Wait, WHAT?

Meghan Markle, now Duchess of Sussex, is undoubtedly one of the most talked about people in the world, something that has both its advantages and disadvantages.

Sure, she has the power to turn independent brands into world-renowned labels by just wearing their clothes (the Meghan Markle effect), and she gets to live in a castle and travel the globe meeting world leaders.

But she also makes viral news for anything involving her life, with the whole world talking about her this week for the wrong reasons.

That’s right. It wasn’t her future baby or her feminist speeches that got the world talking this weekend. Instead, it was the departure of her personal assistant, who reportedly quit unexpectedly.

According to the Daily Mail, ‘Melissa’ quit only six months after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding - an event she reportedly played a ‘pivotal role’ in, and something that apparently came to the royal family as ‘a real shock'.

There is no word yet as to why Meghan’s personal assistant reportedly quit and Kensington Palace has reportedly declined to respond.

Does that mean Meghan Markle is now officially hiring? If that's the case, when can we apply?
