Yet Harry and Meghan's recently appointed bodyguard is to quit her role in what some see as a worrying trend. Then again, there are plenty of spare bedrooms in Anmer Hall had the Duke and Duchess of Sussex chosen to make a weekend of it.

Ms Markle had already lost her personal assistant Melissa Touabti, 39, in December and private secretary Samantha Cohen, 49, also left in November. The unnamed officer was responsible for protecting Markle, and occasionally Prince Harry, during public events like their recent tour of Australia.

"Unlike someone who has grown up in the Royal Family and has been used to having close protection from an early age, it can be constraining", a source reportedly told the outlet. "Even though [Meghan] was a famous actress, she could still do what she wanted in the way of getting around freely".

The bodyguard's name has not been identified, but insiders claimed that she is leaving the police force entirely.

E! News can confirm the 52-year-old was arrested for a DUI in the wee hours of Friday morning in OR, as first reported by TMZ.
