Meghan Markle possibly starting maternity leave

Meghan Markle possibly starting maternity leave

Buckingham Palace announced the development in a statement: 'The Queen has agreed to the creation of a new Household for The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, following their marriage in May a year ago.

Harry and Meghan's office and staff will move to Buckingham Palace in the coming months.

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

A body language expert claimed Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle are prepared to re-ignite their friendship after the warm greeting.

In a statement, the Palace said the changes for the Sussexes "will ensure that permanent support arrangements for The Duke and Duchess' work are in place as they start their family and move to their official residence at Frogmore Cottage".

In a major seal of approval, the Queen gave permission for Meghan and Harry to base their new Household Office at Buckingham Palace while William and Kate will remain at Kensington Palace.

Fans are predicting the royal bub will arrive at the end of April, as Meghan's sister-in-law, Kate, had her final engagement on March 22 a year ago before going on maternity leave.

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. And I think that is what we are seeing at yesterday's Commonwealth service. Queen Elizabeth has now agreed to allow them to set up a new base at Buckingham Palace this Spring. But I think we are increasingly going to see the Sussexes doing their thing, the Cambridges doing their thing. "They have a very clear idea of what they want to do and the instructions from the top and, of course, that comes from Prince William at Kensington Palace, they don't want others treading".

Britain's Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, stand with Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, and Britain's Prince William at Westminster Abbey for a Commonwealth Day service in London, Britain March 11, 2019.

The long-standing Communications Secretary, Jason Knauf, will become a "special adviser" to William and Kate.
