After Meghan Markle joined the royal family in 2018, many negative stories about her appeared in the press. For example, there were reports of problems occurring between the Duchess of Sussexes and her staff members.
According to a royal author, Meghan also allegedly had problems with Kate Middleton’s staff. In one instance, the author reported that Meghan was “put in her place” by someone who worked for Kate.
Meghan Markle was accused of bullying by staff members who worked with her
In early 2020, Meghan and Prince Harry stepped down as senior royals and moved to the United States. A year later, British news outlet The Times published a report with claims that palace staffers experienced bullying at the hand of the duchess when she was still a working royal.
One claim was made by the Sussexes’ former press secretary Jason Knauf. In an email written by Knauf, he alleged that Meghan caused two assistants to leave the workplace.
“I am very concerned that the Duchess was able to bully two PAs out of the household in the past year,” Knauf wrote. “The treatment of X* was totally unacceptable.”
Knauf added, “The Duchess seems intent on always having someone in her sights. She is bullying Y and seeking to undermine her confidence. We have had report after report from people who have witnessed unacceptable behaviour towards Y.”
