BUCKINGHAM PALACE are bringing in a team of independent investigators to launch the probe into claims Meghan Markle bullied royal staff, it has been reported.

However, it has emerged that Prince Harry and William have finally “been in contact” amid the Oprah fall out after it was reported they had not spoken for months.
