Buckingham Palace is denying that it orchestrated a “calculated smear campaign” of Meghan Markle ahead of her and Prince Harry‘s interview with Oprah Winfrey, set to drop on CBS this Sunday. Furthermore, it is opening an investigation into the allegations.
In a statement issued by the Palace Wednesday, they said: “We are clearly very concerned about allegations in The Times following claims made by former staff of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Accordingly our HR team will look into the circumstances outlined in the article.”
“Members of staff involved at the time, including those who have left the Household, will be invited to participate to see if lessons can be learned,” the statement continued. “The Royal Household has had a Dignity at Work policy in place for a number of years and does not and will not tolerate bullying or harassment in the workplace.”
