The Dukes of Cambridge took advantage of the situation with the abdication of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry: the couple "lured" the couple's employee into their staff, who was their "secret weapon."
David Watkins was the head of social media marketing and the Instagram account for the Dukes of Sussex. It was with his help that more than 11 million followers followed the spouses online. David was laid off when it became known that Meghan and Harry were giving up their royal duties.
However, the social media guru did not stay without work for a long time. Now he has entered the staff of Prince William and Kate Middleton. David will again occupy the same position as the brother of the future king.
He has worked for the Dukes of Sussex since last April. For the sake of cooperation with the couple, David quit the Burberry fashion house. Insiders claim that he did most of the work together with Megan, who, before her marriage, was actively leading Instagram, where she communicated with fans of the Force Majeure series.
Meghan and Harry started an Instagram page on April 2, 2019 and immediately broke the world record for the number of followers, with a million followers following in less than six hours. In late March, the couple announced that they were closing the Sussex Royal page and said goodbye to their loyal fans.
