We rundown the top 5 news stories of the week!

From the 'Fab Four' splitting court, to the horrific New Zealand Terror attack, this was the week that was the 11th March...

5. 'Fab Four' Split

Buckingham Palace finally confirmed the news long suspected; The ‘Fab Four’ are to split courts. William and Kate will continue to use Kensington Palace residence for their offices and home, whereas Harry and Meghan will instead set up a new household under Buckingham Palace.

The Sussex’s are expected to move into Frogmore Cottage on the Windsor estate in Spring, and will move into the shared office space with HRH The Duke of York, Princess Ann and the Wessex’s. Furthermore, the couple have also hired Sara Latham, who has previously worked for the Clintons, as their new Head of Communications.

Unlike William and Kate’s court, Harry and Meghan’s will have to report to the Queen’s Private Secretary and will no longer be entirely independent of Buckingham Palace, meaning they will no longer be able to go off and do their own thing.
