Three Royal family staff have reportedly left since Meghan Markle married Prince Harry

Say what?

Between travelling around the world, helping out on various humanitarian projects, and taking care of the upcoming royal baby, you'd think that working for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would be something of a dream.

Apparently this isn't the case for some now-former Royal aides.

According to The Daily Mail, Harry and Meghan have reportedly lost three important staff members in the last six months, which happens to coincide with how long the couple have been married.

Hmmmm, coincidence?

The publication reports that Meghan's personal assistant, Melissa, has handed in her notice after just a few months in the role and will soon join the couple's private secretary Samantha Cohen in leaving the Kensington Palace doors.

Samantha herself was only appointed into the role back in April this year when her predecessor Edward Lane Fox stepped down. She also recently announced her resignation, which comes after 17 years of working with the Royal family.

With the departures of Melissa, Samantha, and Edward, that means three important staff members have left Harry and Meghan's entourage in the span of only half a year.

As for why this exodus of Royal aides is happening, The Daily Mail reports the staff departures could be the result of what was apparently a stressful build-up to Harry and Meghan's wedding and all the changes that's happened in the aftermath.

Biographer Robert Jobson says (via Woman's Day) that preparations for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's wedding was very "stressful", resulting in Harry getting "short-tempered" with staff and an argument between Meghan and Queen Elizabeth over the bride-to-be's tiara of choice.

We may never know what exactly is going on with the staff at Kensington Palace but perhaps you should consider tidying up that CV and renewing your passport because it sounds like there's a few openings available there.
