An official statement has been released by Buckingham Palace in response to bullying claims against Meghan Markle.

The statement comes after The Times reported that the Duchess of Sussex was subject of a bullying complaint by a former staffer.

Buckingham Palace says they will be investigating the claims. “We are clearly very concerned about the allegations in The Times following claims made by former staff of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex,” the statement read.

“Accordingly our HR team will look into the circumstances outlined in the article. Members of staff involved at the time, including those who have left the Household, will be invited to participate to see if lessons can be learned.

The Palace goes on to say it does not tolerate workplace bullying. “The Royal Household has had a Dignity at Work policy in place for a number of years and does not and will not tolerate bullying or harassment in the workplace.”

Following The Times article, a spokesperson for Meghan called the claims an “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.

“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.”

The reports come days before the highly-anticipated Oprah interview with Meghan and Harry. The 90-minute special will be airing on Sunday, 7 March.
