Meghan Markle Gets Royal Aide Ahead of Wedding to Prince Harry
By Leena Tailor
You’re not a royal until you have a royal aide!
With exactly three months to go until she ties the knot with Prince Harry, Meghan Markle has been appointed a secretary to handle her increasingly busy royal schedule and duties.
Amy Pickerill, a former Kensington Palace press officer, was announced on Monday as the new assistant private secretary in the office of Prince Harry. As well as coordinating the 36-year-old Suits star’s diary, she will also take care of any correspondence Markle receives.
Markle has already carried out four public outings with the 33-year-old prince, and Pickerill was photographed by her side at the most recent event, in Edinburgh, Scotland.
The appointment comes as new details continue to emerge about the highly-anticipated May 19 nuptials at St. George’s Chapel. The ceremony will officially kick off at 7 a.m. ET / 4 a.m. PT, and be followed by a carriage procession.
After their ride Harry and Markle will attend a reception for the congregation guests at St. George’s Hall, followed by a private evening reception held by Prince Charles for their close friends and family.
