Meghan Markle’s alleged screaming tirades have worn out her former staff, a bombshell new book claims.
“There were a lot of broken people,” claims an insider to author Valentine Lowe, who wrote Courtiers: The Hidden Power Behind the Crown.
“The young women were devastated by their behaviour,” added the palace source.
In his tome, Lowe describes an alleged incident in which Markle, 41, groped a young female worker in front of other co-workers.
“Do not worry. If there was literally someone else I could have asked to do this, I would have asked them for you,” Markle told the employee she was working with to execute something of a plan.
The Archetypes podcast host allegedly verbally attacked employees on multiple occasions. She allegedly became angry with an employee over a press mishap at a public engagement.
“She doesn’t lift. I feel terrible,” the employee allegedly said after they were unable to reach Markle by phone. “This is so ridiculous. I can’t stop shaking.”
In Courtiers, Lowe claims one member of staff was “completely devastated” by his experience working for Markle and her husband, Prince Harry.
A former royal aide claims the couple, who married in May 2018, repeatedly called them while they were out for dinner on a Friday night just to insult the official.
“Every 10 minutes I had to go outside to be shouted at by her and Harry. It was, “I can’t believe you did this. You disappoint me. What were you thinking?” they claim. “It went on for a few hours.”
The calls allegedly started again the next morning and continued “for days”. The former employee elaborated: “You can’t outrun them.”
Meanwhile, personal secretary Samantha Cohen is said to have been “yelled at” by Markle and Harry, 38, before and during a flight to Australia for their 2018 South Pacific tour.
“Sam always made it clear that it was like working for two teenagers. They were impossible and pushed her to the limit. She was unhappy,” a friend of Cohen claims in the book.
“She’s constantly had to fight on Harry and Meghan’s behalf while enduring all this abuse from them.”
As shown in another Courtiers excerpt, palace whistleblower Jason Knauf claims he wrote an email in 2018 to Prince William’s private secretary Simon Case about “very serious issues” with Markle’s behavior.
“I am very concerned that the Duchess has managed to deceive two PAs from the household over the past year … The Duchess seems intent on always having someone in her sights,” it claimed.
When Markle and Harry were asked to treat employees with more respect, the Suits alum replied: “It’s not my job to pamper people.”
Harry and Meghan, who infamously stepped down from their royal duties in 2020, recently faced a series of struggles during their visit to the UK to mourn the death of Queen Elizabeth II on September 8.
Adding to the icy interactions with William and his wife, Kate Middleton, the two were invited to — and later uninvited to — a state reception for world and foreign leaders on Sept. 16.
Page Six exclusively reported that they only found out after reading about the “rejection” in the press.
Harry, who served 10 years in the army, was also initially banned from wearing his military uniform at the Queen’s funeral – where he and Meghan kept their distance from William and Kate, both 40.
However, Charles eventually allowed Harry to wear the vigil uniform.
Harry was stripped of his military titles when he stepped down as a working member of the royal family.
In his first statement about his grandmother, he said in part: “Grandma, while this final parting brings us great sadness, I am eternally grateful for all our first encounters – from my earliest childhood memories with you to meeting you for the first time time as my Commander-in-Chief, to the first moment I met my dear wife and embraced my beloved great-grandchildren.’
After freeing themselves from all royal duties, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex — who share 3-year-old son Archie and 1-year-old daughter Lilibeth — have moved to Montecito, California.
