After almost six months of speculation, it was formally announced yesterday that the Sussexes Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will have their own household separate from the Cambridges, William and Catherine.
The new Household is likely to be created following the birth of the couple's first child, expected in April.
George and his wife Amal Clooney attended Meghan and Harry's wedding in May a year ago and are said to be very close to the couple.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, in particular, keep Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis out of the public eye and we only see them at some annual events, such as Trooping the Colour or through official photographs.
"The Queen has given permission for The Duke and Duchess of Sussex to base their Household Office at Buckingham Palace", it continues.
The news has nothing to do with a reported rift between the two families.
Harry and Meghan's office and staff will move to Buckingham Palace in the coming months.
They may not be the royal Fab Four of Kensington Palace anymore, but at least we'll always have the memories. The palace statement read, "This long-planned move will ensure that permanent support arrangements for The Duke and Duchess's work are in place as they start their family and move to their official residence at Frogmore Cottage".
Latham will be directly reporting to the Queen's communications secretary.
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 U.S. presidential campaign. Her specialty is "thought leadership and purpose-led campaigns", which could be a hint as to where Meghan and Harry want to steer their legacy.
