New royal role for official Simon Case dealing with Irish border

By Tony Jones

The Government official charged with solving the Irish border issue in the Brexit talks has a new role - as Prince William's new private secretary.

The Duke of Cambridge has appointed Simon Case, who is part of Brexit Secretary David Davis's negotiating team.

Mr Case is one of the UK's leading officials trying to resolve the Irish border issue in talks with Brussels.

Mr Case is Director General Northern Ireland and Ireland in the Department for Exiting the EU, but in July will take over from Miguel Head when he leaves his post after 10 years of service.

Mr Head has been William's most senior aide for the past six years.
