Palace staff ‘give Meghan new unflattering nickname’

The Duchess of Sussex appears to have upset her aides – again!

| Updated:

The Duchess of Sussex has reportedly been given a new, rather unflattering nickname by the staff at Kensington Palace.

According to a report in Tatler magazine, Meghan is known as Me-Gain after upsetting members of the wider palace team. It’s also been claimed that some of Meghan’s own staff have adopted the moniker.

It comes after three of Meghan’s close team have reportedly handed in their notice.

Earlier this month, the royal’s assistant private secretary Amy Pickerill quit. She accompanies Meghan on her official engagements but is expected to leave once Harry and Meghan exit Kensington Palace to move into Frogmore Cottage in Windsor.

A source revealed: “Amy is leaving. It’s very sad for her colleagues as she’s a popular member of staff.”

Samantha Cohen, who helped Meghan adapt in the early stages of her royal life, has worked for the royal family for the past 17 years, but she will also be leaving once Baby Sussex arrives. It’s reported she’s going to start a new life abroad.

Meghan’s personal assistant Melissa Youabti, who helped plan the royal wedding, also quit just six months after Harry and Meghan tied the knot. Sources said she found the role “too much”.

“She put up with quite a lot,” a source said at the time. “Meghan put a lot of demands on her and it ended with her in tears.”

Royal author Anna Pasternak last week said she thinks the reason the new royal isn’t getting on with her aides is because Meghan “cannot have it all”.

“I think what Meghan’s got to realise is she cannot live life in the royal family like an A-list Hollywood star,” Anna said.

She added: “Within the monarchy it requires a different set of behaviour.”
