William & Kate appoint former Brexit strategist as their new Communications Secretary

It's only a matter of weeks before Prince Harry and Meghan Markle set up house at Frogmore, which means that they'll be a ways away from the bustle of London and Buckingham Palace.

After almost six months of speculation, it was formally announced yesterday that the Sussexes Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will have their own household separate from the Cambridges, William and Catherine.

The Sussexes and Cambridges' current communications head Jason Knauf will stay with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, but become their senior adviser.

Other possibilities (as these names feature on both Harry and Meghan's side) are Elizabeth, Mary, and John, but again, I feel everyone has a Mary and John in their family tree.

On Thursday, the palace announced Harry and Meghan have officially split royal households from Prince William and Kate Middleton. As per the announcement, Meghan and Harry will be moving their office to the Queen's residence, Buckingham Palace while Kate and William continue to work out of Kensington Palace.

"The Household, which will be created with the support of The Queen and The Prince of Wales, will be established in the spring", the statement reads, shared by royal expert Katie Nicholl. After that, she was the senior advisor on Clinton's 2016 USA presidential campaign.

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

Will be interesting to see how she relies on her years in cutthroat American politics as she collaborates with the Queen and Prince Charles's courtiers, used to doing things one way for decades.

She says: "They're not going to be in the goldfish bowl of Kensington Palace, it will be much harder to photograph them".

It will coincide with the move of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to Frogmore Cottage in Windsor before their baby arrives. Her specialty is "thought leadership and purpose-led campaigns", which could be a hint as to where Meghan and Harry want to steer their legacy.
