The Duke and the Duchess of Sussex have started working on their non-profit foundation after the coronavirus pandemic forced them to set the project aside for some months. The couple are now spending hundreds of thousands of pounds on hiring the right people for their charity, according to the Daily Telegraph.

After the couple stepped down from their royal roles in March, 13 of their staff lost their roles with the Firm.

However, the Duke and the Duchess have recruited two former employees to work on a freelance basis for their charity.

Beth Herlihy and Clara Loughran will be taking on commissions for the foundation’s future missions.

Ms Loughran is wife of Nick Loughran, the Duke’s former assistant communications secretary, and had worked for Harry since 2015.

“During the NHS clapping, I thought how, after the Cambridges clapped, it would have been great to have heard from him.”

Mr Vickers argued this may not happen as he described Prince Harry as being in “self-exile”.
