Meghan Markle Was Just Spotted at Lunch with Her New Communications Secretary

When Meghan Markle stepped out in Notting Hill on Friday, we were all looking at her effortlessly chic, off-duty, ripped denim look. But what we should’ve been paying attention to, was who she’d been dining with.

According to E! News, the man spotted at lunch with Meghan on Friday was Christian Jones, the new Deputy Communications Secretary to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Here’s everything you need to know about Meghan’s new member of staff:

He will support Meghan and Harry, and Kate and William.

In his new role as the Deputy Communications Secretary to the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke & Duchess of Sussex (which is quite a mouthful), The Daily Mail reports that Jones will apparently liaise with “British and international media,” as well as “supporting the young royals’ charitable work and engagements.”

It’s Jones’ job to discuss press strategy with Meghan, Harry, William, and Kate, and to prepare them for any public events with press.
