Turns out, while former royal and Duchess of Sussex might be beloved by ignorant Americans and people are trying too hard to show their support for diversity, whatever the cost, she’s not well liked by the royal staff. In fact, she was so horrible as a Duchess that the royal staff supposedly labeled her a “narcissistic sociopath,” saying that her plan all along was to not get along with the royal family and pull Harry from it.
News on that comes from the Daily Beast, which reported:
Things got so bad between Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and their royal staff that they called her a “narcissistic sociopath.” They also reportedly said on repeated occasions: “We were played.”
The fresh revelations are contained in the second extract from the London Times royal correspondent Valentine Low’s new book, Courtiers: The Hidden Power Behind the Crown, in today’s Sunday Times.
The group of former staff even came up with a name for themselves, the “Sussex Survivors’ Club”; their key members were private secretary Sam Cohen, communications chief Sara Latham, and assistant press secretary Marnie Gaffney.
In the first extract published Friday, Low detailed the alleged bullying of staff undertaken by Meghan (and Harry)—denied emphatically by them—which reportedly left their staff “broken” and “shaking with fear.”
The problem was an obvious one. The palace staff are trained to be genteel and used to gentility, to be dealing with the modern version of “knights and their ladies fair.” Not with thrice-married, difficult to deal with American actresses that are quite bitchy. Such is what the Daily Beast also noted, saying:

Part of the problem of dealing with Meghan’s alleged bullying, according to one source, was the supposed gentility and civility of palace staff (which Meghan would likely contest too). “When someone decides not to be civil, they have no idea what to do. They were run over by her, and then run over by Harry,” a source told Low.
Commenting on that, one source said:
“As things started to go wrong, Meghan came to perceive Young [a member of the staff that she did not get along with] as the inflexible, bureaucratic figure who summed up what was [wrong] with the BP [Buckingham Palace] mentality, and the feeling was mutual. Young really came to dislike Meghan’s style.”
A staff member also indicated that Meghan never really wanted to be happy but instead just wanted to pull away from the royals, citing her unhappiness as a reason, saying:
“Everyone knew that the institution would be judged by her happiness. The mistake they made was thinking that she wanted to be happy. She wanted to be rejected, because she was obsessed with that narrative from day one.”
Fortunately for those tired of Meghan and Harry’s antics and degradation of the royal family, King Charles III is reportedly permanently exiling them now, ensuring they’re gone for good in the same way that Wallis Simpson and Edward VIII were before World War II.
