Meghan Markle's private secretary revealed

By Sharnaz Shahid

Meghan Markle has someone with tons of experience helping her ease into royal life. In preparation for Meghan becoming a full-time royal, Prince Harry has enlisted Amy Pickerill, the Senior Communications Officer for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge as well as Harry himself, to be the former Suits actress' first private secretary. The groom-to-be reportedly handpicked Amy for his private office so that she could help Meghan with her upcoming engagements.

Amy, a University of Nottingham graduate, used to work for Royal Bank of Scotland and the HM Treasury. She became a member of the Kensington Palace press team in 2016, but will now work solely for Harry and Meghan. According to Daily Mail, Amy's job will include everything from organizing Meghan's schedule to collecting flowers and gifts on engagements. Her initial move to Harry’s personal team was "long planned." Amy was pictured collecting flowers for the royal couple in Cardiff on Thursday afternoon. This was Harry and Meghan's third official joint engagement together.
