Royal Family News – Queen Doesn’t Want to Air Dirty Laundry in Public
As Nicholl explained to Entertainment Weekly on Monday, June 20, the Queen simply wants to protect the monarchy and the Royal Family from negative press. She said that what she is hearing from the Palace is that the Queen doesn’t want “any more drama.”
Basically, the Queen “doesn’t want any more dirty linens aired in public,” and subsequently made the decision to keep the complaints, lodged against Meghan Markle, private. The complaint was first reported in 2018.
Royal Family News – Where it All Began
According to a report by The Times, the Sussex’s former communications secretary, Jason Knauf, sent an email in 2018 that was later forwarded to HR which claimed that the duchess was able to bully two PAs out of the household” that year and was “seeking to undermine” yet another employee’s confidence.
A spokesperson for the Duchess of Sussex denied the allegations at the time in a statement that read, “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.”
Royal Family News – Secrecy Not Just About Protecting Feelings
In August 2021 there were new developments as a new epilogue for Carolyn Durand and Omid Scobie’s book Finding Freedom claimed that two of the people mentioned in the original complaint had asked to withdraw their complaints.
Then Buckingham Palace announced that an investigation had been launched into the matter, but the results of that inquiry were never made available publicly. The Palace also never confirmed whether any allegations had been rescinded.
Nicoll explained that it has been speculated that the hushing of the investigation was to protect those who spoke out from backlash, “to protect their privacy, to protect their anonymity,” and possibly Meghan Markle as well.
However, Nicoll explained that the quashing of the report wasn’t just about protecting feelings, but keeping the inflammatory story “under the table” to protect the Royal Family from further scandal.
