Meghan Markle’s friends are here to the rescue!
Two days ago, The Times released an article stating that Meghan allegedly bullied her staffers and royal aides. Upon hearing the news, many of her friends are speaking out to defend the Duchess of Sussex. Among them are Jameela Jamil, Lindsay Roth, and Jon Cowan.
Meanwhile, Buckingham Palace issued a statement that they will be investigating the said allegation which took place around two years ago.
On the other hand, Omid Scobie, co-author of the book Finding Freedom, which talked about the couple last year, spoke to some of Meghan’s friends who remained anonymous. One of them said that the couple knew that things would get ugly days before their interview with Oprah Winfrey. The friend mentioned that the allegations are meant to destroy her character.
Based on a teaser released by CBS ahead of the couple’s interview on Sunday, March 7, Meghan claimed that the Palace had been spreading lies about her and her husband throughout their relationship.
Here are some of her friends’ reactions regarding the report:
The producer and author took to Instagram on March 4 and posted, “Meg’s M.O. has always been kindness; goodwill runs in her bones. I know this to be true after 22 years of very close friendship. I have seen firsthand how she treats her friends and their families, and her colleagues. “
“If she’s driving with you in the passenger seat, she will fling her right arm in front of you at the slightest bump in a gesture of love to ensure your safety. If you have a specific goal, she will help you get there, and your passions will become hers on your behalf. If you ever have the pleasure of meeting Meg – and I hope more of you do – you will see the altruistic, magnanimous friend who I am so lucky to have in my corner. ”
“She’s funny. Like, laugh out loud funny. And smart. She’s more than just a cover story.”
“She was this woman when we were students together at Northwestern University; she was this woman in Los Angeles when her days were spent auditioning; she was this woman living in Toronto as Rachel Zane on Suits; she was this woman before you knew she was dating Harry; she was this woman after you knew was dating Harry; she was this woman when she became Duchess of Sussex and she is still – without a doubt – this very same woman today.”
The Good Place star and Golden Globe winner wrote on Twitter, “So lemme just get this straight. The palace were fine with all of Meghan’s ‘bullying’ for years and years until a few days before they fear she may out them publicly. Seems like a legit claim…”
So lemme just get this straight. The palace were fine with all of Meghan’s “bullying” for years and years until a few days before they fear she may out them publicly. Seems like a legit claim. Maybe Andrew didn’t go to Pedo island with Epstein, maybe it was MEGHAN DRESSED AS HIM!— Jameela Jamil 🌈 (@jameelajamil) March 4, 2021
“IF THIS IS WHAT THE ROYAL FAMILY IS COMFORTABLE DOING TO A HEAVILY PREGNANT WOMAN PUBLICLY…. can we even IMAGINE what they put her through privately? They seem terrified. Her interview hasn’t even aired yet. What are they covering up? The stench of their desperation is rotten.”
Cowan worked with Meghan on Suits. He tweeted, “It’s also possible the Duchess of Sussex is a good person thrust into an unimaginable world. Having spent 3 years working with her in her pre-Duchess days, I saw a warm, kind, caring person. I know nothing of her current situation but she gets the benefit of the doubt in my book.”
