Unlike Meghan's former personal assistant, who bailed on her job after only six months, Samantha's tenure has been considerably longer. She's worked with the Royal Family for 17 years now, and was formerly one of Queen Elizabeth's most trusted aides as assistant private secretary and communications secretary.

The soon-to-be mother was keen on keeping Samantha permanently after she joined the Sussex household on an interim basis, however the latter was reportedly not so enthused about doing that. “Sam will be a huge loss,” claimed a source who knows The Duchess. “Going forward, Meghan might need someone cut from a slightly different cloth to traditional courtiers, who is not a career civil servant or royal insider."
