There goes another one: Meghan Markle's female bodyguard quits

There goes another one: Meghan Markle's female bodyguard quits

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have arrived in Birkenhead for a whistle-stop tour of the Merseyside town to meet local residents and visit community groups as part of their first official engagement of the year.

It is being reported that Meghan Markle's bodyguard has left the position after just six months with the former "Suits" actress.

She replaced Seargeant Bill Renshaw, Harry's long-serving head of security following his retirement after 30 years in the field.

Meghan's chief protection officer has never been named publicly, but she was pictured with Meghan in December.

Her name is unknown, being kept secret for protection, yet she's identifiable by photos captured in Fiji when urgency meant she had to take action.

"Just as Meghan encouraged a helping of culinary adventure, so she dramatically changed the contents of Prince Harry's fridge", Morton told the outlet.

She follows personal assistant Melissa Touabti, who departed Kensington Palace a year ago after six months in the role, and Harry and Meghan's private secretary Samantha Cohen.

'Even though she was a famous actress, she could still do what she wanted in the way of getting around freely.

She has been spotted beside Meghan and Prince Harry's sides regularly but now The Sunday Times newspaper is reporting that she is going to stop protecting them.

Following the announcement that Meghan Markle has received four royal patronages from the Queen, Kate Middleton and Prince William had a secret engagement.

"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".

It was in October when Kensington Palace announced that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were expecting their first child.
