Buckingham Palace has denied Prince Harry and Meghan Markle closure.
In March of 2021, Buckingham Palace staff accused Duchess Meghan Markle of bullying. Buckingham immediately launched an investigation into the allegations and have finished their report as of June 29, 2022.
However, a senior aide for the Palace announced that while the investigation was complete, they would not be releasing their findings.
The accusations against Markle claimed she had "driven two personal assistants out of the royal household and undermined the confidence of a third." They were published in U.K. newspaper, "The Times," prompting a response from Buckingham Palace the next day. Their statement read,
"We are clearly very concerned about allegations in The Times following claims made by former staff of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex. 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 Royal Household has had a Dignity at Work policy in place for a number of years and does not and will not tolerate bullying or harassment in the workplace."
The allegations and Palace response came just days before the Duke and Duchess were scheduled to appear on CBS for an explosive tell-all with Oprah Winfrey, where Markle planned to detail the racism and bullying she had experienced from other members of the royal family.
The couple vehemently denied the accusations at the time of their release, saying in a joint statement that the Duchess was "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."
They added that Markle was "determined to continue her work building compassion around the world and will keep striving to set an example for doing what is right and doing what is good."
With the latest findings being kept from the public, a source close to the Duke and Duchess claims they are "disappointed" they will not have the chance to clear Markle's name.
