Meghan Markle sent the world in a tizzy after new allegations made by her right team said that she thought ‘unprotected’ in the royal family.
Days after the allegations were made through a court document in her lawsuit against the Mail on Sunday, royal sources have now stepped forth to refute the allegations.
A statement by the Sunday Times citing royal sources rubbished the Duchess of Sussex’s statement of thinking ‘unprotected’ in her pregnancy during her time a royal.
Royal insiders labelled the claims as “ridiculous” and “galling”.
“It’s a ridiculous claim. It’s so very disappointing. The institution was doing everything in its power to support her. Everyone was trying to help her,” said one source.
“It’s fiction and galling,” added another source.
“It’s completely inaccurate and total rubbish,” said a third, adding that aides “rebutted every unfounded story they possibly could within reason” and “stretched their relationship with the media to breaking point.”
Earlier, the Duchess of Sussex’s lawyer insists that she and her friends thought “silenced” in the family up to their penchant for common practices.
The documents state: “[Meghan Markle] had become the subject of a great number of false and damaging articles by the U.K. tabloid media, especially by the [Mail on Sunday], which made tremendous nervous distress and injury to her mental health.”
“As her friends had nevermore seen her in this state before, they were rightly concerned for her welfare, especially as she was pregnant, unprotected by the Institution and prohibited from defending herself,” they further added.
The duchess’ lawyers have also claimed that Prince Harry had informed his wife of the article by People magazine which quoted her friends defending her against the Mail on Sunday’s claims.
