Meghan Markle has accused the Royal Family of perpetuating falsehoods against her and Harry during an interview with Oprah Winfrey. The teaser for this interview was released just hours after Buckingham Palace launched a probe into Meghan allegedly bullying staff.
“How do you feel about the Palace hearing you speak your truth today?” Winfrey asked Markle.
“I don’t know how they could expect that after all of this time we would still just be silent if there is an active role that The Firm is playing in perpetuating falsehoods about us,” she replied. “And, if that comes with risk of losing things, there is a lot that has been lost already.”
“The Firm” is what Markle calls the Royal family.
The falsehoods Markle speaks of are not clarified in the interview as it was recorded before she was accused of “driving out” to Royal personal assistants and allegedly “shattered the confidence” of another member of staff at the Kensington palace. However, since the Royal investigation, Harry and his wife have been called “outrageous bullies”.
Queen Elizabeth reportedly launched an “unprecedented enquiry” into allegations that the couple had bullied their staff, and that Markle was “emotionally cruel” to her aides.
According to The Guardian, the affected employees have started a ‘Sussex Survivors’ Club’ after working with the couple.
