Royal Family latest news – Meghan Markle wants ‘brutal showdown’ with palace as 10 staff ‘queue up’ over bullying claims


MEGHAN Markle is heading for a “brutal showdown” with Buckingham Palace over claims she bullied staff during her time as a royal, it has been reported.

The Duchess of Sussex, 39, will reportedly issue a “point by point” rebuttal of the allegations by demanding the Palace hands over a detailed breakdown of the claims.

Meghan is yet to be formally interviewed over claims she created a “toxic” work environment while at Kensington Palace, sources told The Mirror.

Those close to Meghan have suggested the two sides are heading for a “brutal showdown”, after two senior members of staff claimed they were bullied by Meghan during her time at the Palace.

And a source told the newspaper “at least 10” former palace staffers are “queuing up” to assist an independent inquiry looking into the claims, adding: “The feeling is this is heading for a brutal showdown between the Palace and the Duchess of Sussex who is understood to be disputing all allegations labelled against her.

“The Palace is taking each and every allegation very seriously and wants to get to the truth of the matter and ensure those speaking up deserve to be heard. But Meghan is adamant the staff were not up to their job and could not deal with the pressure of working for her and understanding how she wanted things to run.”
