The tea towel is burning between Buckingham Palace and Meghan Markle.
The Duchess of Sussex suggested that the royal palace was “peddling lies” about her and Prince Harry, according to an excerpt from an interview with Oprah Winfrey that aired on Wednesday, March 3, on CBS.
When asked what she imagines Buckingham Palace thinks of her statements, Meghan Markle replied: “I don’t know how they would expect us to simply remain silent after all this time, if the Firm is playing an active role in peddling lies about us”.
The “Times” “used to peddle a totally false story”.
The interview was recorded before the British newspaper The Times published allegations Wednesday that Meghan Markle had been the subject of a harassment complaint while living at Kensington Palace. Buckingham Palace said it was “very concerned” about the accusations, made by former employees of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
“Staff members involved at the time, including those who left the Royal House, will be invited to participate to see if any lessons can be learned,” the palace continued, stressing that it “does not and will not tolerate harassment in the workplace. The Times reported Wednesday that a complaint of harassment against assistants was filed in October 2018 by Jason Knauf, then communications secretary to Harry and Meghan.
The couple’s lawyers had told the Times that the newspaper was “being used by Buckingham Palace to peddle a completely false story” before the interview of Harry and Meghan was broadcast by American television star Oprah Winfrey.
