Meghan Markle: the investigation of the royal family on it is over, what we know of the results

More than a year after Meghan Markle was accused of harassment by ex-employees, the Crown has closed its internal investigation. But the discussions and results will not be revealed.

  • In March 2021, the Crown opened an investigation after allegations of harassment against Meghan Markle
  • The investigation is over but the results will not be released.
  • Meghan Markle has always firmly denied the facts of which she was accused

The Crown’s investigation is complete, but we will not know its conclusions. In March 2021, the British royal family opened an investigation after several former employees of the Duchess said they were victims of harassment and intimidation in an investigation published by the Times. “We are clearly very concerned by the allegations made by The Times following claims made by former staff of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex”, the palace said. In “result”a “HR team will review the circumstances described in the article” : ‘Staff involved at the time, including those who have left the home, will be invited to participate to see if any lessons can be learned’had then specified the palace of Buckingham.

More than a year after its opening, the internal investigation is over. But the findings will not be made public. According People instead, recommendations have been incorporated into Palace policies and procedures. In these, employees are encouraged to be whistleblowers if they are victims or witnesses of practices or actions “inappropriate”. In the conclusions there is also a policy of “preoccupation with work”which sets out how staff members have the opportunity to raise a concern or “speak up” about others within the institution. “This is in no way limiting – there is a procedure for reporting a concern”, said a source, who mentioned the possibility of raising issues through independent advisers.

Meghan Markle “saddened” by the revelations

Soon after the publication of the survey of the Times who questioned him, Meghan Markle had come out of silence through one of her spokespersons. “The Duchess is saddened by this latest attack on her character, especially as someone who has been the target of bullying and who is deeply committed to supporting those who are sufferingconfided the wife of prince Harry. She is determined to continue her work of building compassion in the world and will continue to strive to lead by example by doing what is right and doing what is right.” The investigation has been entrusted to an independent law firm. “This work was undertaken privately and no taxpayer grant money was spentsaid a source. (…) The review has been completed and recommendations on our policies and procedures have been advanced, but we will not comment further.”
