- Meghan Markle and Prince Harry just hired Sara Latham for their communications team, who worked on Hillary Clinton's campaign during the 2016 election.
- This hire is part of a formal split between Prince Harry and Prince William's royal houses, aka, they're separating their staffs.
Major royal news! Prince Harry and Meghan Markle just totally revamped their staff, and it now includes an alum from Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign.
Sara Latham, one of HRC's campaign advisors, will be the head of Meghan and Harry's communications team. The royal family released a statement on the news today.

General thoughts on this "worlds collide" moment:
This change is part of a major shift in the royal household. Basically, beforehand, Harry's communications team also handled Meghan's stuff, and it was part of Kate Middleton and Prince William's team at Kensington Palace.
𝘽𝙍𝙀𝘼𝙆𝙄𝙉𝙂 - The Queen has agreed to the creation of a new Household for The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, following their marriage in May last year. The Household, which will be created with the support of The Queen and The Prince of Wales, will be established in the spring.- Omid Scobie (@scobie) March 14, 2019
But now, Will and Harry are "splitting their royal households," which just means that Meghan and Harry are getting a team that's specifically for them, and it'll be based in Buckingham Palace with the Queen, instead of in Kensington Palace with Kate/Will.
FYI, Meg and Harry are still planning on moving into Frogmore Cottage in Windsor ASAP. This news just pertains to their office.
Rumors of this formal logistical separation first came back in February, but this makes it offish.
