A new report reveals that Meghan Markle allegedly fired a nanny after just days in the role following a mysterious “incident” with son, Archie. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex hired the night nurse in 2019 to assist in establishing a sleeping pattern for the new born.
According to Omid Scobie – the Royal author behind the explosive biography Finding Freedom – something had occurred early in the employment. It prompted Markle and Harry to not only fire the nanny but stopped them from looking for another.
Speaking on Britain’s A Very Royal Baby: From Cradle to Crown, Scobie said: “Very few people know the real story behind it.
“After Archie’s arrival, Harry and Meghan wanted some help to establish a sleep pattern. They hired a night nanny.
“Whilst I can’t go into someone else’s employment details for legal reasons, it was an incident on one of the first nights that put the couple off from having a night nurse.”
It is believed Markle fed information to Scobie for the aforementioned book however the Duchess has disputed this. Finding Freedom was largely criticised as a means of “a media strategy to improve or enhance her image” according to news.com.au.
In March, Markle was accused of bullying staff members, per The Times. She reportedly, “drove two personal assistants out of the household and was undermining the confidence of a third staff member.” While this was strongly denied by Markle’s team, it reportedly led the Palace to launch an investigation.
Markle has continued to fight defamation and false reporting by the media in court. On May 6 a London High Court judge ruled in favour of Markle regarding copyright on excerpts from a five-page handwritten letter to her estranged father. It comes after Associated Newspapers Limited was ordered to pay the Duchess of Sussex 90 percent of her estimated $1.88 million in legal expenses for another court ruling from March.
