Boris Johnson dragged into row over claims Meghan bullied staff


Boris Johnson said he has full confidence in his cabinet secretary after being dragged into a row over claims that Meghan Markle bullied royal staff. His cabinet secretary Simon Case worked for the royal family in 2018, when staff are reported to have complained about the behaviour of Prince Harrys new bride. The Duchess of Sussex was said to have humiliated staff, driving out two of her personal assistants and undermining the confidence of a third. No.10 yesterday said reports that Mr Case covered up the bullying claims were a matter for the palace. But when asked if the prime minister had full confidence in him, a spokesman insisted. Yes he does.The storm grew as a 30-second clip emerged of Meghan branding the royal family the firm and claiming they were perpetuating falsehoods about us. The excerpt is from Meghan and Harrys no holds barred TV interview with Oprah Winfrey, to be aired in the US on Sunday.It was recorded before the bullying claims emerged this week. But the clip was released on social media yesterday only hours after Buckingham Palace announced an internal inquiry into Meghan. And it shed new light on the couples feud with the rest of the royals. In the clip, the chat show host asks the duchess. How do you feel about the Palace hearing you speak your truth today? Meghan replies. I dont know how they could expect that, after all of this time, we would still just be silent if there is an active role that the firm is playing in perpetuating falsehoods about us. And if that comes with risk of losing things, I mean, I there is a lot that has been lost already.Past and present employees are to be invited to speak in confidence about their experiences working for Meghan in the palace inquiry. The duchess destroyed one member of staff, The Times newspaper reported, and another was left in tears before she departed. Jason Knauf, who was the Sussexes communications secretary at the time, had made a complaint about bullying in October 2018 in an apparent attempt to force Buckingham Palace to protect royal staff. The paper reported that Mr Knauf sent an email to Mr Case then the Duke of Cambridges private secretary after conversations with Samantha Carruthers, the royals head of human resources.Mr Knauf wrote in his email. 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 name redacted was totally unacceptable. The duchess seems intent on always having someone in her sights. She is bullying Y name redacted and seeking to undermine her confidence. We have had report after report from people who have witnessed unacceptable behaviour towards Y. Mr Knauf left a few months after making his allegations and is now a close aide to Harrys brother William he works as chief executive of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridges charity The Royal Foundation. Mr Case took over his current Whitehall role last September.The palace which usually declines to comment on such matters said in Wednesday nights statement. We are clearly very concerned about allegations in The Times following claims made by former staff of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Accordingly, our HR team will look into the circumstances outlined in the article. Members of staff involved at the time, including those who have left the household, will be invited to participate to see if lessons can be learned. The Royal Household has had a dignity at work policy in place for a number of years and does not and will not tolerate bullying or harassment in the workplace. Meghans spokesman has rejected the allegations, saying. The duchess is saddened by this latest attack on her character, particularly as someone who has been the target of bullying herself and is deeply committed to supporting those who have experienced pain and trauma. She is determined to continue her work building compassion around the world and will keep striving to set an example for doing what is right and doing what is good.he Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepped away from royal duties last year and have moved to the US, insisting they wanted privacy. It was confirmed last month that they would not be returning to front-line duties, with the Queen removing their military appointments and royal patronages. But the couple hit back with a contentious statement of their own which some interpreted as them lecturing the Queen. They said. We can all live a life of service. Service is universal. Their Oprah interview is due to be shown in the US on CBS on Sunday, then screened in Britain on ITV1 the following evening.There have been calls for the broadcast to be postponed or cancelled while Harrys 99-year-old grandfather Prince Philip remains in hospital after a heart procedure following an infection. A previous clip, released on Monday, showed Harry appearing to reflect on his mother Princess Dianas death and his fears of history repeating itself because of media coverage of Meghan. In the 30-second trailer, he tells Ms Winfrey. Im just really relieved and happy to be sitting here talking to you with my wife by my side because I cant begin to imagine what it must have been like for her going through this process by herself all those years ago. Because its been unbelievably tough for the two of us but at least we have each other.

Garcelle Beauvais Jokes She’s Going to Need Therapy After Filming ‘RHOBH’ Season 11 Exclusive


Garcelle Beauvais has made it through her second season on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills — but it sounds like it took its toll. In an interview with ETs Nischelle Turner on Thursday, Garcelle teased the interesting season. Im going to therapy, Garcelle joked of her experience filming season 11. Let me tell you now.This season was really interesting. We have two new friends. We have a new housewife Crystal Kung Minkoff and we have a new friend, Kathy Hilton, and it was really interesting to have new dynamics and not be the new girl, she added. But at the same time, theres a lot going on obviously with Erika Jayne and just a lot of things going on. Erika split from her husband, Tom Girardi, in November, after 21 years of marriage. Tom — who is also in the middle of other lawsuits — was recently placed under a temporary conservatorship, after his brother, Robert, claimed his current condition has sadly deteriorated to the point where he cannot care for himself without assistance. She goes there, Garcelle told ET of Erika. Im proud of her. She goes there. As for her personal drama this season, Garcelle said the other women came for her at times. But thats what the shows about, she reasoned. If its a kumbaya moment, nobody wants to watch that, so you kind of want to see a little bit of drama and there definitely is some. Last season ended with Garcelle butting heads with Lisa Rinna and Kyle Richards — and Garcelle said that friction was definitely addressed. That was really important for me that at the beginning of the season that we get to talk. I wanted to talk to Kyle and I also wanted to talk to Rinna, which we did, she said. So it will make for a good TV. Filming just wrapped on RHOBH, so fans will have to wait to see it all play out onscreen. In the meantime, Garcelle is co-hosting The Real on Fox. I love that show so much, se said. Its like a dream-come-true job. I always wanted to do this. I love the ladies and were really having really great conversations. Theres no other show where you have a panel of all women of color and we get to have those conversations where its not about talking about another community, were talking about our community, what were going through, and were having fun, she added. Fans can also catch Garcelle in Coming 2 America,which debuts on Friday. The actress played a rose bearer to Eddie Murphys Prince Akeem in the original movie in 1988, and is coming back for round two. We were giddy. It really started with Craig Brewer, the director. He was such a fan of the first one that he set the tone for this one. We were all so happy to be back, she gushed. Eddie looks great. We all look great. Black dont crack, therefore we all look the same. It was just really surreal, because if somebody wouldve said this would happen, wed be like, No, get out of here. Were not doing a sequel some 30 years later, she added. Coming 2 America debuts Friday on Amazon Prime Video. See more on Garcelle on Thursdays ET. Check your local listings.

Chiefs Pro Bowler Announces Sudden Retirement in Epic Fashion


The Kansas City Chiefs have decisions to make on two dozen impending free agents in the coming weeks, among them longtime fullback Anthony Sherman. However, it appears the Pro Bowler has made the decision an easy one for the team he has called home for the past eight seasons.On Thursday, the 10-year NFL veteran announced his retirement from the league by, quite literally, flying off into the sunset on a helicopter.Kansas City, thanks for all the memories, Sherman said in the 15-second clip posted to Twitter. Its been a great run. Eight years. Super Bowls. But its on to the next chapter.Fans will remember fondly Shermans extravagant Chiefs training camp arrivals, which in 2019 included driving up in a NASCAR stock car. Perhaps even funnier was the epic revenge prank that resulted in Sherman raffling off his personal truck last month for charity.Given the toll a fullbacks body takes during the season, a decade of longevity is quite an accomplishment, especially considering how todays pass-heavy offenses have deemphasized the position altogether. Sherman, who turned 32 years old this past December, was scheduled to hit the open market as an unrestricted free agent on March 17, the first day of the new league year.Judging by his recent contract history, he had likely been mulling this decision for at least a year or two. Kansas City and its fan-favorite fullback had re-upped on one-year deals for each of the past three seasons, which in 2020 earned him 1.18 million. According to Spotrac, the Massachusetts native and UConn alum walks away having earned 12.2 million over his 10-year pro career.Originally drafted in the fifth round No. 136 overall of the 2011 NFL Draft by the Arizona Cardinals, Sherman spent his first two seasons in the desert before being traded to Kansas City in April 2013 in exchange for former second-round defensive back Javier Arenas, who played his final NFL snaps in 2014.Shermans role on offense and special teams never lent itself to a packed stat sheet, but he wraps up a memorable career with 73 rushing yards and one touchdown on 28 carries to go along with 66 receptions for 552 yards and four scores through the air. Thanks to the Chiefs championship run in 2019, he also has one Super Bowl ring to show off in his next chapter.With Sherman gone, only two players remain since Andy Reid first took over as head coach in 2013. left tackle Eric Fisher and tight end Travis Kelce.
