Meghan Markle ‘refused to engage with junior staff’ at Kensington Palace – new claim

855

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry stepped down from their roles in March 2020, but were accused of “bullying” Palace staff following their departure.

Relations between Meghan and the team at Kensington Palace were said to be unravelling as a senior aide reportedly raised their concerns with the couple directly following their engagement in 2017.

The senior aide was said to have spoken to the couple about the difficulties raised following their treatment of some staff members.

Meghan was said to have replied “it’s not my job to coddle people” when approached by the unknown aide.

According to reports, the Duchess was not a fan of engaging with junior members of staff.

Policies for staff working for the Royal Family have changed in wake of bullying allegations made against the Duchess, according to a senior palace source.

The source told Hello Magazine: “I’m not going to comment on the changes that have been made to the policies and procedures – I’ll just say that the policies and procedures have been updated… the policies in relation to the Concern at Work apply to everyone who works within the royal household.

“Because of the confidentiality of the discussions we have not communicated the detailed recommendations. The recommendations have been incorporated within policies and procedures wherever appropriate and policies and procedures have changed.”

Buckingham Palace launched the investigation in 2021 as it asked past and present staff to speak of their experiences with Meghan.Meghan and Harry

It was alleged that Meghan drove out two personal assistants and staff were “humiliated” on more than one occasion. The Duchess’ lawyers denied the allegations.

In the spring of 2017, more than six months before the couple were engaged, Meghan reportedly told one of Harry’s advisers: “I think we both know I’m going to be one of your bosses soon.”

But after Buckingham Palace refused to publish the report looking into bullying claims, some took it that Meghan’s name had been cleared.

“Meghan is a fair boss and never bullied anyone who worked for her at the Palace in the first place. She’s happy that her name has been cleared from the defamatory claims,” a source told Us Weekly.

With Meghan and Harry already back in California following their return to the UK, Brits are waiting to see when Meghan will release her next Spotify podcast episode.

And Prince Harry is still expected to publish his memoir later this year, which could see more bombshell claims made.

The royal couple were last seen boarding a plane to reunite with their children, Archie and Lilibet.

Archewell have been approached for comment.
