The outlet's royal correspondent, Rebecca English, reported that Quinn's role as private secretary had seen her work closely with the Duchess of Cambridge for the two years that she held the position. Notably, Quinn played a key role in helping the royal develop her "early years" project, which focuses on developing support groups and organisations to help young people deal with pressing social issues like crime and addiction.
While it is still unclear as to why Quinn has offered her resignation, a source reportedly told English that, "Catherine is a thoroughly lovely lady and has achieved a lot working for the Duchess. But she simply wants to take a step back and focus again on her charity work. They are parting on the best of terms."
