Meghan Markle’s lawyer tonight issued a technical and bizarre denial the Duchess had ever bullied staff – but then accepted ‘She wouldn’t want to negate anyone’s personal experiences.’
Schillings Jenny Afia was speaking on BBC 2’s The Princes and Press on claims she inflicted ’emotional cruelty’ on underlings and ‘drove them out’ were ‘very’ concerning.
Amol Rajan, however, claimed that there were “massive inaccuracies” in the story but did not go further.
Instead, she came up with her technical explanation about bullying.
She said, “Massive and massive innacuracies” in the story.
“The Duchess was accused of bullying. It is not.
“I believe the most important thing to do is be clear on what bullying means.
Bullying is the misuse of power repeatedly or deliberately in order to harm someone emotionally or physically.
‘The Duchess of Sussex has absolutely denied doing that, that said she wouldn’t want to negate anyone’s personal experiences.’
Asked if she provided evidence proving that was not the case, she admitted: ‘It’s really hard to prove a negative. If you haven’t bullied someone how do you show that you haven’t. Just denying an allegation “I didn’t beat my wife” doesn’t address the underlying problem that the allegation has been made.’
Jenny Afia, a BBC 2 presenter spoke about allegations that she used emotional cruelty against aides at her palace.
Harry and Meghan both deny bullying, according to their lawyer at the BBC.
The episode comes one week after the BBC’s controversial first episode drew ire from the Royal Family.
After reporting allegations regarding Prince Harry and Meghan leaving Britain, the BBC was accused of lending credibility to unfounded and exaggerated claims.
This controversial documentary has also been criticised as being biased against Prince William, Prince Charles and Prince Harry while portraying a favorable picture for Harry and Meghan.
Angela Levin (royal expert) said that it was quite telling that the final interview for the corporation in the first episode was with Duchess Sussex’s British lawyer. While the Royal Family replied to the question by writing onscreen,
Jenny Afia Head of Legal at Schillings who represents Meghan Was speaking with Duchess’ consent iShe claimed bullying allegations about the Duchess of Cambridge were false and rejected the narrative that Suits actress, a former Suits star, was difficult to work with.
Omid Scobie, a royal journalist who was nicknamed “Meghan’s mouthpiece”, claimed just minutes before that Meghan and Harry had been briefed by members of the Royal households.
The royals were furious at not being able to respond to the claims in the program and threatened to boycott future BBC projects. This is after they refused to allow courtiers to see the episode before it aired.
In the joint statement to the show, Buckingham Palace, Kensington Palace and Clarence House last night said it was ‘disappointing’ that the broadcaster had given credibility to ‘overblown and unfounded claims’ surrounding Harry and Meghan’s departure from Britain.
As it broadcast an unflattering documentary about William (pictured July 2018, BBC) the BBC was accused.
Representatives for Queen, Prince Charles, and Prince William made a strong statement to the BBC before last night’s broadcast.
The Palace A written statement was made with Prince Charles, Prince William, and Queen Elizabeth. It is understood that they are considering collectively complaining to Ofcom for first time in the history of the regulator.
According to the statement, ‘Freedom of expression is vital for a healthy democracy.
“However, it’s too common for unfounded and exaggerated claims to be presented from unnamed sources as factual information and it’s disappointing that anyone (including the BBC) gives them credence.”
After hearing that the staff of Prince William had told the media to report against Harry, Meghan and Meghan, the royal ordered the BBC to not show the charity concert. Instead, he offered the ITV broadcast.
However, insiders believe that Christmas could just be the tip.
ITV Insiders have confirmed that the show was offered to them late last year and they are still trying to negotiate a fee from BBC Studios, which is the production arm for the corporation producing the program.
One source said it was clear that William, who worked with the BBC over his Earthshot Prize but is protective of his staff and their reputations, would have to ‘seriously consider’ any further projects.
Dan Wootton, a Dan Wootton guest on this episode, spoke about his personal story that became known as “Tiaragate”. Jenny Afia, a Schillings lawyer who is working with the Duchesss of Sussex was also on the episode.
This is the first episode The Princes and The Press provided detailed media coverage from 2012 through 2018, when Harry and Meghan got engaged.
The article also claimed that there was a ‘competitiveness between different royal families. Dan Wootton (then Sun journalist, now columnist at MailOnline) also talked about his Tiaragate article in November 2018 about the Duchess.
There were claims that Meghan was in a fight with royals over the choice of her tiara for her nuptials with Prince Harry. The Queen vetoed Meghan’s first option of an emerald-colored tiara.
It is claimed that Harry said to Meghan, “What Meghan wants, Meghan receives.”
Mr Wootton also discussed bullying claims Meghan’s employees made against her. These claims she refutes and are the subject of a palace investigation.
He stated:Six months took it for the news to reach the public after the wedding. I disagree.
“It was these people who got annoyed before the public.
“At that time, no national newspaper dared dive into the huge war being waged behind closed doors.
“And that’s because no one from the royal rota was willing to tell that story.
“So, I had to take an outsider like myself to say “no, I’m not going to do it.”
Jenny Afia (a Schillings-based lawyer who assists Meghan), spoke out on camera to deny reports Meghan is difficult to work alongside.
She replied, “Those stories were false.” The story that the Duchess was demanding too much of her boss and no one could work with her is false.
The BBC sent a memo outlining the relevant claims, and refused to give an advance copy.
