry 'did not attend' Kate Middleton's birthday lunch

The bodyguard's name wasn't identified, yet insiders claimed that she is leaving the police force entirely.

The female police officer has never been named for security reasons, but she was the bodyguard who was photographed leaping into action during a security scare in Fiji during the couple's royal tour previous year.

She replaced Seargeant Bill Renshaw, Harry's long-serving head of security following his retirement after 30 years in the field. The news comes after the departure of Meghan's personal assistant, Melissa, late past year.

While her private secretary, Samantha Cohen, is also expected to leave later this year after 17 years of working for the British Royals. It's a real shame as she was a great addition to the team and hugely liked.

She has been spotted beside Meghan and Prince Harry's sides regularly but now The Sunday Times newspaper is reporting that she is going to stop protecting them. According to royal biographer Andrew Morton, Meghan is very into food: "He loves cooking, exploring new foods, and experimenting with fresh flavours".

Royal commentators say that Kate Middleton celebrated her birthday without sister-in-law Meghan Markle.

According to The Sun, a Scotland Yard (police service responsible for policing most of London) source said: "Unlike someone who has grown up in the Royal Family and has been used to close protection from an early age, having it can be quite constraining".

There are even rumours that the Duchess of Sussex and her sister-in- law, Kate (37), don't get along at all.

In October, she was with the couple on a Pacific tour when she helped rush the duchess out of a solo visit to a market in Fiji, cutting it short because of the crowds and sweltering conditions.

The Duchesses of Cambridge and Cornwall both also have female personal protection officers on their security teams.

Kensington Palace announced last week they will "meet a number of local organisations that support and empower groups within the community".
