Meghan Markle’s bodyguard quits after six months working for pregnant Duchess of Sussex

Meghan Markle has lost yet another royal staffer since becoming the Duchess of Sussex.

The former “Suits” star’s bodyguard, an officer employed by the Scotland Yard police, called it quits after just six months on the job, reports say.
