Chief Protection Officer for the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle has resigned from her position of protecting the pregnant royal after only six months on the job.
According to Daily Mail, the decision by the Scotland Yard inspector to quit may be unconnected to how tasking it is to manage Meghan’s desire to be more close to her subjects.
Reports say it’s been challenging for the popular new royal’s bodyguards to accommodate her wish to be seen as “one of the people.”
“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. “Even though [Meghan] was famous, she could still do what she wanted in the way of getting around freely.
“But in her current role, she can’t go anywhere without her protection team, and that’s a massive constraining force on an individual like her.”
The outgoing bodyguard, was the first woman to hold such a key role in keeping the British royals safe, according to the Sunday Times UK, which first reported on her departure.
When Prince Harry and Meghan visited Fiji in October, the bodyguard played an instrumental role in whisking the former actress away from a crowded market amid security concerns.
It’s believed that the Metropolitan Police’s Royalty and Specialist Protection branch will try to find another woman to fill in for the departing inspector.
Also leaving the services of the Duchess is her personal assistant, Melissa Touabti while the royal couple’s private secretary, Samantha Cohen is also expected to leave later this year.
