Meghan Markle, the alleged “bullier” is making headlines again as new emails reveal details about the ex-working royals’ treatment of Kensington Palace staff from late 2017 to early 2020.

The news comes after the Duchess and Prince Harry’s ex-private secretary, Samantha Cohen, revealed she was interviewed as part of the palace’s investigation into the claims of torment.

The Duke and Duchess of Sus𝓈ℯ𝓍’s March 2021 interview with Oprah Winfrey was said to have ‘spurned on’ the bullying investigation.

Harry and Meghan’s former communications secretary, Jason Knauf, first complained about “abuse allegations” against the ex-Suits star not long after she became a royal duchess in May 2018.

Newly leaked emails about the investigations revealed that Knauf highlighted two members of KP’s staff were “bullied out of the household,” presumably by Meghan, who was then “targeting female members of staff,” with one of these aides saying the thought of coming into a day’s work with Meghan made her “feel sick” physically.

Both Meghan and Prince Harry have vehemently denied the allegations, and “especially double-downed” when Prince William formally approved the investigation after their Oprah interview in March 2021.

Cohen worked as a press advisor to the late Queen Elizabeth II for 17 years before being personally asked by the monarch to become Harry and Meghan’s private secretary in June 2018. “I was only supposed to stay for six months but stayed for 18 — we couldn’t find a replacement for me and when we did, we took them on tour to Africa with Harry and Meghan to show them the ropes, but they left as well while in Africa,” she revealed to an outlet.

Royal author Valentine Low went on to write in his book, Courtiers: The Hidden Power Behind the Crown, that Cohen felt that she had been “treated harshly” by the Duke and Duchess of Sus𝓈ℯ𝓍, and told others the job was “like working with teenagers.”

Resigning around the time of the future Montecito residents’ trip to Africa during the autumn of 2019 is “telling,” according to a royal insider.

Cohen also spoke about her time with Elizabeth II and stated: “The Queen [Elizabeth] had no ego, she was so comfortable in herself, yet she loved it when things went wrong. If a cake was not cutting, or a plaque didn’t unveil, because everything was so perfectly organized, it spiced her life up when things went wrong.”

Writing for Daily Mail, royal expert Tom Bower revealed: “Jason Knauf’s leaked email correspondence has given us a starting point, but until a few days ago, Ms Cohen and fellow palace staff had remained silent. Now, finally, that dam has been breached — and I have no doubt that more will now emerge. The trickle of information will, soon enough, become a stream.”
