Simon Case, Prince William’s private secretary for the past two years, has been offered a temporary assignment that forces him to get away from the royal family for a while. The 41-year-old will work with the English government to prepare for the post-coronavirus era.

Prince William will have to separate from his right-hand man Simon Case for an indefinite period of time. Indeed, the Duke of Cambridge’s private secretary for the past two years has been given a leading role at Downing Street to help develop and implement the government’s response to Covid-19. As reported by Hello! the Prime Minister’s official spokesman said, however, that once the assignment was completed, he could return to Kate Middleton’s husband.

Boris Johnson’s official spokesman said: “Simon Case is working on the coronavirus response as a permanent secretary and is therefore leaving the royal house temporarily. The coronavirus is obviously something that members of the government are working on a lot at the moment. In addition, Simon will report to the Cabinet Secretary, Sir Mark Sedwill.”

Before starting his assignment for Prince William in July 2018, he was Director General for Northern Ireland and Ireland in the Department for Exit from the EU. At only 41 years of age, this Englishman can boast of having worked with the greatest.
