Meghan Markle Gets Ready for Maternity Leave With Last Engagement

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have hired Hillary Clinton's former presidential campaign senior adviser to head their communications team

The new Sussex household will be based at Buckingham Palace - alongside the Queen.

Princes Harry and William remain joint patrons, with their wives, of the Royal Foundation, the primary charitable body for the Cambridges and Sussexes.

People reports the separation of the households-to be established in the northern hemisphere spring-has been approved by both Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles.

In a statement, the Palace said the changes for the Sussexes "will ensure that permanent support arrangements for The Duke and Duchess' work are in place as they start their family and move to their official residence at Frogmore Cottage". The Queen has already given permission for the new office to be based at Buckingham Palace.

However, sources with knowledge insist that this latest move has nothing to do with the reported rift and was always part of the long-term plan.

Meghan has been busy with her final few royal events over the last few weeks.

She will report directly to the Queen's communications secretary.

It was known that the Prince Harry and his recent bride Meghan would be leaving their two-bedroom cottage at Kensington Palace to move to Frogmore Cottage in Windsor Castle ahead of the baby´s arrival this spring, but it has now been revealed that the couple are moving their offices too.

"According to a palace source, Kate Middleton's unusual public gesture was deliberate - she hoped the warm embrace would be captured by the world's media and finally put an end to the rumors of an ongoing feud", an anonymous palace source told the publication. "That is not to say we're not going to see William, Kate, Meghan and Harry doing engagements together".

"She said, 'We are excited. They have a very clear idea of what they want to do and the instructions from the top and, of course, that comes from Prince William at Kensington Palace, they don't want others treading".

The long-standing Communications Secretary, Jason Knauf, will become a "special adviser" to William and Kate.

Sara Latham, who previously served on Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign team, will lead communications for Meghan and Harry, while Christian Jones is now communications secretary to William and Kate.
