4 mins read

Millionaire financier Ben Goldsmith has claimed Meghan Markle is “disliked” because she is “a manipulative bully” and not because the UK is racist. Mr Goldsmith made the extraordinary claim in a string of tweets as he responded to a Twitter user who suggeted the Duchess of Sussex was the victim of racism.

The financier argued Meghan, 41, was initially “adored” in the UK as crowds “thronged the streets” to celebrate her Royal Wedding to Prince Harry.

But, he said, she is now “disliked” because she has been found out to be “manipulative bully”.

He said: “We are far from perfect, but poll after poll shows British people to be among the most welcoming and the least racist anywhere.

“At the start Meghan was adored. Crowds thronged the streets at the wedding.

“Meghan is disliked because she is a manipulative bully who got found out.

“Let’s be abundantly clear – they don’t like Meghan Markle because she’s a Black Woman.”

Buckingham Palace launched an investigation last March after The Times newspaper reported bullying allegations had been made against Prince Harry’s wife, including claims she had reduced some of her assistants to tears and treated others so badly that they had quit.

The couple issued a statement in response denying she had bullied anyone, and in an explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey shortly afterwards, she accused the palace of “perpetuating falsehoods”.

The palace later announced its decision to keep details about the review into claims of bullying secret, saying lessons had been learned.

Meghan has spent the last few weeks in the UK to support her husband Prince Harry as they mourn the loss of his beloved grandmother, the Queen. 

The couple’s relationship with the Firm came under even more scrutiny when they appeared at a number of events to mark the loss of the longest reigning monarch. 

Although the Duke of Sussex has stepped back from royal duties, he took his place alongside his brother the Prince of Wales for the ceremonies of the Queen’s state funeral.

William, in his RAF No1 uniform, and Harry, in formal funeral wear and medals, marched slowly behind their father, the King, as the Queen’s coffin was taken from Westminster Hall, at the heart of the Palace of Westminster, where she had been lying in state.

After some controversy about Harry and Meghan holding hands as they left Westminster Hall following the short service at the beginning of the Queen’s lying in state, the couple walked side by side, but not holding hands.
