Various staff workers who worked with Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, have been quoted as calling Meghan a “narcissistic sociopath.”
Valentine Low, a seasoned royal reporter, wrote the book “Courtiers: The Hidden Power Behind the Crown.”
According to Sky News Australia, the book claims that the toxicity of working for Meghan was so great that some of their staff members referred to themselves as “the Sussex Survivors Club.”
According to the book, which will be published on October 6 and quotes a source, Markle desired confrontation. “She wanted to be rejected, because she was obsessed with that narrative from day one,” the person said.
The book, from which the Times of London published portions, claims that Meghan flexed her influence right away, even with Harry.
According to one source cited in the book, “She was saying, ‘If you don’t put out a statement confirming I’m your girlfriend, I’m going to break up with you,.” Another source states that Harry “was freaking out, saying, ‘She’s going to dump me.’”
The book claims that when the topic of worker complaints came up in 2017, Meghan batted it down by retorting, “It’s not my job to coddle people.”
The book recounts an early incident about how she handled her employees.
“At around the same time [prior to the Harry-Meghan wedding], Meghan spoke particularly harshly at a meeting to a young female member of the team in front of her colleagues. After Meghan had pulled to shreds a plan she had drawn up, the woman told Meghan how hard it would be to implement a new one,” the passage read.
The extract says that Meghan advised her, “Don’t worry. If there was literally anyone else I could ask to do this, I would be asking them instead of you.”
According to the book, a different employee claimed the assault was constant:
“On another occasion, when Meghan felt she had been let down over an issue that was worrying her, she rang repeatedly when the staffer was out for dinner on a Friday night. ‘Every ten minutes, I had to go outside to be screamed at by her and Harry. It was, “I can’t believe you’ve done this. You’ve let me down. What were you thinking?” It went on for a couple of hours.’ The calls started again the next morning and continued ‘for days’, the staffer said. ‘You could not escape them. There were no lines or boundaries – it was last thing at night, first thing in the morning.’”
According to the extracts, Meghan’s argument with her former personal assistant Melissa Touabti was sparked by freebies.
“Clothes, jewelery, candles… It was absolutely nonstop,” stated a source, as per the book, which stated Toubati to enforce to the rule that royal family members do not take gifts from businesses.
“Her approach did not go down well with Meghan,” the book states.
The book describes the staff member’s horror when a mix-up occurred and he or she had to phone Meghan, missed her, and waited for a return call.
“She hasn’t called back. I feel terrified,” t he employee stated, “This is so ridiculous. I can’t stop shaking.”
According to one source included in the book, the conclusion was that “There were a lot of broken people. Young women were broken by their behavior.” Other outlets using words as “outrageous bullies,” and “dreadful” to describe the pair.
The couple’s communications secretary, Jason Knauf, who previously served in the same capacity for Harry’s older brother, Prince William, and his wife, Kate, is mentioned in the book in what is purported to be an email.
An American named Knauf who had previously worked for the Royal Bank of Scotland reported that Meghan was the source of “some very serious problems.”
