He was with them since April 2019 and is said to have joined private equity group Bridgepoint as a partner. Jones was said to be close with Prince William, also serving as his private secretary since September. He took over for Simon Case.
A source told the Telegraph, “Whereas Simon was credited with making the Duke a statesman – Christian has really helped them to steer them through their public-facing role during the pandemic.”
“He’s helped them to grow in confidence by gently pushing them out of their comfort zone.”
Jones was previously head of news at the Department for Exiting the European Union, and as such he was called a “Brexit spin doctor.”
Despite his departure it is being reported that Jones will continue to be an advisor for the royal couple.
