10 Royal Aides Come Forward In Bullying Investigation Of Meghan Markle
Buckingham Palace is examining bullying accusations against Meghan Markle that are coming to light right before the tell-all with Oprah airs.
At least 10 royal aides to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have come forward and are willing to speak in Buckingham Palace’s investigation into bullying accusations made against Meghan Markle.
Sources say the Queen demanded urgent action from her most trusted advisors following the publication of bullying allegations against Meghan.
Harry and Meghan’s communications secretary lodged a bullying complaint in an email to Palace Human Resources in October 2018.
Now, the Palace is investigating whether Meghan “humiliated” aides by subjecting them to “emotional cruelty and manipulation.” Two personal assistants were reportedly forced out.
While this sounds like bad news for the former actress, she does have an ally with a “Suits” writer.
Royal Aides Assured Of Confidentiality In Bullying Investigation
The Mirror reports that Palace investigators are giving these aides assurances of confidentiality.
One royal source said the aides are coming forward because they “have been silent for too long.”

“We will finally be able to tell the truth,” the source said. “It’s not going to be easy, but this is very welcome and long overdue.
The accusations came out right before Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s tell all interview with Oprah Winfrey.
The talk show host stirred the pot by releasing a short video clip that appears to address these latest accusations.
It also further pits Prince Harry against his family during this trying time since his grandfather, 99-year-old Prince Philip, continues recovering in the hospital battling an infection and heart surgery.
“I don’t know how they could expect that after all of this time, we would still just be silent if there is an active role that The Firm is playing in perpetuating falsehoods about us,” Meghan tells Oprah in the video below.
As Meghan prepares to air the Royal Family’s dirty laundry, she is getting similar treatment.
The Sun reports the Duchess “had furious rows with Palace aides over freebie designer clothes.” This allegedly happened at the same time the staff claims it was bullied by Meghan.
Meghan Markle Livid At Staff Over Free Designer Clothes Protocol
The actress apparently became livid with aides when she was told she could not keep designer clothes that were sent to Kensington Palace after it was announced that she was dating Prince Harry.
Keeping them is against royal protocol. The Sun Reports that Meghan was not accepting of this and took it out on the staff.
“Suits” writer Jon Cowen has come to Markle’s defense.
“It’s also possible the Duchess of Sussex is a good person thrust into an unimaginable world,” Cowan tweeted. “Having spent 3 years working with her in her pre-Duchess days, I saw a warm, kind, caring person. I know nothing of her current situation but she gets the benefit of the doubt in my book.”
