On March 7, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's no holds barred interview with Oprah Winfrey titled Oprah with Meghan and Harry: A CBS Primetime Special will be airing on CBS and all eyes will be glued to their screens as The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will discuss controversial topics associated with them, especially their royal family exit. However, just days before the interview is scheduled to air, The Times published a report stacked bullying allegations against Meghan.

According to the report, Harry and Meghan's former communications secretary Jason Knauf had claimed in a complaint, made in October 2018, that two personal assistants were driven out of the household by Markle while also undermining a third staff member's confidence. The complaint was said to be submitted by Knauf in order to protect palace staffers who were allegedly bullied by Meghan and were reportedly reduced to tears at times. One royal aide, in particular, is said to have told their colleague that they couldn't stop shaking as they anticipated a confrontation with Markle.

Strongly refuting the bullying allegations by one of Markle's close advisers, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's spokesperson stated to People, "The Duchess is saddened by this latest attack on her character, particularly as someone who has been the target of bullying herself and is deeply committed to supporting those who have experienced pain and trauma," before adding, "She is determined to continue her work building compassion around the world and will keep striving to set an example for doing what is right and doing what is good."

One observer pondered to People about the "timing" of The Times' report, which is just days before Harry and Meghan's highly-awaited tell-all chat with Oprah. The whole thing has reminded the observer of the old rugby saying: 'Get your retaliation in first.'

There is two sides to every story, and Meghan's side is more credible! People's hate is just coming out of their pores because Harry chose her and left his country to find happiness! They didn't step down forever, only stepped away to breath a little bit and focus on their new baby. But people just don't want to accept it and instead want to heap all kinds of nasty names on her. Yes, like you said, The fruit does not lie! Your jealousy and hate and envy is soooo obvious! She is her own person that's why she's hated, as simple as that! She's a unique piece of work in a good way! But most choose to ignore it for obvious reasons!

The proof is in the fruit. You can tell by the way she pushes people out of her way "on camera", no compassion & kindness there. What's also telling, the way she has cut-off her "black impoverish" family, the Ragland's, whilst advocating for equality, BLM & once the owner & copyrights holder of a CV that stated she was "Caucasian". I think her intelligence is the size of an almond, philanthropist will never be a job description, by the way. Also, the inability to take her own advice is inconceivable, "authentic" when she is a serial "copy cat" e.g Oprah interview she can be seen trying to emulate Diana & M.J My question, why cant she be her own person ?, can she not pave a role of her own, is it so difficult for her to do so, that she resolve to imitating " dead people", eewwww. In my honest, humble opinion she is a nasty piece of work. I'm not jealous or envious of her, please stop insulting my intelligence. I know a loser when I see one. Most people with half a brain does, so please stop. He married his moms stalker that is the top & bottom of it. THE FRUIT DOES NOT LIE. #Proud South African

I too believe the claims of bullying. I believe the staff members who left did so because Meghan was mean. Also, look how she has treated her own father. Like really. She is not innocent and sweet. No way.

Her father and half sister are no saints either and you cannot believe their false one sided narrative.

How do you know she treated her father badly? Are sure if her father himself is innocent?

I too believe the complaints. I do not believe, for one second, that she is innocent and sweet. I believe the staffers. Also, look at the way she has treated her own father. Really???

I believe the bullying claim. Meghan is a hard and horrible social climber who thinks only of herself.

AAP Meghan ke Saath bade hua ho ? Aap Ko pata hai ye sach nahi hai ? Just because you don’t agree with someone, doesn’t mean the other person is jealous or a troll. It’s called having an opinion. Look it up in the dictionary under “opinion”
