Meghan’s lawyer denies ‘bullying’ claims amid allegations staff were ‘traumatised’

A lawyer for Meghan Markle has denied claims she “bullied” royal staff, the latest news reveals.

Jenny Afia, Meghan’s legal representative, has spoken out over claims made in the controversial documentary, The Princes and the Press.

The episode this week, which focused on Prince Harry and Meghan quitting the Royal Family, featured The Times’ royal correspondent Valentine Low.

Mr. Low told presenter Amol Rajan: “These people, I know, two and a half years later, when I’m writing this story — some of them were in tears.

“They were still severely psychologically traumatized. So, something went badly wrong.”

However, lawyer Jenny Afia, of legal firm Schillings, said in the documentary: “There were massive inaccuracies in that story.”

She added: “It’s hard to prove a negative. If you haven’t bullied someone, how do you show you haven’t?” She also replied “absolutely not,” when pushed by the presenter on whether or not Meghan ‘bullied’ staff.

Last week the Royal Family put out a rare statement about the BBC Two documentary.

There were massive inaccuracies in that story.

The first episode – titled The New Generation – followed the years after the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

It also covered Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s engagement and marriage. In addition, a number of royal experts from Omid Scobie to Camilla Tominey appeared.

Following the episode, a statement from the royal family aired on-screen. It read: “A free, responsible, and open press is of vital importance to a healthy democracy.

“However, too often it is overblown and unfounded claims from unnamed sources that are presented as facts and it is disappointing when anyone, including the BBC, gives them credibility.”
