During the Royally Obsessed podcast, Rachel Bowie and Roberta Fiorito discussed the recent departure of the Cambridge’s Communication Secretary Christian Jones. Ms Fiorito stated that his departure is the beginning of Prince William and Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge as well as Prince Charles and Camilla’s offices starting to “clean house”.
Ms Fiortio said: “Christian Jones who is a senior aide to Prince William and Kate Middleton has just resigned from his role.”
Ms Bowie stated regarding media speculation around Christian Jones’ exit: “There is all this stuff being churned up right now.
“It does not look good for a lot of these senior royal household members.”
Ms Fiorito added: “I have read that this is the beginning of the Cambridges and Charles and Camilla’s offices also starting to clean house… so this is all unfolding.”

They said: “Christian has really helped them to steer them through their public-facing role during the pandemic.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have both been praised for their work during the coronavirus pandemic.
Telegraph columnist Camilla Tominey claimed royal sources told her the Cambridge royals train tour across the UK showed they “are taking it upon themselves to keep the nation’s spirit up”.
They added: “What this year has done has reinforced the value of the Royal Family as natural actors of state.
“They are not celebrities – they are there, effectively, to thank people on the public’s behalf.”
During the first lockdown, Kate and William kept up with their busy agenda by moving most of their engagements online.
Once restrictions began to be eased, the pair took part in a series of official outings across the UK and in December launched into a three-day tour of Britain to thank NHS staff and volunteers for their hard work during the pandemic.
