Up until now, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had the same communications team as Prince William and Kate Middleton.

The two opted to relocate because their new home will be more accommodating for their growing family.

Meghan and Kate Middleton made headlines for their warm embrace, putting rumours of a Royal feud to an end.

It is expected to be Meghan's last public engagement before she gives birth.
