Prince Harry and Meghan Markle paved the way for "making millions" through commercial deals when they were members of the British royal family, it is said.
The charge is one of a series of new charges brought against the couple by disgruntled former employees. In view of this origin, the new allegations are treated with some skepticism.
However, the new claim fits in with the allegations made last week that Meghan and David Furnish secretly introduced Netflix to Netflix in 2018 with their idea for an animated series Pearl about a girl of the same name who is inspired by strong historical female characters. At the time, Meghan was still a full-fledged king and it was expected that she would seek palace permission to showcase commercial or non-commercial media projects.
The new allegation is reportedly based on a small group of ex-Sussex employees who were debating whether to turn the mess on the couple's heads, apparently out of concern that Harry's upcoming memoir would not be a "complete and accurate picture" of their lives will represent as kings. Former employees have jokingly referred to themselves as the Sussex Survivors Club in the past.
The Daily Mail's Dan Wootton, the journalist who first broke the news that Harry and Meghan were leaving the UK, quoted a source in his report late Monday as saying that a plan was being considered involving former employees of Sussex allows her to side the story to reporters through friends, and that a "blind eye" could be drawn to any violation of the Official Secrets Act, which usually prevents former employees from disclosing details of their royal appointments.
Quoting a source, Wootton said that the former co-workers were “convinced” the book is about “settling the bills,” adding, “Many of the secrets they know are explosive and would, as would a large part of those of these two, be blow up carefully elaborated victim narrative. For example, some of these employees knew of commercial talks that were being held when they were full-time royals - they paved the way to make millions long before Megxit was revealed. "
At the time of their departure from the royal family, Harry and Meghan said they valued “the opportunity to earn a professional income, which is forbidden to them in the current structure. It is for this reason that they have chosen to become members of the royal family with financial independence. "
It is perhaps not entirely surprising that the new turbulence on this front is emanating from former employees.
The couple's tense relationship with their co-workers is well known. They experienced a high turnover of employees by royal standards, whereby several important helpers and assistants stopped working for them after only short periods of service. Meghan, for example, is a demanding boss who already sent emails to employees at 5 a.m.
The couple were previously accused of harassing employees while they were working royals. Relationships with her employees deteriorated so much that her former right-wing husband, Jason Knauf, complained in a letter to his superiors about Meghan's behavior: “I am very concerned that the Duchess was able to take two PAs out of the household to bully the past year. The treatment of X was completely unacceptable. "
He added: “The Duchess seems intent on always having someone in her sights. She bullies Y and tries to undermine her confidence. "
The letter was leaked to the Times just prior to the couple's bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey. Harry and Meghan condemned the leak as "defamation". Buckingham Palace is conducting a private investigation into the allegations.
At least 10 former employees reportedly tried to testify in the investigation, which is being conducted by a team of outside lawyers.
A Sussexes spokesman did not respond to a request for comment.
