While Buckingham Palace said it would refrain from commenting on the interview, just a day prior to the interview release, the Times reported that Buckingham Palace had launched an investigation into claims from former staff that the Duchess of Sussex had “bullied” members of its staff.
Meghan has denied such claims, with the Sussexes blaming the Palace on the report, saying they are simply “using” the publication to “peddle a wholly false narrative,” and that it was a “calculated smear campaign.”
For those who are deeply invested in the turmoil that is now unfolding within the Royal Family, this news is both shocking and wholly unsurprising. For those who are against Meghan Markle, such claims need to be investigated with the Duchess held accountable. But most see that these claims were made months ago, and that the Royal Family is only now bringing it up as a result of the interview. The fact that the Royal Family is speaking about this, but remained infamously mute on the Prince Andrew scandal is both disappointing and telling.
Not surprisingly, many high profile names have taken to social media to express their support for the couple. Here are their Twitter reactions below.
