The Times reported today that it was approached by royal palace aides who claim one of the duchess's former advisors filed a bullying complaint against her while she was at Kensington Palace.
Jason Knauf, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s communications secretary at the time, submitted a formal complaint about the claims in October 2018 in an apparent bid to protect his staff.
In his email, Mr Knauf said: “I am very concerned that the Duchess was able to bully two PAs out of the household in the past year. The treatment of X was totally unacceptable.”
The newspaper claims it has been told by a source that Prince Harry pleaded with his communications secretary not to send the complaint.
A spokesperson for the Sussexes denied the claim in the British newspaper, saying it was "based on misleading and harmful misinformation."
The couple's lawyers also said The Times was being used "by Buckingham Palace to peddle a wholly false narrative" before their interview with Oprah.
