Not a ‘peep’ heard: Buckingham Palace accused of ‘trying to bury’ inquiry that Duchess of Sussex bullied staff

Buckingham Palace has been accused of “trying to bury” its inquiry into allegations that Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle bullied her staff.

It is understood that only “four or five” former members of the Sussexes’ team in total have been spoken to as part of the Royal Household’s official investigation into the claims.

Just over a year since the inquiry was launched, royal officials have so far refused to divulge any of their findings – or even confirm whether the results of the investigation will be included in this year’s annual review.

The review is due to be published in June, as previously suggested, with up to 25 people working for them at times considered potential witnesses.

However, nothing has been heard since last summer by any of those involved in the allegations.

Without those interviewed having heard a “peep” for at least six months, critics are now accusing the Queen’s private secretary, Sir Edward Young, of “burying” the report amid a “wall of silence”.

“No-one even knows whether they have formally concluded their work, are considering their findings or are just trying to bury it all, which is actually what the consensus seems to think is happening,” one source told the Daily Mail.

“They haven’t even spoken to everyone who was there at the time and will have witnessed what was said to be happening first hand.

“It just seems like they wish it would all go away.”
