With just a little about of time left for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah Winfrey to be released, CBS has been releasing a few teasers this week. The third teaser was released on Thursday morning and featured a conversation between Meghan and Oprah. While the first two teasers exhibited Prince Harry’s responses, this one shows Meghan being asked about what Buckingham Palace thinks about her truth today.
In the small 30-second teaser, Oprah asks Meghan, “How do you feel about the palace hearing you speak your truth today?” To which, Meghan replied saying that they cannot believe her and Prince Harry to “just be silent”.
She said, “I don’t know how they could expect that after all of this time we would still just be silent if there is an active role that the firm is playing in perpetuating falsehoods about us.” Meghan further added, “If that comes with the risk of losing things, there is a lot that has been lost already.”
Meghan’s interview teaser arrives along with bullying allegations against her by the palace staff. According to a report in The Times, the Duchess of Sussex was related to as a bully during her period as a working royal in 2018 at Kensington Palace. Still, Meghan’s team shot back at the allegations saying they were saddened by it. “The Duchess is saddened by this latest attack on her character, particularly as someone who has been the target of bullying herself and is deeply committed to supporting those who have experienced pain and trauma,” her rep said in a statement.
It was also disclosed that an investigation is underway into the matter at hand. “We are very concerned about allegations in the Times following claims made by former staff of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex,” the statement began.
“Accordingly, our HR team will look into the circumstances outlined in the article. Members of staff involved at the time, including those who have left the Household, will be invited to participate to see if lessons can be learned,” the statement proceeded before surmising, “The Royal Household has had a Dignity at Work policy in place for several years and does not and will not tolerate bullying or harassment in the workplace.”
