Prince Charles has appointed Eva Omaghomi as the Director of Community engagement, a newly created role aimed at improving diversity in royal households.
The role became necessary after the senior Royals decided to improve efforts to champion the rights of minorities, DailyMail reported.
Omaghomi is Prince Charles’ most senior black aid and with this position, she’ll help in boosting relations between the royal households and minority groups.
The job also requires her to “help take forward Their Royal Highnesses’ work with minority groups in the UK, Commonwealth and globally, building on a legacy stretching back to the 1970s”.
The 43-year-old Omaghomi is also a christian minister and one of the trustees of the Big Kid Foundation, a non-governmental organisation fighting against youth violence.
A source said, “Eva is an excellent choice for the new role. She’s loyal and discreet and the Prince trusts her judgment.”
Prior to this new appointment, the British-Nigerian appointee has been in the service of the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall for 13 years.
She had served at the Clarence House as the deputy communications secretary. She was recently a senior strategic adviser to the Prince’s Trust Group, a position which she held for two years.
