Megan Markle says Royal Family “Perpetuating Falsehoods” After Staff Bullying Allegations

In a promo for an upcoming interview for Oprah Winfrey’s exclusive interview with ex-working royals Megan Markle and Prince Harry, the Duchess of Sussex claims “The Firm” has been “perpetuating falsehoods” about the couple. 

When asked how she felt about the Buckingham Palace hearing her speak her truth in the interview, Markle replied, “I don’t know how they could expect that after all of this time, we would still just be silent if there is an active role that The Firm is playing in perpetuating falsehoods about us.”

Prince Philip reportedly coined the term “The Firm,” to describe the businesslike nature of the royal family. Though they are thought to use the term internally, none of the other members have ever referred to the royal family using the stark label. 

“If that comes with the risk of losing things … there’s a lot that’s been lost already,” she concluded. The solemn words come in the wake of recent accusations from the British press that Markle bullied palace aides when she and Prince Harry were active members of the royal family.  

The Firm didn’t stand by Markle after the allegations surfaced. “We are clearly very concerned about allegations in The Times following claims made by former staff of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex,” Buckingham Palace wrote in a statement.  “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.”

A spokesperson for the couple had a very direct retort.  “Let’s just call this what it is – a calculated smear campaign based on misleading and harmful misinformation,” they said of the allegations. 

“It’s no coincidence that distorted several-year-old accusations aimed at undermining The Duchess are being briefed to the British media shortly before she and The Duke are due to speak openly and honestly about their experience of recent years.”

“Oprah With Meghan and Harry: A CBS Primetime Special,” has been promoted as a “no subject that’s off limits” interview, which will be the first the couple has given since resigning from royal service in February.

I was going to say something, but you said it all! For someone who claims to hate the press so much, she sure sucks up to them when it suits her.

Poor Harry…..

They could have done so much and gone to Africa and other locations for charity work. The world was looking forward to their life adventures. Too bad they did not stay and figured out how to work around their differences.

Markle’s a California liberal that believes, like most overpaid acting CA residents, she’s better than everyone else. Especially servants!!!

Meghan and Harry are living in an alternate universe. They are constantly seeking public attention and then complain when the press responds! Duh….? Doing an interview with Oprah certainly will not be private! It’s all like a soap opera and Meghan wants to be the star ! And who really cares here in the US. ?? Like Edward, Harry is really giving up his hertiage, and his brother. Like PM Churchill said about Edward, “never has one man given up so much for so little “ or something close to that.
I doubt Princess Diana would approve. I wish them well and also wish they would just go away!

Working royal? What’s that ? To them a “job” is showing up someplace with an expensive dress or a uniform, enjoying fine food and drink! Sounds tough.

The Queen has never blessed any of this or thought that it was ok for her grandson to marry this opportunist.
Of course, for optics, they all said it was great. NOT! I think eventually the royals will be a thing of the past. Nobody cares.
They should of stayed in Canada.

Why does Prince Charles keep sending money to this freaky couple? Millions of dollars per year. Meanwhile, all the gold digger and sucky boy do is trash the Royal Family and England. I haven’t read anything lately about them. I thought they were gone for good, but no such luck.
