British royal family news shows that Meghan Markle aka Princess Pinocchio is the subject of an ongoing investigation into her reported bullying of palace aides.
Now comes news that one of her former aides allegedly involved in the bullying incident has provided a witness statement against her to a U.K. media outlet.
Meghan Markle Has a Lawsuit
As we all know Meghan the Duchess of Sussex has a lawsuit going against the Mail on Sunday for breach of privacy. After winning a minor victory in February she crowed that she had won against the newspaper’s, “illegal and dehumanizing practices,” e.g. journalism.
The case is far from over and now the Mail on Sunday wants the Court of Appeal in London to allow as evidence a witness statement from her former communications secretary Jason Knauf.
Knauf wrote an email in 2018, “accusing Meghan of bullying two PAs out of Kensington Palace and expressing concern for a third staff member,” according to Newsweek.
Of course her lawyers don’t want that bit of evidence revealed and argued it would violate her privacy.
Meghan Markle Wants to Control Evidence
But it’s alleged that Knauf’s email sheds light on, “an issue that Prince Harry has previously said left Meghan crying into her pillow.” Funny that she would turn to her pillow for comfort, versus her husband, but different strokes for different folks?
Knauf’s email was leaked to U.K. newspaper The Times and published days before they clacked to Oprah Winfrey about how terrible their lives of privilege were while having to live in the castle and be waited on hand and foot while relaying on the taxpayers to fund their lifestyle.
Here’s what could be the smoking gun: “The Mail on Sunday’s lawyers said that Knauf’s evidence will contradict Meghan’s if the judges allow it to be admitted.”
A court filing seen by Newsweek reads: “If permission is granted by the Court of Appeal to introduce Mr Knauf’s recent witness statement, [The Mail on Sunday] will rely on it as evidence that [Meghan] considered it at least a serious possibility that the letter would be made public by her father and crafted the letter with that possibility specifically in mind.”
Knauf’s email read in part: “I am very concerned that the duchess was able to bully two PAs out of the household in the past year. “The treatment of X [name removed] was totally unacceptable.”
“The Duchess seems intent on always having someone in her sights. She is bullying Y [name removed] and seeking to undermine her confidence. We have had report after report from people who have witnessed unacceptable behavior towards Y [name removed].”
Meghan Markle the Duchess of Sussex would never, ever bully anyone—right?
