Meghan Markle 'wore earrings gifted by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to formal dinner after Khashoggi killing'

MEGHAN Markle wore earrings gifted by Saudi's Mohammed bin Salman to a formal dinner in Fiji, just three weeks after the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, according to reports.

Khashoggi was killed after he entered the Saudi consulate in Turkey on October 2, 2018 after the Crown Prince approved for him to be “captured or Killed.

The circumstances surrounding Khashoggi's death sparked controversy, with global leaders blasting the Saudi government's version of events.

But according to The Times the Duchess of Sussex reportedly donned earrings which were a wedding gift from bin Salman just three weeks after his death.

She attended a formal dinner in Fiji in 2018 while allegedly wearing the jewerly.

At the time Kensington Palace said the earring were "borrowed" but would not reveal from who.

Meanwhile it has also been reported Meghan faced a bullying complaint from one of her closest advisors at Kensington Palace.

Sources told The Times that the Duchess drove two personal assistants out of the household – and undermined the confidence of a third staff member. 

Jason Knauf, then the couple’s communications assistant, reportedly submitted the complaint in October 2018 to protect palace staff who were allegedly coming under pressure from the Duchess. 

Sources said that the Palace was a tense atmosphere – with staff occasionally reduced to tears.

One royal aide, anticipating a row with Meghan, is alleged to have told a colleague: “I can’t stop shaking.”

A spokesman for the Sussexes said: "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."

They added: “We have addressed these defamatory claims in full, including spurious allegations regarding the use of gifts loaned to The Duchess by The Crown."

It comes just days before Meghan and Harry are due to sit down for their ‘tell-all’ interview with Oprah Winfrey.
