Meghan Markle’s diva behavior may have cost her a personal assistant. The former Suits star’s top personal assistant, Melissa, shockingly resigned after half a year on the job. Melissa played an important role in Markle’s wedding last May, and inside sources claim that Markle’s attitude may have been the reason behind her resignation.
“Melissa is a hugely talented person,” an insider shared. “She played a pivotal role in the success of the Royal Wedding and will be missed by everyone in the Royal Household.”

Melissa is believed to have resigned without giving Markle any notice. The resignation reportedly took place in the weeks following Markle and Prince Harry’s wedding last spring. According to Radar Online, Melissa also helped contain the scandal with Markle’s father, Thomas.
As fans will recall, Thomas faked photos prior to the royal ceremony, a stunt that embarrassed the entire royal family. Kensington Palace has not said why Markle’s personal assistant decided to leave, but sources believe Markle’s behavior played a role.
This is not the first time Markle has been accused of acting like a diva. In his recent royal biography, Charles at 70: Thoughts, Hopes and Dreams, author Robert Jobson claims that Prince Harry once yelled at staffers, “What Meghan wants, she gets!”
Jobson also wrote that Queen Elizabeth and Markle argued about the tiara she wore on her wedding day. Markle apparently wanted to wear an emerald tiara but Her Majesty would not allow it because it came from an unknown origin. Markle ended up rocking a platinum and diamond tiara instead.

The service marks the finale of a day of national events to commemorate the end of the First World War, 100 years ago today. More on @theroyalfamily.
Jobson also claims that Elizabeth warned Harry about how Markle treated the palace staff. Elizabeth did not approve how Markle acted towards staff and told Harry that she needed to mind the family rules.
Markle has not commented on the rumors surrounding her former assistant. The actress just announced that she is expecting her first child with Prince Harry. The couple’s child is due next spring.
While Meghan Markle remains silent about the rumors, she recently made an appearance alongside Prince Harry, Prince William, and Kate Middleton for Remembrance Day in London.
