- Kate Middleton’s personal secretary, Catherine Quinn, is reportedly stepping down from her position.
- Catherine worked for the duchess for two years and they’re parting on the “best of terms.”
There’s yet another shake-up in the royal family’s staff, and before the internet spirals into royal conspiracy theories, lemme just say there is no drama to be found here. According to the Daily Mail, Kate Middleton’s personal secretary, Catherine Quinn, is stepping down from her position after two years working with the duchess.
The pair are said to be parting on the “best of terms,” but it’ll definitely be a big transition for Kate considering Catherine is essentially in charge of everything in her working life—from organizing her diary to accompanying her to meetings and royal engagements.
Apparently, Catherine’s decision to leave has nothing to do with disliking her job—she simply wants to work part time with a charity.
“Catherine is a thoroughly lovely lady and has achieved a lot working for the duchess. But she simply wants to take a step back and focus again on her charity work,” a source says. “Working for the duchess was actually never a job she had ever thought of taking on as she was scaling down her commitments, but then it came up and she couldn’t resist. She has done an incredible job but just wants some more time for other interests and feels she has helped the duchess create a solid platform in order to move forward. Catherine has helped to created such a strong team around the duchess, sources say, that she feels it is a good time to move on. They are parting on the best of terms.”
Kate is presumably going to be on the hunt for a new personal secretary, and apparently, Catherine was making a “six-figure salary” that was “met by Prince Charles, through his private income from the Duchy of Cornwall.” So, uh, go ahead and apply for the job through whatever the royal version of LinkedIn is.
