Hillary Clinton‘s former campaign advisor is trading politics for the palace.

Amid the creation of a new office for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry – a break from their previous joint “court” at Kensington Palace with Kate Middleton and Prince William – the royal parents-to-be have appointed Sara Latham as the head of their communications team, the palace announced Thursday.

A press release from Kensington Palace states that Latham “joins from Freuds where she oversaw global corporate accounts with a particular emphasis on executive thought leadership and purpose-led campaigns.” Latham was a former senior adviser on Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.

Latham, who holds dual citizenship in the U.K. and U.S., also has experience in the U.K. government, serving as Special Advisor to the Secretary of State for Culture, Media, Sport and Olympics
