REUTERS/Peter Nicholls Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex arrive for a reception hosted by the British Ambassador to Morocco at the British Residence during the second day of their tour of Morocco on February 24, 2019 in Rabat, Morocco.

Meghan and Harry's staff will now work out of Buckingham Palace, and they have cut all ties with Kensington Palace, where William and Kate are based.

The royal family has intervened to keep Kate's design from the glare of her in-laws' glamour, ordering the charity to keep Harry's photo out of their publicity materials for the event.


Harry and Meghan's official household office at Buckingham Palace, and will have a separate communications team to reflect this move. Prince Harry and Meghan will be eventually making Frogmore Cottage their official residence.

The Queen has agreed to the creation of a household for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and given permission for it to be based at Buckingham Palace, where the couple may also have their own apartment - meaning the couple's court stops short of the "total royal freedom" they reportedly envisaged.

There have also been some staff changes to reflect the splitting of the households, for example Meghan and Harry's communications will be taken charge of by Sara Latham, who was a senior advisor on Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign.


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

Buckingham Palace announced the development in a statement, saying: 'The Queen has agreed to the creation of a new Household for The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, following their marriage in May previous year. In addition to her work as a Clinton campaign adviser, she was chief of staff to John Podesta, who was chair of her 2016 USA presidential campaign.

Last year, it was widely reported that there was a "feud" between Meghan and her sister-in-law Kate Middleton, but now it's believed the tension may be with William and Harry. "Kensington Palace will continue to support Their Royal Highnesses until that team is in place".
