The highly anticipated tell-all Oprah Winfrey interview hasn’t even aired yet, but Meghan Markle has already come under fire – this time for allegedly “bullying” some of the members of staff at Kensington Palace.

What are you looking for?

According to The Times, one of Meghan's former advisors filed a bullying complaint against her back in 2018, while she was still living in Kensington Palace. This has only recently come to light, just days before the tell-all interview is due to be broadcast…

The initial accusation reportedly came from Jason Knauf, who worked as communications secretary to Harry and Meghan while they were still working as senior royals.

He allegedly made the bullying complaint after learning that Meghan “drove two personal assistants out of the household and was undermining the confidence of a third staff member”.

As you can imagine, Meghan Markle – who is currently pregnant with her second child – and her team haven’t taken lightly to the bullying accusations. Especially as she has been bullied so much herself

"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,” read a statement from a spokesperson for The Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

"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."

According to E! News, Meghan and Harry's lawyers reportedly said that The Times was "being used by Buckingham Palace to peddle a wholly false narrative" before their Oprah interview airs on March 7.

“Let’s just call this what it is — a calculated smear campaign based on misleading and harmful misinformation,” read another statement by Harry and Meghan’s team.

“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."

The timing of the allegations seems to be very suspicious, does it not? Either way, we can’t wait to hear to what Harry and Meghan have to tell Oprah! We’re counting down the days!
