Royal Central bids farewell to Assistant Editor Jessica Hope

With great sadness, Royal Central bids farewell to Jessica Hope – our Assistant Editor – at the end of this month.

Having worked with Royal Central for the past two years, both as a writer and then as an editor, Jessica is the site’s longest-serving contributor, having published over 125 articles to the site.

Jessica will be succeeded as Assistant Editor by Lydia Starbuck – currently Desk Editor – from 1st August.

Jessica said:

“I’d like to thank everyone at Royal Central for being such a great support over the past two years. It’s been such a pleasure being a writer and editor, and I can’t thank you all enough for all of your hard work.

I will miss being a regular contributor, but I will always be keeping up with the latest royal news on the site, that’s for sure!”
