Kate had staff quit as she adjusted to royal life like Meghan, expert claims

Kate Middleton had staff quit as she adjusted to royal life just like Meghan Markle, an expert has claimed.

After Oprah Winfrey told Meghan Markle she was branded "Hurricane Meghan" in the press and on social media, it appears her sister-in-law faced similar difficulties.

In a 2016 documentary, royal expert Ashley Pearson told how two members of the Duchess of Cambridge's staff quit after she joined the Royal family.

Speaking in 'William & Kate: The Journey', Ashley claimed Kate's head housekeeper and head gardener left their positions because they struggled with how much the new royal wanted to do for herself.

MirrorOnline reports she said: "Kate had broken precedent in the sense that she does more for herself than anyone else in her position has ever done before.

"In fact, Kate and William's head housekeeper and head gardener both quit – they were a married couple."

It has been reported that royal staff found Meghan "difficult" and two members of her team left their jobs.

Her personal assistant Melissa Touabti quit after six months in the job while close aide Samantha Cohen left shortly afterwards.

Buckingham Palace is investigating reports of bullying allegations made against Meghan shortly before the bombshell Oprah interview first aired.

Meghan denies the allegations and called the reports a "calculated smear campaign".

Ashley added that Kate's desire to do things for herself was thought to be very "controversial".

She said: "It was very controversial because they had actually worked for the Queen previously and then came over to work for Prince William and Kate.

"There was a lot of speculation at the time that Carole Middleton had been interfering in the housekeeper's duties, that Kate Middleton was doing a lot for herself and that didn't sit too well with staff."

Ashely said that this was perhaps because Kate wasn't used to having servants as she didn't grow up with them as her husband had done.

"Kate is in a difficult position because she didn't grow up with household servants. She likes to cook, she likes to do things for William, and she very much likes the privacy one gets without servants around," she added.
