Your side of the story. Meghan Markle she alleged that the palace used false stories about her to bury negative narratives about other members of the royal family.
“You’d just watch it unfold, like a story about someone in the family pops up for a minute, and they’re like, ‘We’ve got to make that go away,’ but there’s real estate on the home page of a website. Megan, 41, explained in a clip of the second part of his Netflix docuseries with prince harrywhich was published on Wednesday, December 14.

But before that, most people didn’t treat me as a ‘black woman’. So that talk didn’t happen for me.”
