Buckingham Palace has hired a law firm to look into claims that Meghan Markle bullied royal staffers, according to multiple reports. The allegations were made in a lead-up to Meghan and Prince Harry‘s blockbuster interview with Oprah Winfrey. At the time, she dismissed it as a “smear campaign.”
A spokesman for Buckingham Palace said on Monday: “Our commitment to look into the circumstances around allegations from former staff of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex is being taken forward but we will not be providing a public commentary on it.”
Observers point out that the Palace’s aggressive probe differs from its response to Meghan’s claims of racism in the interview with Oprah.
