Meghan Markle’s lawyer, Jenny Afia, defended her publicly against allegations she was a “difficult or demanding boss” in the new BBC documentary The Princes and the Press. She stated that the claims were “just not true,” and a spokesperson for the Sussexes branded the allegation a “calculated smear campaign.” The Princes and the Press explored the fractured relationship between Princes Harry and William and the press, in what will be a two-part series. 

Royal expert Neil Sean spoke about the appearance on his YouTube channel.

The NBC royal correspondent said the documentary included “the very thorny and delicate subject about the ongoing bullying claims from ex-staff that worked alongside the former Royals, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex during their time at Frogmore cottage and Kensington Palace.”

He continued: “Now it’s interesting because the BBC wheeled out the lawyer from Schillings, which is a very big law firm here in London and they brought this particular lady out who was very glamorous. [She was] only on really for about 20 seconds to claim that all the bullying claims were totally false.

“There was no other side on that, there was no other person interviewed about that particular segment.

“There were some royal reporters who were acting on sources that they couldn’t reveal – as is always the case – but why would you simply bring out the lawyer for Harry and Meghan, just seems stupid.

“For the lawyer to appear on television, she would have had to get that cleared by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex for her to get his side of the story across.

“It didn’t really serve any purpose other than stoking the fire once again.

He added: “Now as we know that the presenter in question couldn’t ask the lawyer, too many things because this is still an ongoing investigation.

“It’s far from concluded now. And given the fact that the former aide, Jason, has revealed that Meghan had a lapse of memory while allegedly helping with that book, it does say, well, what was the point of bringing the lawyer out? Could it be to antagonise members of the British Monarchy over here?

“It did put Harry and Meghan centre stage once again, in a British documentary on primetime, talking about how difficult it’s been for them, trying to clear their name.

“The [case] will be done in due course, and we’re not sure of the outcome yet. As I say, it’s still very much an active, ongoing case.

“Whatever you may think of Harry and Meghan, their teams are very hot in making sure that they get their side of the story out, while others like of course, William and Catherine and the former staff that worked for them have to remain silent.”

Meghan has vehemently denied the claims that her behaviour had driven two personal assistants out of the household.

In a rare intervention, Buckingham Palace said it was “very concerned about the allegations” and announced they would launch an investigation.
