The couple split ties with the charity, which is now fronted solely by Prince William and Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge. And now they have headhunted the charity’s director Natalie Campbell. It comes as Meghan and Harry launch their brand ’Sussex Royal’.
She will join Sara Latham, another director of the charity and renowned PR agent.
The charity’s full name, according to The Sun, is Sussex Royal The Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
One royal source claimed: “Natalie is great and was already leading on much of the Sussexes’ work so it was a natural progression.
“It’s part of the transition and how the Royal Foundation is helping the Sussexes set up their own thing.”

They added: “The new name is all about Harry and Meghan building their brand and doing it their way.
“But the name is a little surprising as we were expecting something a bit more traditional.”
The latest intervention comes at a time when claims of rows between the Cambridges and the Sussexes continue to swirl.
In May, it was announced that Meghan and Harry were splitting up the ‘Fab Four’ – which included William and Kate at the foundation.
