Ms Mostow previously worked for Prince and Seal and was employed by David Beckham after he started playing for LA Galaxy in 2007.

An inside source told The Sun on Sunday: ‘Rebecca is extremely discreet, diligent and professional and has been around high-end celebrities for decades.

Who is Rebecca Mostow and who will she be joining on the Duke and Duchess’s LA team?

Mother-of-two Rebecca Mostow, 70, was brought in by the couple to help run their day-to-day lives in Beverly Hills, reports suggest.

Ms Mostow previously worked for Prince and Seal and was employed by David Beckham after he started playing for LA Galaxy in 2007. 

Ms Mostow worked for XIX Entertainment as an account manager for five years until 2012, according to a LinkedIn account which appears to belong to her.

The artist-management company is run by Simon Fuller, best known managing the Spice Girls.

He is still considered one of David Beckham’s closest advisors and handles most of his business ventures. 

Catherine St-Laurent was one of Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates and his wife Melinda’s leading executives and has been hired as ‘chief of staff’ and ‘executive director’ of Harry and Meghan’s non-profit enterprise.

She was the director at Pivotal Ventures, Melinda Gates’ women and families foundation, supporting campaigns that aimed to help improve the lives of women around the globe.

Media guru Keleigh Thomas Morgan is also on the team. 

She represented Meghan in her acting days and remains a close friend.

Her team is also reported to include Hollywood agent Nick Collins, of The Gersh Agency, whose clients include Kristen Stewart and Adam Driver.

Meghan’s Beverly Hills-based business manager, Andrew Meyer, also has Hollywood experience, as does her LA lawyer, Rick Genow.

‘She’s exactly what Harry and Meghan were looking for and came highly recommended.

‘Rebecca has her work cut out. But then, working with Prince can’t have been a walk in the park.’

The new hire follows reports that Prince Harry has found himself surrounded on all sides by ‘Team Meghan’ at the couple’s new home.

Several of her closest friends live near the vast £14.5million villa the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have moved into.

They include key figures in Meghan’s life such as long-term friends Benita Litt, Heather Dorak and Abigail Spencer. 

Meghan has told pals she is delighted to be back in her hometown and near friends and her mother, Doria Ragland. 

But friends of Harry, 35, have voiced fears that he has few contacts or friends in LA, and will be reliant on his wife’s close circle of confidantes. 

Meghan’s friend Serena Williams, also 38, lives in a neighbouring gated community with her husband and their daughter Alexis Olympia, two.

Of her long-term friends, Benita is based a short drive away in Venice Beach, on the Pacific coast.

Meghan is godmother to her two young daughters, who were bridesmaids at her wedding to Harry. 

Pilates instructor Heather – who Meghan once described as her ‘bestie’ – is just up the coast in Santa Monica.

The married mother-of-two was one of the first friends to visit Meghan on Vancouver Island after she and Harry announced they were stepping back from royal duties. 

Former Suits actress Abigail Spencer, also 38, another long-term friend, lives in Studio City in LA.

Conservation campaigner Jane Goodall said she had spoken to Harry last month and revealed he was finding his new life somewhat difficult. 

She said: ‘I don’t know how his career is going to map out, but, yes, I’ve been in touch – though I think he’s finding life a bit challenging right now.’

It has also been revealed that the luxury 22-acre compound where the Duke and Duchess of Sussex celebrated baby Archie’s first birthday last Wednesday would cost a staggering £200,000 a month to rent.

Neighbour Steve Frankel, who owns a house a stone’s-throw from the lavish 22-acre compound where the Duke and Duchess of Sussex celebrated baby Archie’s first birthday last Wednesday, told The Mail on Sunday the enclave’s peace and quiet has been shattered by the new arrivals.

‘We’ve had helicopters over the house since 5.30am. If this goes on for much longer Harry and Meghan may have some angry neighbours,’ Frankel, an estate agent, said.

‘We’re hoping the paparazzi will give up after a few days.’

It is unclear whether Harry and Meghan are paying rent or are guests of Mr Perry, who is reportedly worth £500 million.

Frankel, who is known as the ‘realtor to the stars’, says Perry’s 24,545 square foot, eight-bedroom home is worth £50 million.
