Meghan Markle’s bodyguard to quit after less than a year

Meghan Markle’s bodyguard to quit after less than a year

'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 inspector, who was armed with a gun and Taser while on duty, replaced Harry's long-term head of security, Sergeant Bill Renshaw, who retired last year after 31 years with the police.

The Duchess of Sussex cradled her blossoming baby bump as she stepped out with Harry.

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 a year ago.

Meghan's bodyguard was not named in The Times for security reasons, though she accompanied Meghan throughout her tour of Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand last October.

In November, Prince Harry and Meghan's private secretary Samantha Cohen was the first royal aide to announce her resignation, after working for the royal family for 17 years.

Scotland Yard are actively looking for a replacement. According to royal biographer Andrew Morton, Meghan is very into food: "He loves cooking, exploring new foods, and experimenting with fresh flavours".


It's been claimed she's hard to work with plus her estranged dad, Thomas Markle (74), and her sister, Samantha Markle (54), regularly sound off about her in the media.

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

"It's taken a while for Meghan to get used to having the palace more involved with her life and steering her public image, but she's finally getting comfortable and trusts that they have her best interests at heart", the source said.

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

Although no official statement has yet been made by Kensington Palace, royal punters are now convinced that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are giving birth to a baby girl.
