Queen Elizabeth II will create a new Household for Meghan and Harry

'The Household, which will be created with the support of The Queen and The Prince of Wales, will be established in the spring.

It's only a matter of weeks before Prince Harry and Meghan Markle set up house at Frogmore, which means that they'll be a ways away from the bustle of London and Buckingham Palace.

The Duchess of Sussex has reportedly started her maternity leave.

Ms Latham joins Meghan and Harry from PR firm Freuds where she "oversaw global corporate accounts with a particular emphasis on executive thought leadership and purpose-led campaigns".

It all comes following reports that the expectant Duchess and Duke were planning to move out of their place on the grounds of Kensington Palace, where Kate Middleton, Prince William and their family reside, to Frogmore Cottage on the grounds of Windsor Castle later this month.

Mr Jones, who is now Deputy Communications Secretary to the Cambridges as well as the Duke & Duchess of Sussex, starts his new role as a result of The Queen creating a new Royal Household.

"The Duke of Sussex now has his own private office, which has been supporting The Duchess since Their Royal Highness's engagement in November 2017".

They still have to find a new Private Secretary - the most senior role in their office - to replace Samantha Cohen who will leave in the summer. Until now, the Sussexes and the Cambridges have shared a team at Kensington Palace.

The couple's Assistant Private Secretary, Amy Pickerill, is also quitting her job after the baby arrives.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have appointed Christian Jones to be their new Communications Secretary.

Kensington Palace said his new role will include "advising Their Royal Highnesses on their charitable initiatives - including work on the environment, mental health, and early childhood".

He will no longer work for Harry and Meghan.

It's a reflection of the new role Harry has in the Royal Family as a married man and a soon-to-be father. As William is set to one day take the throne and become king, it was always planned for him and Kate to have their own household, separate from Harry, who has moved down to number six in the line of succession.
