Buckingham Palace has decided to not release Meghan Markle’s bullying report findings.
She believes there is enough controversy around Harry and Meghan as a result of their separation from the royal family, which is why the Duchess of Sussex’s bullying investigation will be handled in private, according to a recent Daily Mail report.
After the Times published an article alleging that the Duchess of Sussex had been accused of bullying members of the royal staff, the Queen declared last year that an investigation had been launched. Before the Duke and Duchess of Sussex moved to California in early 2020, the complaints made by the staff occurred during a “toxic period.”
According to Marie Clarie reports, royal assistants felt humiliated, ill, horrified, and so shaken with fright that they started crying. One person even referred to the Sussexes as “outrageous bullies” after Meghan was accused of committing emotional cruelty to her staff.
These accusations have been vehemently denied by Meghan, who described the Times article as the result of a “calculated smear campaign.”
The Sussexes released a statement: “Let’s just call this what it is — a calculated smear campaign based on misleading and harmful misinformation. We are disappointed to see this defamatory portrayal of The Duchess of Sussex given credibility by a media outlet.
It’s no coincidence that distorted several-year-old accusations aimed at undermining The Duchess are being briefed to the British media shortly before she and The Duke are due to speak openly and honestly about their experience of recent years.”
They added: “The Duchess is 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.
She 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.”
