Meghan, Duchess of Sussex 'is planning a second baby shower'

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex 'is planning a second baby shower'

They'll get their own communications team, which will report directly to the Queen's communications director, and all this in order to prep for Prince William one day being king.

Meghan Markle is reportedly going to have a second baby shower with close family and friends.

"They wanted their household to be entirely independent of Buckingham Palace, but were told "no"". Meghan Markle is expected to give birth in April and we have to say that for better or worse she is the Duchess of Sussex and the public will just have to accept that.

The Cambridges and Sussexes are splitting their royal court into two separate offices.

Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle are itching to set up a global "philanthropy brand" without the pesky oversight of the royal family - but the Queen and Prince Charles have put the kibosh on their plans. Prince Harry and Meghan will be eventually making Frogmore Cottage their official residence.

As part of the dramatic shake-up, Harry and Meghan have named high-flying PR guru Sara Latham - who has worked for Bill and Hillary Clinton - as their new dedicated head of communications.

Instead, Queen Elizabeth has reportedly encouraged Kate to reach out to Meghan, who is pregnant with her first child.

The Duchess initially planned to stage the event at Frogmore Cottage at Windsor, where she and the Duke are poised to raise their firstborn child.

She has an established reputation in American politics having previously worked for former U.S. president Bill Clinton and was previously described by USA Today as a "longtime Democratic fixer".

The statement read: "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".

The news comes after it was revealed the couple would be waving goodbye to Prince William and Kate Middleton, to have their own staff and focus on their own projects.
