Harry and Meghan to get own royal household in split from Cambridges

Share

After almost six months of speculation, it was formally announced yesterday that the Sussexes Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will have their own household separate from the Cambridges, William and Catherine.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are all set to have their own "Household", and will no longer share royal personnel with Prince William and Kate.

Wednesday's statement from Buckingham Palace read in part, "The Duke of Sussex now has his own private office, which has been supporting the Duchess since the engagement of Their Royal Highnesses in November 2017..."

George Clooney sang praises about his close friends, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, after attending a charity gala hosted by Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday.

The Duke of Sussex now has his own private office, which has been supporting The Duchess since the engagement of Their Royal Highnesses in November 2017.

Last year, officials announced that Harry and Markle were moving from Kensington Palace in central London to Frogmore Cottage, a house on the grounds of Windsor Estate, ahead of the birth of their first child in early 2019.

Kensington Palace will continue to support Meghan and Harry until that team is in place. Their Royal Highnesses will appoint new communications staff, who will form part of the Buckingham Palace communications team and report to the Queen's Communications Secretary, Donal McCabe.

Kate, 37, and Meghan's happy meeting could finally end rumours of an apparent rift, which has plagued the Royals for months.

Harry and Meghan have also turned down the mansion, saying they see their new Windsor residence, Frogmore Cottage, as their "forever home".

A source said: 'It's about placing the two dukes on a permanent footing that ensures changes aren't needed again [when Charles accedes to the throne and William becomes Prince of Wales]'.

According to online betting agency Betway, Diana is the favoured name for Meghan and Harry's firstborn child at 6/1, reports the Daily Express.

The separation of the households only confirms that as well.

The pair seemed pleased to see each other and warmly embraced after they exchanged a cheerful greeting, Judi James claimed.

Sara Latham, an American who is now managing partner at Freuds PR agency, was named as the duke's new communications chief.
