Page Six: Harry and Meghan's New Charity Will Be Led by Bill & Melinda Gates' Top Staffer
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry landed one of Bill and Melinda Gates' top employees to manage their new charity, reports have claimed.
While the world awaits the final descent of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle from royalty, the duo have already begun setting their affairs in order.
According to a new report by Page Six, the couple has allegedly landed one of Bill and Melinda Gates' top workers to be the head of their new charity.
Meghan and Harry, who are parents to 10-month-old Archie, would stop being senior members of the royal family on March 31, 2020.
The news, which came soon after the site confirmed that Harry and his wife had relocated to a permanent home in Los Angeles, stated that the person they hired was Catherine St-Laurent.
Up until she was poached, the mother-of-two acted as a director at Pivotal Ventures, Melinda Gates' women and families foundation.
Catherine revealed through an email to her coworkers that she was going to work with "Meghan M and Harry" as the Chief of Staff and Executive Director of their new nonprofit project.
"It's not likely to be a traditional charity. Harry and Meghan want to find their own way of giving back and new ways to make change."
Jut as the pair are focused on building their future, Fox News revealed that the way they used to be addressed has already changed with some outfits.
Fox News reported that Smart Work, a charity that has Meghan as a patron, removed all mentions of her as either "HRH" or "royal" on its website.
The charity's website has taken to referring to the "Suits" alum as "The Duchess of Sussex" rather than "Our Royal Patron."
Additionally, a page was labelled "Our Patron, The Duchess of Sussex," thus replacing the original "Our Royal Patron HRH The Duchess of Sussex."
The charity's decision appeared to have fallen in line with the directive given by members of the royal family. It would be recollected that Meghan and Harry lost all claims to trademark the name "Sussex Royal" for their future efforts.
According to Harper's Bazaar, the couple agreed to not use the word "royal" in the name of their new nonprofit, back in February.
