But of course we already knew that the Duchess of Sussex has a knack for taste.

When Prince Harry and Meghan visited Fiji in October, the bodyguard played an instrumental role in whisking the pregnant duchess away from a crowded market amid security concerns.

Meghan's personal assistant Melissa Touabti left her role after just six months, although the reasons for quitting are still unclear. The unnamed officer was responsible for protecting Markle, and occasionally Prince Harry, during public events like their recent tour of Australia.

A source at Scotland Yard reportedly said: 'Unlike someone who has grown up in the Royal Family and has been used to close protection from an early age, having it can be quite constraining. Royal biographer Robert Jobson claimed in his book, Charles at Seventy, that a stressed-out Harry became "short-tempered" with staff and insisted: "What Meghan wants, she gets".

'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'.
