After the broadcast of a documentary on the BBC accusing Meghan Markle of bullying staff, her lawyer Jenny Afia has stepped up to defend the wife of Prince Harry.
These are comments that the mother of Archie and Lilibet Diana could not let pass. They were made in the second episode of the controversial BBC documentary The Princess and the Press. In the program, presented by Amol Rajan, Times royal correspondent Valentine Low revealed that she knows people who accuse Meghan Markle of bullying. She claims that two and a half years after the fact, “some of them were still in tears.” “They were severely psychologically traumatized. So something went wrong,” she told British television. But the defendant’s lawyer doesn’t see it that way.
“There were huge inaccuracies in this story,” denounced Jenny Afia, of the Schillings law firm in comments relayed by The Sun on Tuesday, November 30. “It is difficult to prove that it is false,” however, recognized the lawyer of Meghan Markle. “If you have not bullied someone, how do you show that you have not?” she questioned. When asked, “Is Meghan a bully?” the principal’s lawyer unsurprisingly replied, “Absolutely not.” “What bullying really means is using power inappropriately to hurt someone emotionally or physically. The Duchess has absolutely denied doing that,” added Jenny Afia.
Alleged facts from 2018
Perhaps there was a difference between the staff and the Duchess of Sussex this point of view, which does not exclude Meghan Markle who wants to show that she respects the feelings of these alleged victims that she has not, however, felt to have harassed. “She would not want to deny anyone’s experiences,” indeed, her lawyer told The Sun. The tabloid recalls that it had already revealed in March that an investigation had been opened by Kensington Palace. It was after a 16-day trip to Australia in 2018 that would have been marked by a series of conflicting episodes between the wife of Prince Harry and his team that the accusations of bullying would have emerged.
