Rebecca, 34, has assisted Kate since 2012. She organises official programmes and engagements, ensuring the Duchess is always briefed on who she is going to meet. Prior to this, she worked for Prince Harry's charity Sentebale.

A Kensington Palace spokesperson said: "After a decade of service to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, Rebecca Deacon will be stepping down as private secretary to the Duchess of Cambridge. She plans to leave the household in the summer. Their Royal Highnesses are incredibly grateful for all the hard work and support Rebecca has provided over the past ten years, and wish her well in the next phase of her career."

It's not yet been reported what Rebecca will do next, but she's due to marry her fiancé Adam Priestley at St James's Palace later this month. The location is used exclusively used by people with a direct link to the royal family.
