Buckingham Palace Investigates Bullying Claims Against Meghan Markle
Shortly after a piece in the Times in the U.K. alleging that Meghan Markle bullied staff members at Kensington Palace, Buckingham Palace has released a statement saying their "HR team will look into the circumstances outlined in the article."
Ahead of her tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey, Meghan Markle is facing "bullying" accusations from former Kensington Palace staffers, as well as a flurry of negative media reports attacking her character. And Chrissy Teigen, for one, would like to see an end to the backlash.
On Friday, the model tweeted her support for the duchess — who is currently expecting her second child — while expressing concern for her mental and physical wellbeing. "This Meghan Markle s–t is hitting too close to home for me," Teigen wrote. "These people won't stop until she miscarries. F–king stop it."
Last year, Chrissy experienced a similar level of scrutiny after she shared photos from her hospital bed holding her late son, Jack. Critics said she should have kept the moment private, but Chrissy disagreed.
"I cannot express how little I care that you hate the photos," she wrote in a personal essay posted to Medium. "How little I care that it's something you wouldn't have done. I lived it, I chose to do it, and more than anything, these photos aren't for anyone but the people who have lived this or are curious enough to wonder what something like this is like. These photos are only for the people who need them. The thoughts of others do not matter to me."
This isn't the first time Chrissy has come to Meghan's defense.
Back in November, the Cravings author shut down a troll who criticized Meghan's New York Times op-ed detailing her own miscarriage over the summer. "Is anyone really questioning the pain and sheer awfulness of suffering a miscarriage, or are they perhaps criticizing Meghan's decision to write a 1,000 word op-Ed about herself?" the user wrote, to which Teigen fired back: "Award for today's absolute piece of s--t goes to Marco Giannangeli. Congratulations, piece of s—t."
