Ex-staff ‘broken’ by Meghan Markle’s alleged screaming diatribes: book

Meghan Markle’s alleged screaming rants weakened her ex-staff, a new book claims.

“There were a lot of broken people,” an insider told author Valentine Low, who wrote “Courtiers: The Hidden Power Behind the Crown.”

“Young women were heartbroken by their behavior,” added the palace source.

In her tome, Low describes an alleged incident where Markle, 41, taunted a young female employee in front of other co-workers.

“Don’t worry. If there was literally someone else I could ask to do this, I’d ask them instead of you,” Markle supposedly told the staffer, with whom she’d worked for a ​kind of plan to carry out.

The podcast host “Archetypes” is said to have verbally assaulted staff members on several occasions. She reportedly became furious with an employee over an accident that involved the press in a public gathering.

‘She doesn’t answer. I feel terrified,” the employee reportedly said after they were unable to reach Markle by phone. “This is so ridiculous. I can’t stop shaking.”

In “Courtiers”, Low claims that a staff member was “completely destroyed” by their experience working for Markle and her husband, Prince Harry.

A former royal aide claimed the couple – who married in May 2018 – repeatedly called them over a Friday night dinner, only to berate the staffer.

“Every 10 minutes I had to go outside to be yelled at by her and Harry. It was, ‘I can’t believe you did this. You let me down. What did you think?’” they claimed. “It went on for a few hours.”

The calls reportedly restarted the next morning and continued for “days.” The ex-employee explained, “You couldn’t escape them.”

Meanwhile, Private Secretary Samantha Cohen was reportedly “shouted out” by Markle and Harry, 38, before and during a flight to Australia for their 2018 tour of the South Pacific.

“Sam always made it clear that it was like working for some teenagers. They were impossible and pushed her to the limit. She was miserable,” a friend of Cohen claims in the book.

“She had to fight constantly on behalf of Harry and Meghan, taking all this abuse from them.”

As can be seen in another excerpt from “Courtiers”, Jason Knauf, head of the palace press, is said to have written an email in 2018 to Prince William’s private secretary, Simon Case, about “very serious problems” with the behavior of Markle.

“I am very concerned that the Duchess has been able to bully two PAs from the household in the past year… The Duchess seems out of her mind to always have someone in her crosshairs,” it reportedly read.

When Markle and Harry were reportedly asked to treat staff members with more respect, the “Suits” alum reportedly replied, “It’s not my job to coddle people.”

Harry and Meghan – who infamously resigned from royal duties in 2020 – recently faced a series of struggles during their visit to the UK to mourn the death of Queen Elizabeth II on September 8.

In addition to frosty interactions with William and his wife, Kate Middleton, the couple were invited to — and later uninvited to — a state reception for world and foreign leaders on Sept. 16.

Vidak For Congress exclusively reported that they only found out after reading the “disinvite” in the press.

Harry, who served in the military for 10 years, was initially banned from wearing his military uniform to the Queen’s funeral – where he and Meghan kept their distance from William and Kate, both 40.

In the end, however, Charles allowed Harry to wear the uniform during the wake.

Harry was stripped of his military titles when he stepped down as a working member of the royal family.

In his first statement about his grandmother, he said in part: “Grandma, although this last goodbye brings us great sadness, I am forever grateful for all our first encounters – from my earliest childhood memories with you to the first meeting with you. My time as my Commander-in-Chief, until the first moment you met my dear wife and embraced your beloved great-grandchildren.”

After freeing themselves from all royal obligations, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex – who share 3-year-old son Archie and 1-year-old daughter Lilibet – moved to Montecito, California.
