Meghan Markle, 39, could face a new confrontation with the Buckingham Palace to deny the harassment accusations against him that he received from some of his former employees. According to new reports, the Duchess of Sussex, wife of the prince harry, has demanded a point-by-point breakdown of the accusations that tarnish his reputation and image in the world.
A source close to the independent investigation, The Mirror reported, noted that Meghan is “convinced that the staff were not up to the job.” This entire move comes after a high-ranking palace aide accused the duchess of “unacceptable behavior” toward two personal assistants and undermining the trust of a third.
The palace commissioned an investigation into the claims to an external independent legal firm. Meghan previously called the series of accusations “a smear campaign.” Meanwhile, a senior palace source confirmed in March that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s office had “written to request” all documents, emails or text messages.
“The feeling is that this is heading into a brutal confrontation between the Duchess of Sussex, who is understood to be contesting all the accusations labeled against her,” a source close to the investigation told The Mirror of the UK. “The palace is taking each and every accusation very seriously and wants to get to the truth of the matter and make sure those who speak deserve to be heard,” he added.
The source continued: “But Meghan is convinced that the staff weren’t up to the job and couldn’t deal with the pressure of working for her and understanding how she wanted things to work out.” In October 2018, Jason Knauf, the then press secretary of the couple, wrote an email sent to Simon Case, then Prince William’s private secretary, saying: ‘I am very concerned that the Duchess may have intimidated two assistants at the home for the past year.
