On Thursday, it was shared that the Sussexes and the Cambridges have broken up their joint “court” at Kensington Palace by creating two separate offices.
Rumours of this split began swirling in November 2018.
It is believed Queen Elizabeth has agreed to the creation of a new household for Meghan and Harry.
The boys' father Prince Charles is also in support of the decision, which will be kick off in spring.
“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,” a statement from the palace said.
Meghan and Harry’s office will also be moving out of Kensington Palace and into Buckingham Palace, where the Queen resides. However, Meghan and Harry will be living at their new cottage home in Windsor later this spring.
William and Kate’s office will remain in Kensington Palace, where they live with their three children.
Prince Harry currently has his own private office, which has been supporting both his work and Meghan’s since their engagement in November 2017.
The royal couple, who are expecting their first child in April, will also appoint new communications staff, who will form part of the Buckingham Palace communications team and report to The Queen’s Communications Secretary, Donal McCabe.
Kensington Palace will continue to support Meghan and Harry until that team is in place.
