It was announced last year that Samantha, who has worked for the royal household for 17 years, was leaving, one in a series of departures around Meghan, but according to one source, her role with Harry and Meghan was never a permanent one.

‘Sam was always going to be an interim private secretary until the Duke and Duchess found a permanent one,’ a source reportedly told Vanity Fair.

‘Samantha the Panther’ as she is known by in royal circles has reportedly agreed to stay on with the couple until after the royal baby’s birth - something they are said to be thrilled about.

‘Sam gets on well with Meghan and Harry,’ the source continued. ‘She has agreed to stay on and help them until after they have had the baby and found a full time replacement private secretary so that the hand over will be completely seamless.’

Thank goodness!
