Amy recently accompanied Meghan to Edinburgh, where Amy was on hand to collect gifts that were given to Prince Harrys bride-to-be. She will also be a point of contact for organisers or officials.

The new royal aide was a senior communications officer working for the households of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry before joining Harry’s office.

Amy, who went to Nottingham University, is a history graduate and has previously worked for the Royal Bank of Scotland in a number of roles in the press office department.
