Meghan Markle bullied staff leaving them “shaking in fear”, royal aides have reportedly claimed.
According to a report in The Times today, royal aides approached the newspaper to give their version of a story they’re worried will be whitewashed during the couple’s bombshell Oprah interview.
They claim Meghan was subject to a bullying complaint in October 2018 from October 2018 by Jason Knauf, the couple’s communications secretary at the time and one of Meghan’s most senior aides.
The complaint reportedly said the Duchess had already driven two personal assistants out of the household by constantly complaining about their work and were undermining the confidence of a third staff member.
Prince Harry pleaded with Knauf not to pursue the complaint which was said to have been made formally to get the Palace to give Meghan’s staff greater protection, according to The Times
A spokesman for the Sussexes told the newspaper Meghan was a victim of smear campaign.
The Duchess was “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” the spokesman added.
