A royal expert believes that more former staff will follow in a former aide's footsteps by opening up about the alleged incident involving the Duchess of Sussex.

AceShowbiz - More stories about Meghan Markle's alleged palace bullying will seemingly come out. A royal expert shared that he believed more former staff would follow in a former aide's footsteps by opening up about the alleged incident.

"I have no doubt that more will now emerge," Tom Bower wrote in an editorial for the Daily Mail, published Tuesday, April 23. "The trickle of information will, soon enough, become a stream."

The author of "Revenge: Meghan, Harry, and the War Between the Windsors" added, "That's not to prejudge the matter or say what the verdict will be. But it's very much to the Palace's discredit that, whatever truth we arrive at, it should have to emerge in this painful and unsatisfactory way."

Tom's statement arrived after Samantha Cohen, a loyal and longstanding former palace aide, confirmed in an interview that she was once interviewed regarding the damning accusations. "I was only supposed to stay for six months but stayed for 18," Samantha revealed to the Herald Sun, via Page Six.

The 54-year-old went on detailing, "We couldn't find a replacement for me and when we did we took them on tour to Africa with Harry and Meghan to show them the ropes but they left (quit) as well while in Africa."

Samantha, who was a member of the royal staff for nearly 20 years, further shared that she was one of 10 staff members questioned about the claims. She, however, refused to elaborate.

The allegations that Meghan bullied her staff emerged after The Times of London reported that the wife of Prince Harry occasionally made her staff members cry during her time at Kensington Palace and prompted two senior members of the palace staff to quit their jobs. Jason Knauf, who served as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's communications assistant at the time, allegedly reported the behavior to Prince William's then-private secretary, Simon Case, in October 2018. "I am very concerned that the Duchess was able to bully two PAs out of the household in the past year. The treatment of X* was totally unacceptable," the HR complaint read.

"The Duchess seems intent on always having someone in her sights," Knauf reportedly further noted. "She is bullying Y and seeking to undermine her confidence. We have had report after report from people who have witnessed unacceptable behavior towards Y. I remain concerned that nothing will be done."

The Sussexes, however, vehemently denied the claims. They issued a statement that read, "Let's just call this what it is-a calculated smear campaign based on misleading and harmful misinformation. We are disappointed to see this defamatory portrayal of the Duchess of Sussex given credibility by a media outlet."
