Meghan Markle’s lawyer denies bullying claims as BBC document accuses her of causing staff ‘severe psychological trauma’

Lawyers for MEGHAN Markle were protested tonight when it was alleged that the Duchess of Sussex had bullied staff and left them “severely traumatized”.

The second episode of BBC’s controversial documentary The Princes And The Press focuses on how Harry and Meghan left the Royal Family, with The Sun’s explosive Megxit revealed a lot of content.

The Times royal correspondent Valentine Low, who broke the story of the bullying claims, told presenter Amol Rajan: “These people, I know, two and a half years later, when I wrote the sentence. this – some of them were in tears.

“They are still traumatized. So something bad happened.”

But Meghan’s lawyer Jenny Afia, of the firm Schillings, replied: “There’s a lot of inaccuracies in that story.”

She added: “It’s hard to prove a negative. If you’ve never bullied someone, how do you prove you’ve never been bullied? ”

When asked if Meghan was a bully, she said: “Absolutely not.”

“Actually, bullying means using power inappropriately to hurt someone mentally or physically.

“The Duchess has completely denied doing so.”

She added: “That said she wouldn’t want to deny anyone’s personal experience.”

The Sun revealed in March that Meghan’s bullying claims were being investigated internally at Kensington Palace with a focus on the royal tour of Australia.

The 16-day trip in 2018 is said to have led to a series of clashes between Meghan and her staff.

‘SUSSEXIT’

The BBC changed the title of the documentary last night from “Megxit”, a term Prince Harry has called sexist, to “Sussexit”.

The BBC was also set to release a five-part podcast yesterday, exploring the royals’ relationship with the Press, but it was mysteriously delayed to the eleventh hour.

“The podcast is still in production,” Beeb said.

At the end of tonight’s programme, a statement from The Palace said: “A free, responsible and open press is vital to a healthy democracy.

“However, excessive and baseless claims from unnamed sources are often presented as fact and it is disappointing that anyone, including the BBC, gives them credence.”

The BBC Two documentary last week aired “baseless” allegations that William and his staff had briefed the media against Meghan and Harry.

Omid Scobie, author of a sympathetic biography of Meghan and Harry, has claimed that “negative stories” have been leaked about the duchess to “put her in her place”.

No evidence was provided and he was not challenged on presenter Amol Rajan’s allegations.

The palace is also angry that Meghan has arranged for her lawyer to appear and answer questions on her behalf.
