Meghan Markle’s bodyguard to quit after less than a year

The Duchess of Sussex has lost another staffer - an officer hired six months ago by Scotland Yard to protect her.

Pregnant Meghan, who is expecting her first child with Harry this spring, is continuing to keep a busy schedule packed with royal engagements.

Meghan's bodyguard, who is thought to hold the rank of inspector, had replaced Sgt Bill Renshaw, Harry's long-standing head of security.

However, it was reported that the desire of the American former actress to be seen as "one of the people" has presented challenges to her protection team.

Her personal assistant, Melissa Touabti, left Kensington Palace past year after just six months.

The bodyguard's name wasn't identified, yet insiders claimed that she is leaving the police force entirely.

The royals have reignited the rumours though, as according to MailOnline, Meghan and Prince Harry were noticeably absent from Kate's 37th birthday lunch last Sunday.

She had been in an overcrowded market which was deemed a safety threat.

"But in her current role she can't go anywhere without her protection team and that's a massive constraining force on an individual like her".

Kensington Palace did not immediately return Fox News' request for comment on the staffing changes.
