A British royal correspondent has rebutted Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s declare that nobody from the palace press group tried to guard them against the tabloids — saying it’s “just not right.”
Emily Andrews, the Mail on Sunday’s royal editor, stated palace press aides intervened in her reporting on the couple to defend them “again and again.”
“Meghan says the press team didn’t defend her when ‘things weren’t true,’” Andrews wrote on Twitter.
“That is just not right. The press team with whom I interacted defended them again & again & again, told me things were wrong (so didn’t publish) & indeed tried to stop me when true.”
In a brand new clip of the Oprah Winfrey interview that aired Sunday within the US and Monday within the UK, the Duchess of Sussex claimed the press group wouldn’t go on the file to defend the couple in opposition to false accusations.
Comparing their expertise with that of different royals, Markle stated it was “not the same.”
“You’ve also had a press team that goes on the record to defend you especially when they know something’s not true and that didn’t happen for us,” Markle stated, referring to her husband’s older brother, Prince William, and his spouse, Kate Middleton.
