ICYMI: The British media is accusing Meghan Markle of bullying a palace advisor. On Tuesday, the Times (via Us Weekly) reported that palace aides claim that one of Meghan's former advisors filed a bullying complaint against her when she and Prince Harry were living in Kensington Palace. These allegations came out days before Meghan and Harry's sit-down interview with Oprah, which seems like great timing for a certain family who seems to have a vendetta against Meghan and will do everything in their power to try and make her look bad.

Meghan's rep issued the following statement to royal reporter Omid Scobie in response to the recent accusations:

“The Duchess is saddened by this latest 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.”

Meghan and Harry's team also denied the allegations in a statement to the Times: “Let’s just call this what it is — a calculated smear campaign based on misleading and harmful misinformation. We are disappointed to see this defamatory portrayal of The Duchess of Sussex given credibility by a media outlet.”

The statement continued, “It’s no coincidence that distorted several-year-old accusations aimed at undermining The Duchess are being briefed to the British media shortly before she and The Duke are due to speak openly and honestly about their experience of recent years."

A new clip was recently released ahead of the interview. In it, Meghan says the royal family perpetuated "falsehoods" about her and Harry.
