Royal POLL: Should Buckingham Palace make Meghan ‘bullying’ investigation findings public?

The palace has confirmed that a private investigation into complaints that Meghan bullied members of staff was conducted, and paid for privately by a senior royal thought to be the Queen. The Duchess of Sussex has always denied such claims that two personal assistants and staff were “humiliated”.

The review is confirmed to look at how palace staff had handled the complaints rather than the allegations themselves.

Since the review, improved HR policies for staff have been introduced but details of the changes have not been made public.

A senior palace source said: “Because of the confidentiality of the discussions we have not communicated the detailed recommendations.  

“The recommendations have been incorporated within policies and procedures wherever appropriate and policies and procedures have changed. 

“So all members of staff, all members of the royal family will be aware of what the policies and procedures are, the revised policies and procedures.”

The bullying investigation was launched in March 2021, and at the time the palace said any changes in policies would be shared. 

Current and former palace staff were invited to speak out on their experiences of working for Meghan. A handful of aides are alleged to have come forward.  

At a briefing on this year’s Sovereign Grant report, an annual report which was expected to include the findings, a senior palace source said there would be no public discussion of the lessons learned. 

They cited the confidentiality of those involved and said: “I’m not going to comment on the changes that have been made to the policies and procedures – I’ll just say that the policies and procedures have been updated.”

The Duchess of Sussex’s representatives have not commented on the latest developments on the investigation.

However, when the review was launched last year they rejected allegations as the “latest attack on her character”.

They said it was unfair when the duchess had been the “target of bullying herself and is deeply committed to supporting those who have experienced pain and trauma”.
