Meghan Markle's bodyguard becomes 'third close aide to quit in two months'

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

It has been challenging for the popular new royal's bodyguards to accommodate her wish to be seen as "one of the people", sources told The Daily Mail on Sunday - as it was reported that her chief protection officer is leaving her position after only about six months on the job.

Meghan Markle has made history and sparked unprecedented change in the royal world since marrying Prince Harry last May, so it should come as no surprise that the Duchess of Sussex wanted to mix things up in Prince Harry's life as well.

Meghan's bodyguard was not named in The Times for security reasons, though she accompanied Meghan throughout her tour of Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand last October.

The bodyguard, who is thought to hold the rank of inspector, had replaced Sgt Bill Renshaw, Harry's long-standing head of security, who retired after more than 30 years in the force.

Following the birth of their firstborn child, Meghan and Harry will move to Frogmore Cottage at Windsor Castle which is now being refurbished.

But she has now quit after being in the job for only about six months, according to The Sunday Times. Both Camilla and Kate have female protection officers on their staff, and Meghan, a champion of women, will likely have another female protection officer as well.

"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", the source added.

During Meghan's recent engagement at women's charity Smart Works, which she has become a patron of, eagle-eyed fans spotted her belly button had become more prominent- something which often happens in the later stages of pregnancy.

Cohen had spent 17 years working for the royal family and was previously the Queen's assistant private secretary and Press spokesperson.
