Shortly after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their revealing interview with Oprah, which aired in March of last year, Buckingham Palace released a statement about the “harassment” claims on The times which reported that staff had made accusations against the couple during their time as royals. According to the publication, two personal assistants left their duties and the staff was ‘humiliated’.
At the time, the Palace said: “We are clearly very concerned about the allegations in The Times following claims made by former employees of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.”
‘Accordingly, our human resources team will analyze the circumstances described in the article. Staff members involved at the time, including those who have left home, will be invited to participate to see if lessons can be learned.
“The Royal House has had a Dignity at Work policy for a number of years and does not and will not tolerate bullying or harassment in the workplace.”
Meghan responded to the allegations, saying she was “saddened by this latest attack on her character, particularly as someone who has been the target of bullying and is deeply committed to supporting those who have experienced pain and trauma” and her lawyers denied the allegations.
Now, Palacio is being asked why he will not reveal details about the investigation’s findings after confirming that the review had concluded.
Instead, they have said they are working to improve complaints handling and modify human resources policies, but won’t release details.
As reported via sky news, a senior palace source said: ‘Due to the confidentiality of the discussions, we have not communicated detailed recommendations. The recommendations have been incorporated into the policies and procedures where appropriate and the policies and procedures have changed.
“So every member of staff, every member of the royal family will be aware of what the policies and procedures are, the revised policies and procedures.”
The review was privately funded, and Palace suggested that any changes to policy or procedure be shared in the Sovereign Grant report.
