The Daily Mail has reported that Amy Pickerill, who was appointed as Meghan's assistant private secretary previous year, has handed in her notice. The aide helped Meghan with various projects, including the cookbook the Duchess published to help families affected by the Grenfell Tower disaster.

If you keep up with the Royal family at all, you know that Meghan, who is now pregnant with Prince Harry's first baby, has been the target of racism, rumors that she is "difficult" at the palace, and also that she is in a massive feud with sister-in-law, Kate Middleton!

Everything is changing at Kensington Palace. "They are very close", a source told People.

Amy first started her career at Kensington Palace as a press spokesperson and was "instrumental in helping the duchess adjust to her new life in the United Kingdom", the source shared before adding, "they have worked together for a while now and are close".

Amy had originally planned on staying until at least the end of the year, but with the baby coming it makes sense to help recruit someone now who can pick up when The Duchess returns to her official work. Meghan's personal assistant Melissa Touabti resigned just six months into the job.

Rather than a short blazer, this time Meghan plumped for a £895 cream coat by royal favourite Amanda Wakeley. The source says Pickerill simply wants to live overseas and pursue new experiences. "I don't read anything, it's much safer that way, but equally that's just my own personal preference, because I think positive or negative, it can all sort of just feel like noise to a certain extent these days", she said.

Shamima's lawyer Mohammed Akunjee said: "We have strong but as yet unconfirmed reports that Shamima Begum's son has died ". SDF spokesman Mustefa Bali confirmed the death to AFP late Friday but declined to specify how or when it happened.

The upcoming engagement on March 19 will see Kate accompany Her Majesty as she reopens Bush House - formerly the home of BBC World Service and now being leased by Kings of which the Queen is patron.

CNN contacted Twitter and Instagram for comment.

When asked about her pregnancy, Meghan replied that it was going well and that she planned to raise her child to be a feminist, whether she gives birth to a boy or girl.
