This unnamed female police officer was the third close security aid to quit working for the Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle over two months! This news came in time before the new step the royal couple will be making which is moving into Frogmore Cottage in the grounds of Windsor Castle, preparing for the birth of their first child. The bodyguard, who is thought to hold the rank of inspector, had replaced Sgt Bill Renshaw, Harry’s long-standing head of security, who retired after more than 30 years in the force. However, this new officer left her job after only 6 months of duty. A Scotland yard announced: “Unlike someone who has grown up in the Royal Family and has been used to close protection from an early age, having it can be quite constraining. Even though she was a famous actress, she could still do what she wanted in the way of getting around freely.” He added “But in her current role she can’t go anywhere without her protection team and that’s a massive constraining force on an individual like her.”
