Samantha Cohen, a former aide to the British Royal Family, has confirmed her participation in Buckingham Palace's investigation into workplace bullying allegations against Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex.

Cohen, who served the royal family for 17 years, acted as Markle's private secretary in 2021 when initial complaints were lodged alleging the Duchess had fostered a toxic work environment.

Speaking to The Herald Sun, Cohen declined to provide specifics of the investigation; however, she shed light on her extended tenure within the Royal Household.

Originally intending to serve for only six months, Cohen remained for a year and a half due to difficulties in finding a suitable replacement.

Furthermore, she revealed that her designated successor accompanied Harry and Meghan on their tour of Africa but subsequently resigned during the trip.
