Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have appointed a well respected diplomat to head up their household, it has been revealed.
Fiona Mcilwham, 45, is the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s new private secretary, according to the Mail on Sunday .
Ms Mcilwham, who refers herself as a ‘wannabe supermum’ on Twitter , will replace the Queen’s former aide Samantha Cohen who is leaving the position later this year, according to reports.
The position includes co-ordinating their official programme, managing correspondence as well as supervising other staff members.
Ms Mcilwham will be joining the existing team at Buckingham Palace who are working for the royal couple.
The 45-year-old has had an impressive career so far and was one of the youngest British ambassadors when she was posted to Albania in 2009.
A royal insider revealed that Meghan and Harry were originally looking for a new joint private secretary who had experience working for the royals.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are rumoured to be ‘difficult’ to work for following a number of key staff members quitting in recent months.
Heather Wong, who served as assistant private secretary to Prince Harry, was the latest to go.
In March, it was reported that Amy Pickerill, Meghan’s ‘right-hand woman’, had quit.
Royal aide Samantha Cohen also left Kensington Palace when baby Sussex arrived after tendering her resignation at the end of last year.
PA Melissa Touabti quit her job just six months after the royal wedding a year ago.
Buckingham Palace declined to comment.
