Actress and current member of the British Royal family, Meghan Markle has recently been facing accusations of bullying by a former communications secretary from the palace. A host of celebrities have come to Meghan Markle's aid, calling these accusations ridiculous. CBS news journalist Gayle King has also rushed to be by Meghan's side and accused the Royal Family of having a hand in launching "a full-scale takedown" against Markle. Meghan Markle's Oprah interview conducted by CBS was staged at Gayle King's own mansion, according to multiple reports.
Gayle King and Meghan Markle have been good friends as has been evident in the past. King was one of the 20 people invited to Meghan's baby shower when the Duchess was pregnant with her first child, Archie. CBS even released a short clip on their Twitter handle talking about the invitees at the shower.

Gayle introduced a clip from the interview on Friday, where she said many things in the defence of the Duchess of Sussex. At one point, King said, "The Palace, also known as The Firm, has launched what appears to be a full-scale takedown of Meghan which is raging in the UK right now, saying she was a mean girl who mistreated staff, and if you meet Meghan Markle nothing could be further from the truth," King also spoke about the accusations of statutory rape against Prince Andrew who was supposedly a good friend of convicted sex offender, Jeffrey Epstein. Prince Andrew has so far denied all such allegations.
Gayle King also mentioned how the Royal Family is on a mission of "a huge takedown of Meghan" calling it all "coinkidink". According to multiple reports, King also insisted that both Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been "villified" by the public. King ended her speech about the interview by mentioning how people will soon understand "what went into their thought process" when they decided to leave the royal family. She also mentioned that people can then make up their own minds since the couple have been "vilified", noting that this has happened more with Meghan in particular as compared to Prince Harry.
