Female bodyguard latest to quit Meghan Markle's entourage

Meghan Markle's bodyguard quits after six months working for pregnant Duchess of Sussex

Meghan Markle's bodyguard quits after less than a year on the job

If there's one thing that Meghan Markle has become known for in her time as a royal, it's her penchant for dark colours.

The senior personal protection officer, who is not being named for security reasons, had been a prominent part of the couple's security service as the only woman accompanying them on public engagements.

But she has now quit after being in the job for only about six months, according to The Sunday Times.

The 37-year-old pregnant Duchess of Sussex looked stunning on Monday, stepping out in a regal purple dress from Babaton by Aritizia and keeping warm with a cherry red peacoat by Sentaler.

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.

The bodyguard was rumoured to be helping Harry and Meghan with security plans for Frogmore Cottage, which they plan to move into before their baby is born in the spring.

They then come upon memorial statues of themselves as the crypt begins to turn icy cold, presumably as the Night King nears. Just six episodes of the show remain, although it's expected that many of them will run for longer than hour.

"Unlike someone who has grown up in the Royal Family and has been used to having close protection from an early age, it can be constraining", says a source.

The duke and duchess's private secretary, Samantha Cohen, is also set to leave as planned later this year. "Even though [Meghan] was a famous actress, she could still do what she wanted in the way of getting around freely".

Her decision to quit follows the departure of the duchess's personal assistant, Melissa Touabti, who left the palace a year ago after six months in the job.

She went to work for Meghan on a temporary basis before her wedding.

According to The Sun, the female protection officer is the third close aide to stop working for Meghan in a little over two months.
