What pushed Meghan Markle’s assistant to resign? Melissa Touabti, a 39-year-old French woman recently said her goodbyes to the royal family after just a few months. A surprising decision since for the woman who used to be Robbie William’s assistant…
‘It’s a real shock. Why would she want to leave such a prestigious job so soon?’ said an anonymous source to the Daily Mail. After taking care of the Duchess of Sussex during her marriage, Melissa started to fit in really well among the members of the Palace staff and was really appreciated by the Royal Family.
‘She is hugely talented and played a pivotal role in the success of the royal wedding. She’ll be missed by everyone in the household,’ continued the anonymous source.
A position that was ‘highly pressurised’
Although Melissa Touabti hasn’t said so herself, a source close to Meghan Markle has confessed the truth to the Daily Mail.
‘Her job was highly pressurised and in the end, it became too much. She put up with quite a lot. Meghan put a lot of demands on her and it ended up with her in tears. Melissa is a total professional and fantastic at her job, but things came to a head and it was easier for them both to go their separate ways.’ It turns out her royal highness could be a princess after all… maybe even a bit too much!
But one question remains… How long will Meghan Markle’s next assistant last in this job?
