Catherine Quinn (R) is set to replace Rebecca Priestley as Kate’s private secretary

After Kensington Palace announced Rebecca Priestley, who has spent more than a decade with the Royals, was stepping down from the role, it has emerged that high-flying Ms Quinn will take over.

The 58-year-old will effectively become Kate’s chief of staff and given her impressive track record, the appointment suggests the Duchess is ready to take on a more serious role as a Royal ambassador after coming under fire for not conducting enough duties.

Ms Quinn will leave her job at Oxford University’s Said Business School to take on the royal role in October and is likely to receive a six-figure salary, which will be met by Prince Charles through his private income from the Duchy of Cornwall.

She has also previously held leadership positions at the Wellcome Trust and the Middle Temple, as well as positions on the boards of the Charity Commission, the Met Office, the Royal British Legion and the National Memorial Arboretum.

The appointment is a significant one. Her predecessor, Ms Priestley, has been working for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry for more than 10 years and has become a key member of Kate’s inner circle, often referred to as her ‘Girl Friday’.

It also comes just days after Prince William quit his job as an air ambulance pilot in order to support the Queen by taking on more royal duties, with 95-year-old Prince Philip set to retire tomorrow.

A divorced mother-of-one, Ms Quinn was born in Lancashire and has an MBA from Oxford University’s Saïd Business School, as well as degrees from other US and UK universities.

As private secretary, Ms Quinn will become a key part of every aspect of Kate’s public and private life.

The appointment is one of several changes to the running of the royal households this year. It was also announced yesterday that Sir Christopher Geidt, the Queen’s private secretary, is set to leave his post after 10 years.

He will be replaced by his deputy, Edward Young, in October.

Sir Christopher said: “It has been my very great privilege to serve the Queen since the Golden Jubilee in 2002 and, especially, as her private secretary for the past decade.

“In that time, as throughout her reign, her Majesty’s authority has brought stability, purpose and colour to country and Commonwealth alike.

“With the Duke of Edinburgh’s recent decision to draw back from public life, the Queen’s own unwavering commitment as sovereign has the full and active support of the entire Royal family.

“It is therefore with every confidence, and with Her Majesty’s agreement, that I now hand over the responsibilities of the Queen’s private secretary to my successor, Edward Young.”
