No, that isn’t Duchess Meghan waving bye to the latest royal staffer to say “Dueces!” but it should be! In the race between the White House and Kensington Palace as to who can see more staffers quit in a given year, KP leaps ahead for 2019!
Royal staffers have handed in their “bye bitch” letters ever since Meghan became a 5am NIGHTMARE by firing off emails at the break of dawn. Meghan’s assistant already quit since I imagine the dark nail polish and one-off bare shoulder became too much for a poor soul to endure. This time around, it’s her and Prince Harry’s bodyguard who is quitting, but they swear it has nothing to do with Meg. Ah, well, Meghan seems to be trying to deflect today by casually letting slip to a peasant when she’s expecting to give birth.
The Telegraph says the royal family is again up in arms because Meghan’s bodyguard is leaving the Metropolitan Police, which means they’re going to have to put up a “Protect Duchess Basic Cable” ad on LinkedIn. When I first read this story, I sang I Will Always Love You and also thought about the hot Scot in Bodyguard. Alas, Meg’s situation was a little different. The bodyguard who quit is a woman, as are several members of her protection squad. The unnamed bodyguard went with Meghan and Harry on their South Pacific trip last year and garnered press attention because – THE HORROR – she wore heels on the job and – AS ONE WOULD HOPE – blended in with the rest of the royal entourage. She only started protected Meghan and Harry and was overseeing the security outfitting of their new home in Windsor. She is said to be leaving the police for reasons unrelated to Meghan and Harry, but, I mean, let’s take a look at the receipts.
Samantha Cohen, who already worked for THE QUEEN and is now serving as secretary for the duchess and Harry, is leaving sometime later this year. Melissa Touabti was Meghan’s personal assistant and only lasted six months.
Meghan is no fool, and People is reporting she deployed a little diversion tactic today. Carla Gandy said she was in the British town of Birkenhead today and spoke to Meghan, who said she’s six months along with her baby. She then told other onlookers that she was expecting her baby in late April. Someone else asked Meghan how she was handling her pregnancy, and she replied, “One staff firing at a time!” Oh, I read that wrong. It was “one day at a time.” My bad!

(And note from Michael: You can also join me in throwing jealous glares at the lucky little ginger girl who got a hug from Prince Hot Ginge today. I really need to either adopt a little ginger girl so this can happen to me, or invest in a “Ginger Unites” sign and a little girl ginger wig.)
Prince Harry gave four year old Eliza Morris a hug after seeing her sign ‘Gingers Unite – I love you Harry’ on a walkabout today.
He said “I love this! Do you love your hair, the sign is amazing!”
