Buckingham Palace staff furious as Meghan Markle bullying probe 'buried' after duchess caused 'real stress and trauma' | The Sun

BUCKINGHAM Palace staff are reportedly FURIOUS that the probe into Meghan Markle's alleged bullying has been "buried", after the Duchess caused "real stress and trauma".

The inquiry into allegations that Meghan bullied her staff will never be published – and participants are fuming.

Some are said to be "deeply disappointed", feeling like the report has been "buried", according to The Times.

And some claim they were never informed that the inquiry had finished recently, let alone what the results were.

Accusations that the Duchess had driven two personal assistants out of her household surfaced last year – just days before Meghan, 39, and Harry, 36, gave their “shocking” and “tell-all” interview to Oprah Winfrey on US telly.

The Duchess of Sussex has vehemently denied any form of wrongdoing, while royal insiders claimed she caused "real stress and trauma" because of her behaviour.

Although the results of the inquiry are top secret, the investigation did lead to changes in Buckingham Palace.

Royal sources said the palace made adjustments "improving the policies and procedures" in its HR department.

The findings have been kept hush-hush to protect the privacy of those involved and to limit tensions between the Sussexes and the palace.

Courtiers insisted the inquiry should “not be played out in public” to make sure all participants were “comfortable”.

It's also understood that Buckingham Palace has no plans to make any public statement on the inquiry, or even publicly acknowledge the resulting changes to its HR policies.

One royal source told the paper last tear: “The actual worst incidences haven’t come out. There are some harrowing stories to tell.”

It is understood the report was paid for privately by the Queen and conducted by an independent law firm.

The inquiry launched after an email from Meghan's former press secretary, sent in October 2018 and later leaked to The Times, cast doubt on her behaviour.

Jason Knauf wrote he was "very concerned" that Meghan "was able to bully two PAs out of the household".

He described her alleged behaviour as “totally unacceptable”, adding that “the Duchess seems intent on always having someone in her sights [and] I remain concerned that nothing will be done”.

A pair of senior staff members also claimed to have been bullied by Meghan early last year.

Another former aide complained they had been personally "humiliated" by the duchess.

In addition, it's believed Meghan’s former PA, Melissa Touabti, was involved in the investigation.

She left Kensington Palace six months after Harry and Meghan’s wedding, reportedly “traumatised” by her experience.

Meghan's legal team completely denied the serious accusations and her representatives said she was a victim of a "smear campaign" by aides.

Her lawyer later appeared on an episode of the BBC’s controversial documentary The Princes And The Press to speak out about the incident.

Asked if Meghan was a bully, Jenny Afia, of firm Schillings, replied: "Absolutely not."
