A television presenter in America urges the Queen and senior members of the royal family to publicly apologize to the Duchess of Sussex.
Sunny Hostin, co-host of The View, says the royal family should apologize to Meghan for not advocating the racial abuse she has suffered in the UK.
The co-anchor said that instead of “dredging up” years of allegations of “bullying” employees, should The Firm stand them, The mirror reports.
Speaking to Whoopi Goldberg, Meghan McCain, Sara Haines and Joy Behar after it was revealed that the palace opened an investigation into Meghan’s allegations of bullying against employees, Sunny said senior royals should have done more.
“I think they are so concerned – the company, the palace, the royal family – about the Oprah interview to unearth some allegations from two and a half years ago that she allegedly bullied employees by emailing them at 5am “she said.
“Geez, I send emails at 1am, 2am, 5am – I would have had a lot of cases against me if it had been criminal behavior.”
Sunny continued: “I am really shocked that I have not tried to repair this rift but rather to support Meghan and Harry who I believe are removing his wife and family from England because of the terrible racial hatred they have been subjected to He didn’t want history to repeat itself after what happened to his mother in the media.
“I’m just surprised that they didn’t even try to apologize for not protecting them anymore and instead do so.
“I think it says a lot about the way the royal family works,” she added.
Sunny’s co-host Meghan McCain agreed, calling some of the bullying allegations “ridiculous” in their content.
“This is really interesting because it’s a very obvious contradiction to Meghan Markle and one of the things she’s been accused of for abusing her is emailing employees early in the morning,” she said.
“Right now they are trying to make Meghan Markle look really, really bad, including the accusation of wearing diamond earrings that were given to her by the Prince of Saudi Arabia after the assassination of Jamal Khashoggi.
“And these are all facts that I have known for many years – why are they coming out now?”
Panelist Joy Behar agreed, saying, “In the British monarchy, they’ll only make your life miserable – you’d better stick to the line.
“You don’t like it when you go up against them.
“Look what happened to Diana, the same, the same. So I’m on Team Meghan Markle.”
It comes when a number of Meghan’s famous friends throw public support behind them on the eve of their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.
She is expected to work with Prince Harry to give the exact reasons for her highly regarded “Megxit” break from Great Britain early last year and to go into intolerable details of what life in the royal family really is like.
The session chat will air on Sunday at 7 p.m. (Monday at 1 a.m. GMT) in the US, followed by a broadcast on Monday at 9 p.m. on ITV.
