"Melissa is a total professional and fantastic at her job, but things came to a head and it was easier for them both to go their separate ways," the source noted.

RadarOnline.com previously reported that Toubati had resigned her position with Markle, now 37 and pregnant, amid rumors about the new royal's diva ways. In royal biographer Robert Jobson‘s book Charles at 70: Thoughts, Hopes and Dreams, he claimed that before the wedding, Prince Harry, 34, raised his voice and yelled, “What Meghan wants, she gets!”

Also, there are allegations that the Queen warned Harry about "difficult" Markle's attitude after a dispute over what tiara she could wear on her wedding day. Royal correspondent Richard Palmer has written, "It is clear that Meghan is regarded as difficult and demanding by some in the family and on the staff.”

And this weekend news leaked from the Daily Mail sources that Markle had wanted an improvement before she walked down the aisle at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle in her May wedding. The Mail's sources said Markle allegedly was upset about by the musty odor of the 15th century chapel and "asked for air fresheners to be deployed before her guests arrived."

According to the Mirror, when Toubati resigned as Markle's personal assistant, a palace source was authorized to praise her and the role she played in organizing Harry's royal wedding.

But one royal source also told the publication former actress Markle has been judged too harshly as she tries to fit into royal life: "She is simply not afraid to express her opinion. "While many find her a little pushy there are many in the royal household who have quickly taken to her."
