According to a new book on the royal family, Prince William consoled a royal employee who had received harsh words from his sister-in-law Meghan Markle.
Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry moved into Kensington Palace after their May 2018 wedding, and a new book by Times of London royal writer Valentine Low has a number of salacious charges to make regarding the duchess’s relationship with the palace employees.
In his book “Courtiers: The Hidden Power Behind the Crown,” Low alleged that a member of the royal staff told him In one meeting, Markle “spoke very harshly to a young female member of the team in front of her colleagues,” as reported by The Times. IBT was unable to independently confirm the book’s allegations.
The staff member informed Markle it would be difficult to implement a new strategy after the former “Suits” star “ripped to tears” a plan that the aide had written up, as Low described.
“Don’t worry,” Meghan reportedly reassured her. ‘If there was literally anyone else I could ask to do this, I would be asking them instead of you,'” Low’s book stated.
The royal correspondent, who has covered the royal family for almost two decades, claims that Prince William intervened in the situation.
The story goes that “after, Prince William, hearing of some of the treatment to which she had been subjected, came to find the woman. He said to her, “I hope you’re OK.” Good work; keep it up! “She suddenly began crying,” the book excerpt said.
The book also claims that one Friday night during dinner, Markle constantly called an aide whom she thought had let her down on a subject that was causing her stress.
It was once a minute that I had to step outside to hear her and Harry yelling at me. It was something along the lines of, “I can’t believe you’ve done this. I was counting on you, and you came through with nothing. We’re baffled by your logic. The unnamed employee claimed to Low that the incident lasted for “a couple of hours.”
It was reported that Markle contacted the aide “for days” after that initial call.
As the saying goes, “There was no way to get away from them. The employee asserted that because it was the wee hours of the morning and night, there were no limits or restrictions.
Meghan Markle has stayed mum about the book’s allegations. Her lawyers have previously called the charges against her and Prince Harry’s time as a working royal a “planned smear campaign,” but she has always disputed the allegations.
These rumors began circulating last year, before the duchess and Prince Harry’s explosive encounter with Oprah Winfrey aired.
This prompted an inquiry into the claims at the time by Buckingham Palace. The investigation was completed early this year, but the palace said it would not release the results.
Royal correspondents Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand stated in their biography of the Duchess of Sussex, “Finding Freedom,” that two of the affected employees “rescinded” their bullying charges against Markle.
The authors also cited an unnamed friend of Markle’s who said the media seemed determined to find something negative to say about the Duchess of Sussex.
Someone close to her said, “She’s the easiest person in the world to work with.” Some people don’t appreciate her uniqueness, and that bothers them.
As Markle’s attorney Jenny Afia stated in the BBC documentary “The Princes and the Press,” which focused on Princes William and Harry, “this narrative that no one could work for the Duchess of Sussex, that she was too difficult or demanding a boss, and that everyone had to quit is absolutely not accurate.”
