Meet Meghan Markle's royal assistant, Amy Pickerill

On Thursday, as Meghan Markle undertook her first solo engagement with the queen, there was one woman sat in the shadows making sure the day was smooth sailing: the duchess’s assistant private secretary, Amy Pickerill. In January, Pickerill made her first public appearance with the royals during their visit to Cardiff Castle, where she was photographed helping Meghan pass the masses of excited well-wishers.
