Meghan Markle says she knows what it’s like to experience bullying, but denies dishing it out … something Kensington Palace staff have accused her of doing.
According to a spokesperson for Meghan and Prince Harry … “The Duchess is saddened by this latest attack on her character, particularly as someone who has been the target of bullying herself.”
The spokesperson says Meghan’s “deeply committed to supporting those who have experienced pain and trauma” and is “determined to continue her work building compassion around the world and will keep striving to set an example for doing what is right and doing what is good.”
All this comes in response to UK reports Tuesday the Duchess faced a bullying complaint in October 2018 — made by her former communications secretary, Jason Knauf.
Meghan allegedly drove 2 personal assistants out of her household with her treatment, undermined the confidence of another worker and would occasionally reduce staff to tears … according to the reports.
The timing of the claims is interesting, for sure — Meghan and Harry’s potentially explosive sit-down interview with Oprah about dealing with the Royal Family and the British media is just days away from airing.
The Duke and Duchess also recently made it official they will not be returning to their roles as senior royals after stepping back from their duties last year.
