Amy, a University of Nottingham graduate, used to work for Royal Bank of Scotland and the HM Treasury. She became a member of the Kensington Palace press team in 2016, but will now work solely for Harry and Meghan. According to Daily Mail, Amy's job will include everything from organising Meghan's diary to collecting flowers and gifts on engagements. Her initial move to Harry’s personal team was "long planned". Amy was pictured collecting flowers for the royal couple in Cardiff on Thursday afternoon. This was Harry and Meghan's third official joint engagement together.

The loved-up duo's visit to Wales comes shortly after their successful visits to Nottingham and Brixton in south London. The Prince has been taking the time to introduce the American actress to destinations around the UK, a place she will come to call home. Elsewhere, Harry is still working with former Army officer, Edward Lane Fox, who was appointed the Prince's private secretary in 2013. Both Harry and Edward have proudly served for the Blues and Royals.
