Kate Middleton is reportedly contemplating Lieutenant Colonel Tom White, a distinguished war hero and former equerry to the late Queen Elizabeth II, as her potential private secretary.
Acknowledged for thwarting a Taliban bomb plot in Afghanistan, the 36-year-old father has been invited by the Princess of Wales to accompany her at a public engagement, providing him with a firsthand understanding of the associated responsibilities.
Although Lt Col White has not been formally appointed, sources suggest that he is likely to accept the position.
If confirmed, this groundbreaking appointment would shatter tradition, marking the inaugural instance of a male assuming the role of private secretary in Kensington Palace.
Lt Col Tom White as late Queen Elizabeth's equerry:
Known for his exemplary service, Lt Col White joined Buckingham Palace in 2020 as the late Queen's equerry, remaining by her side during her final years.
Lt Col White, a war hero with a distinguished military career, served alongside the late Queen, demonstrating his dedication and loyalty.
His extensive experience in the Royal Marines, including his role in averting a school bombing in Helmand, showcases a remarkable track record.
On the other hand, Kate Middleton has been without a private secretary for over a year since the departure of her previous employee, Hannah Cockburn-Logie, for personal reasons in 2022.
