Royal insiders reveal that the Duchess of Sussex is struggling with the fact she cannot speak out and deny the claims.
“It’s just been frustrating and stressful to have no voice,” a royal insider told US Weekly. “She’s always relied on her own voice to stand up for others, and for herself.”
The source continued: “So not being able to say anything is debilitating feeling. She’s always been so independent, her entire life, and that’s all been taken away from her.
“She’s always been able to clap back on social media and now she can’t."
Over the past month, the 37-year-old former Suits star has been the subject of multiple reports suggesting she is difficult, has a strained relationship with Middleton and has been demanding towards the royal staff.
“It has put pressure on her relationship with Harry. He’s very frustrated with how little can be done,” another source told Us Weekly.
After the unexpected departure of her personal assistant last month, this week it was announced that another member of Meghan's staff was leaving, prompting further speculation about the Duchess' attitude, despite Kate Middleton having had a similar staff turnover when she and Prince William got married.
