CELEBRITY Meghan Markle
No official word has been released as to the motives of the shocking departure, however, speculation is rife given the prestigious nature of the role. Perhaps it was all the stress of Meghan's extended family that led to her hasty retreat? The Duchess of Sussex's family has caused no end of drama after all. Other outlets are speculating that, perhaps, the recently minted royal is difficult to work for? Scandalous!
Melissa was one of Meghan's closest aides and is bound to be missed at Kensington Palace, where a host of staff members work together to help the royal couple in their duties. The personal assistant's role is pivotal in assisting with their schedules, coordinating diaries, organising travel arrangements, and managing correspondences.
The former PA was reportedly highly instrumental in the organisation of Meghan and Harry's royal wedding in May, and was a very well-respected member of the team.
A Kensington Palace source, in a highly unusual move, was authorised to pay tribute to her via The Daily Mail: "Melissa is a hugely talented person. She played a pivotal role in the success of the Royal Wedding and will be missed by everyone in the Royal Household."
We wonder how long the next PA will last...
