The Sussexes get their own court as William and Harry split

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have hired Hillary Clinton's former presidential campaign senior adviser to head their communications team

Meghan Markle is only a few weeks away from having her first child with Prince Harry.

Markle was last seen with Harry, Kate Middleton, Prince William, and Prince Charles at the Commonwealth Day celebrations at Westminster Abbey in London on Monday. But the Duke and Duchess of Sussex may decide to go rogue when it comes to naming their firstborn, and where better to get inspiration from than their own family trees?

The Clooneys are verifiable besties with Harry and Meghan and the rest of the royal family at this point.

The new Sussex household will be based at Buckingham Palace - alongside the Queen.

It will coincide with the move of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to Frogmore Cottage in Windsor before their baby arrives.

The statement confirmed the changes will be in place this spring - around the same time the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will move into their new home, Frogmore Cottage, in Windsor - 23 miles from Kensington Palace.

However, sources with knowledge insist that this latest move has nothing to do with the reported rift and was always part of the long-term plan.

"The Duke of Sussex now has his own private office, which has been supporting the Duchess since the engagement of Their Royal Highnesses in November 2017", the Palace said in a statement (via Reuters).

The biggest name to join this power squad is Sara Latham, who has ties to both Hillary Clinton and Barak Obama.

They still have to find a new Private Secretary - the most senior role in their office - to replace Samantha Cohen who will leave in the summer.

The change comes as former U.S. actress Meghan is due to give birth to her first child with the queen's grandson this Spring.

Sara Latham worked for both Bill Clinton in the White House in the late 1990s and she was an adviser on Hilary Clinton's failed 2016 USA presidential campaign. Apparently, the former American Idol star knows the Duchess well as they spent their youth together performing in musicals.

The father of two also spoke up the Suits alum as "a really kind and smart and intelligent young woman", and said she and husband Prince Harry are a "really wonderful, loving couple".
