The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, recently gave an interview to Oprah Winfrey for the CBS show in which she said the Buckingham Palace could not expect her and Prince Harry to be silent if it was “perpetuating falsehoods about us”.
The Oprah Winfrey show with Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be aired on Sunday, March 7.
In one of the promos of Oprah Winfrey’s interview with the couple, Meghan had been asked how she felt about the palace hearing her “speak your truth today”.
After saying that they can no longer be expected to be silent, Meghan said,
“If that comes with risk of losing things, I mean… there is a lot that has been lost already.”
Buckingham Palace started the investigation of the claims that the duchess bullied royal staff, after her interview with Winfrey.
The interview is expected to detail Harry and Meghan’s short period as working royals together before they stepped down for a life in the US.
In the 30-second teaser clip, Winfrey asks the duchess,
“How do you feel about the palace hearing you speak your truth today?”
“I don’t know how they could expect that, after all of this time, we would still just be silent if there is an active role that The Firm is playing in perpetuating falsehoods about us.”
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex quit their roles as senior working royals in March 2020, and now live in California.
A report in the Times newspaper on Wednesday claimed the duchess faced a bullying complaint when she was a working royal.
According to the story, the complaint was made in October 2018, while the duke and duchess were living at Kensington Palace after their marriage in May of that year.
