Meghan Markle is on a hiring spree, a stressful process for anyone. However, the Duchess of Sussex has more to worry about than the average boss. A mistake could be a security threat.

Radar Online reports, “Intelligence agents are now on red alert, as it’s feared a frantic recruitment process may inadvertently open palace doors to terrorists and stalkers.”

Buckingham Palace will have to make sure they thoroughly investigate the backgrounds of serious job applicants. Though potential employees must sign a notice stating that they could face criminal charges for lying about their background, security experts warned the outlet that a disclaimer like that won’t deter a terrorist or stalker.

Due to how many staffers the Duchess of Sussex is hiring, security experts worry that Buckingham Palace might try to rush through the process of checking background. They’ll have to stay vigilant even though they’re in a rush.

Meghan has lost a few staffers. Assistant private secretary Amy Pickerill is the latest to announce her exit. She reportedly is moving overseas, and that means she can’t step in for private secretary Samantha Cohen, who is set to leave after Meghan gives birth. They aren’t the first staffers to leave the Sussexes. Meghan’s personal assistant Melissa Touabti quit just after the wedding last year.

“Meghan basically has no close staff left, just before the birth of her child,” a source told Radar. “It’s causing her huge stress.”

Meghan is not only trying to fill the secretary positions, but she’s likely trying to hire a nanny. Rumors have circulated that the couple may go without a childcare provider or that the Duchess’ mother Doria Ragland would fill the role. However, it’s thought that the two will likely follow tradition and get a nanny.

Reports last month claimed that Meghan loves the way Prince William and Kate Middleton’s nanny, Maria Borallo, looks after the children. She supposedly offered to double Borallo’s salary, but the nanny is happy caring for the future King of England.

It’s not just personal staff that needs to be hired, though. She and Harry are separating their royal household from that of Prince William and Kate Middleton. As that process continues, they’ll need to hire more employees. Sara Latham has already been hired as their head of communications.
