ELF ELF ELF ELF ELF.

Ok got that out of my system. I’m going to miss that initial. :lol:

I’m really happy with the time ELF spent serving as Harry’s Private Secretary. He set up the office and helped Harry navigate life as a working royal while remaining himself. Helped turn his passion into worthy causes and projects. And of course, he’s also been said to be very instrumental to Meghan, both while they were dating and with the wedding. I could not be more pleased with how their public life during the engagement and how the wedding turned out. Huge credit to ELF!

I second that! Thank you so much ELF. (Wonder whether future Private Secs will have such great initials?) Hope the next Private Secretary is as good. I think Edward always had Harry's back and I think they were excellent friends. Good luck in his future career.

An aide of Meghan’s has apparently quit.

Who is Melissa? The bogus story about the tiara and now this. I am sorry but I think it's a smear campaign against Meghan.

Osipi 11-09-2018 10:27 PM

Of course, if anyone were to quit such a "prestigious" job such as working for The Duchess of Sussex, the blame would be put on Meghan. Never mind that people do quit their jobs for personal reasons of their own such as marriage, pregnancy, family responsibilities and need to relocate and a bazillion other good reasons.

This article was written solely to smear Meghan as Marlo stated and I'm in agreement with that. Its what the tabloids do. Its what they feed on. Its why they're not worth paying attention to. Its why they are best served to line bird cages and collect what they print. ;)

Curryong 11-09-2018 10:43 PM

Yes the venom is fairly dripping off the page. And who Melissa is, God knows. Meghan's Private Secretary is Samantha Cohen. The Assistant PS is Amy Pickerell, so describing this person as 'Meghan's closest aide' is more than a bit of an exaggeration! The Fail never allows the facts to get in the way of a good jab at Meghan, however.

Richard Eden also falsely accused Mulroneys of accepting a free Jaguar last week. Jessica and Ben unequivocally denied it when the story came out.

Marlo 11-09-2018 11:30 PM

Richard Eden tweeted Dan Wootton last night.

@richardaeden: Wasn't this in our serialisation of @theroyaleditor's book last week?

@DanWootton: No it wasn’t. Although I read every word of that and it’s a brilliant book.

@richardaeden: Great story

So Richard fabricated the personal assistant story. Disgusting.

jacqui24 11-10-2018 12:01 AM

Btw, didn’t we just have the very opposite reporting from the same publications from those tabloids not too long ago in regards to the Duchess of Sussex before? Where she was accused, in a negative tone, about being too close to staff? Now she’s, in the same negative tone, too bitchy to them? GMAFB.

jacqui24 11-10-2018 12:34 AM

One more thought, I highly doubt a PA would be left to deal with the Thomas Markle situation instead of all Private Secretary, Assistant Private Secretaries, and Communications staff. Even the task of picking up Doria from the airport was handled by Amy Pickerill personally.

W.Y.CII 11-10-2018 01:03 AM

I am really tired of these jokes from DF. Not even worth to discuss. But still some people would sadly take DF seriously. :ermm:

Just a thought folks, is it possible that the mysterious Melissa is in fact, Samantha Cohen? If I remember correctly there was "a tiff at the Palace" and HM's Private Secretary, Sir Christopher Geidt, resigned in high dudgeon and Samantha resigned in solidarity. However, HM persuaded her to stay to help get the Sussexes, and in particular Meghan, successfully launched for their first of six months?

If it is Samantha, her leaving has been in the works for since July 2017.

BINGO!!! You hit the nail on the head. DM just stirring the pot because they have nothing else better to do with their time and energies.

The Daily Mail has also thrown Edward Lane Fox's resignation into the story too, even though his leaving was announced Summer 2017.

Zaira 11-10-2018 11:15 PM

The DM has at least SEVEN stories on the Sussexes right now on its online front page. Insanity!

To insinuate that ELF's leaving is because of Meghan, as they are, is so shady and I hope Harry files an IPSO complaint. ELF announced he was leaving well over a year ago and there were rumors he was leaving before that even because of his wife's rumored health issues.

Sam Cohen was always supposed to stick around for 6 months only. Again, the DM is insinuating that there is an issue with Meghan (never Harry apparently).

I've noticed for a long time that negative stories tend to pop up when the Sussexes, specifically Meghan, has been out of public eye for a little bit. It used to be the case with the Markle stories. I suppose they have to come up with something to generate clicks if there is nothing else they can write about Meghan.

Curryong 11-11-2018 12:38 AM

Who is the mysterious Melissa? A phantom? She's not among senior staff listed as working at KP. She can't be Samantha as the DM is saying that Sam is the second to leave, along with ELF, both of whom were going to leave anyway.

British tabloids IMO have stored these stories up for when the Sussexes came back from their successful tour. It's disgusting, and imagine how disheartened Meghan, who is not used to these onslaughts must feel.

MARG 11-11-2018 02:47 AM

:previous: Well, whoever the mysterious Melissa is, according to the media KP have broken with tradition and said she was the best thing since sliced bread was invented and they'll miss her. Has anyone found that press release? ROFL
