Harry and Meghan’s business Archewell has lost two other key staff members – bringing the total number of workers lost since 2018 to 16. Fara Taylor, who heads Archewell’s marketing team Productions, and Ben Browning, head of internal content, would both leave their roles with the company.
Ms Taylor oversaw the marketing team during the release of Harry’s memoir, Spare, and the couple’s Netflix docuseries.
The Telegraph reports that the Duke and Duchess are “tremendously grateful” for the pair’s support, as well as their “vital retrospective plans”.
The report also says the couple believe Ms Taylor and Mr Browning have “exceeded expectations”.
Although they won’t officially launch Archewell until late 2020, the Duke and Duchess have reportedly lost sixteen members of their staff since 2018.

The company’s communications manager told the newspaper that the couple were leaving after “leaving their mark in the cultural zeitgeist”.
Mr Browning, who is an Oscar-nominated producer, plays an “integral” role in the production of the Netflix series Harry and Meghan.
The series has been dubbed Netflix’s most-watched debut documentary series.
Reports claim Mr Browning’s departure will be followed by a “period of focus on producing scripted content”.

Ms Taylor’s departure comes to light after the Sussexes plan to ‘streamline the marketing arm of the business’.
Following his departure, it was announced that Ashley Hansen, who is head of communications at Archewell, will now lead the marketing team.
Following the announcement of her departure, Ms Hansen praised both Ms Taylor and Mr Browning for “creating and executing many critically and publicly acclaimed projects” and noted that both played an “essential role” in helping the couple tell their story to the public.
