Buckingham Palace is in troubled waters amidst bullying claims that the senior staff made against Meghan Markle when she was still an active royal. The Duchess of Sussex has been in many controversies regarding her relationship with the Royals. However, it looked like she had finally had enough when she decided to question the judgment of the bullying claims. Here is what happened.
Palace staff reports Meghan Markle is a bully
As reported by MarieClaire, in 2019 before the royal exit of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, there had been claims of Meghan Markle being harsh towards the royal staff. So much so that an official report was published by HR. They even put out a statement saying:
We are clearly very concerned about allegations in the Times following claims made by former staff of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex
According to DailyMail, Jason Knauff, the couple's ex-press secretary, stated:
I am very concerned that the Duchess was able to bully two PAs out of the household in the past year. The treatment of X [Name redacted] was totally unacceptable.
Meghan questioned the claims against her and demanded to see the official reports along with the names of the people who lodged such complaints. In addition to this, she sincerely denied these allegations. A spokesperson put out a statement saying:
The Duchess is saddened by this latest attack on her character, particularly as someone who has been the target of bullying herself and is deeply committed to supporting those who have experienced pain and trauma
Still no reports
While the investigation was launched into the matter, The Sunday Times of London reported over the weekend that the Palace will not release it to the public. This is only adding to rumors that the reports are being 'buried' due to their alleged 'untruthful nature'.
Moreover, Meghan Markle fans have been taking to Twitter to express their dismay over this issue and the hashtag #royalfamilylied is being used by many to convey how they feel about the whole ordeal.
Another user commented saying:
The British Royal Family were loud and wrong with their bullying allegations, but yet silent with the results. So Basically They Lied about Princess Meghan being a bully. We already knew she was innocent.
