The publication does not reveal the security guard's name, but explains that her role was an impressive feat for a female, as she "was the first woman to have held such a key role in keeping members of the Royal Family safe".

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex laughed and smiled as they arrived in Merseyside for their first joint engagement of the year.

Harry and Meghan's private secretary, Samantha Cohen is also expected to leave later this year.

There was reportedly no conflict between the security officer and Markle, but it is said to be hard to accommodate the Duchess' requests to be seen as "one of the people".

The royals have reignited the rumours though, as according to MailOnline, Meghan and Prince Harry were noticeably absent from Kate's 37th birthday lunch last Sunday.

As the pregnant Duchess of Sussex arrived for her first joint royal engagement of the year with Prince Harry in the United Kingdom on Monday she gave a masterclass in statement color dressing - and royal fashion fans felt they'd seen the combination of regal shades somewhere before.

She replaced Seargeant Bill Renshaw, Harry's long-serving head of security following his retirement after 30 years in the field.

Meghan's former bodyguard was described as "brilliant" by her colleagues, and she was highly regarded in the force. Meghan added vertiginous red high heel shoes and wore her raven hair in a tried and tested sleek bun. The couple also told the crowds they haven't found out whether they're having a boy or girl so that it will be a "surprise". Kensington Palace said it was due to "crowd management issues".

The Duchesses of Cambridge and Cornwall both also have female personal protection officers on their security teams.
