Meghan Markle claims stories about her were made up to protect royals in Netflix doc trailer that wages war on Palace | The Sun

MEGHAN Markle has claimed the Palace made up stories about her to protect senior royals in the latest bombshell Netflix doc trailer.

The Duchess of Sussex accused the Palace of being part of a conspiracy to attack her in order to make stories about other members of the Royal Family “go away”.

She said: 'You would see it play out. A story about someone in the family would pop up for a minute, and they'd go: '"We've got to make that go away".'

Meghan says: "You would just see it play out, like a story about someone in my family would pop up for a minute and they'd go 'We've got to kind of make that go away'.

"But there's real estate on a website homepage, there is real estate there on a newspaper front cover, and something has to be filled in there about someone royal."

The royal family is braced for the second part of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's explosive Netflix show which will drop tomorrow.

Meghan suggested that she would be used by royal aides to divert coverage away from negative press for other members of the firm.

And in the latest tease, released on Twitter, Meghan's team slammed the "negative" and "nasty" coverage of her before the Duchess made the extraordinary claims.

Jenny Afia, a partner at law firm Shillings, even goes as far to say there is a "real war" against Meghan.

She said: “There was a real war against Meghan and I’ve certainly seen evidence that there was negative briefing from the Palace against Harry and Meghan to suit other people’s agendas."

Afia added that stories about Thomas Markle in the press – and the breakdown of their relationship – were the "final straw" for the Duchess. 

While Meghan’s friend Lucy Fraser said she believed the Duchess had "become a scapegoat."

“Meg became this scapegoat for the Palace and so they would feed stories on her," Lucy said.

The new trailer suggests the new instalments will be just as explosive the couple discuss the fall out of their decision to move to America.

The couple's £88m show, titled Harry & Meghan, dives into the pair's "love story" as well as their feud with the Royal Family.

It seems likely that individual members of the royal family will feature in the show – including Prince William and Princess Kate.

While the first three episodes did not refer to the couple by name, watchers are expecting Harry and Meghan to speak in detail about their relationship – and subsequent fall out – with royals.

Buckingham Palace said they have declined to comment on the new teaser.

It comes after the couple made a number of stunning claims in the first-part release last week.

The first three episodes of the docu-series sees the Duchess relive her "jarring" first meeting with Princess Kate.

Meanwhile Harry made a sly dig at his dad King Charles' parenting by claiming he was "brought up" by friends in Africa.

Meghan Markle haspreviously claimed "salacious" stories were "planted" in the press in the lead-up to her wedding to Prince Harry in May 2018.

While Harry said in the first episode release that he was "terrified" Meghan would be "driven away by the media".

In the bombshell Netflix show, the Duke of Sussex also said he met the Duchess "over Instagram" – despite previously claiming that they met on a blind date.

Harry and Meghan signed lucrative deals, thought to be worth well over £100 million, with the streaming giant and Spotify after quitting as senior working royals in 2020 following family rifts and struggles with royal life.
