William and Harry split royal households as Sussexes hire ex-Clinton advisor

Meghan Markle And Prince Harry Are Officially Breaking Off And Forming Their Own Royal Household featured image

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have split their household from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Britain's Prince Harry and his pregnant wife Meghan are to set up their own household, breaking away from the joint operation they shared with the Harry's elder brother William and his wife Kate, Buckingham Palace said on Thursday.

The Duchess may also be hard at work on her family's move to their new home, Frogmore Cottage.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are officially splitting from Prince William and Kate Middleton to create their own royal household this spring.

While Meghan and Harry will be moving to Frogmore Cottage in Windsor later this spring, their office will also be moving - out of Kensington Palace and into Buckingham Palace.

The long-standing Communications Secretary, Jason Knauf, will become a "special adviser" to William and Kate.

Reports of the royal households splitting began circulating late past year, with commentators explaining that Meghan's entrance into the Royal Family had changed the young royals' working dynamic.

Some might interpret this news as evidence of the oft-rumoured "rift" between the young royals, but as the palace statement explains, it's simply business.

He added: "The things we have seen about Meghan Markle where she took that private jet to fly to a baby shower in NY at great expense while she is preaching about climate change and so on".

"Well, we'll see less of the Fab Four together", she stated.

On Wednesday, Meghan held a previously unannounced meeting at Kensington Palace with the Royal National Theatre's artistic director Rufus Norris and executive director Lisa Burger.

They could still work together on big projects like their Heads Together mental health campaign. "But I think we are increasingly going to see the Sussexes do their thing and the Cambridges doing their thing".

Their new communications staff will be part of the Buckingham Palace communications team, reporting to the Queen's Communications Secretary Donal McCade. "They have a very clear idea of what they want to do and the instructions from the top and, of course, that comes from Prince William at Kensington Palace, they don't want others treading".
