Meghan Markle ‘phoned every 10 minutes’ and ‘screamed’ at staffer out for dinner – claim


The calls continued “for days”, the member of staff reported.

Valentine Low, author of Courtiers: The Hidden Power Behind the Crown, spoke to members of the royal household about the couple’s relationship with their staff.

In an extract from the book, published in The Times, one worker was quoted saying: “Every 10 minutes I had to go outside to be screamed at by her [Meghan] and Harry”.

The worker recalled the conversation, saying: “It was ‘I can’t believe you’ve done this. You’ve let me down. What were you thinking?'”.

The claim is the dialogue continued over a number of hours.

Reportedly the calls went on for days at all times of the day and night.

It comes as further problems were reported between the couple and the Queen’s long-established dresser, Angela Kelly.

Prior to her wedding to Harry, the Duchess had been told the Queen would lend her a tiara for the big day, as she had done for Kate during her wedding to Prince William.

This meant Meghan wasn’t given an opportunity to rehearse with the tiara before the day of the wedding and this, in Harry’s view, was Ms Kelly being obstructive, the book claimed.

Angela Kelly reportedly ignored repeated requests from Kensington Palace to arrange a date for the hair trial, according to Sussex’s unofficial biography Finding Freedom: Harry and Meghan and the Making of A Modern Royal Family.

Author Omid Scobie wrote: “Nothing could convince Harry that some of the old guard at the palace simply didn’t like Meghan and would stop at nothing to make her life difficult.”

It comes after Meghan was previously accused of bullying staff members during her time as a working royal, which she had always denied.

Following the complaints, the Palace confirmed it had launched a private investigation but had chosen not to make the findings public. has contacted the couple’s Archewell Foundation for comment.
