After anonymous allegations that Meghan Markle bullied royal helpers, those close by The pregnant queen reportedly said she was expecting a fight after opting for a full interview with Oprah Winfrey.

On Tuesday March 2, the Times published two articles quoting unnamed sources alleging Meghan bullied royal employees and evicted two assistants from the palace for their alleged conduct.

In response, Buckingham Palace released a statement on Wednesday March 3, announcing that its HR team would investigate the reported incidents, which allegedly occurred about two and a half years ago.

“We are clearly very concerned about the allegations in the Times following allegations by former employees of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex,” Buckingham Palace said in the statement. “Staff involved at the time, including those who have left the household, are invited to attend to see if lessons can be learned. The royal household has and has not implemented a dignity at work policy for a number of years . ” and does not tolerate workplace bullying or harassment. “
