British journalist Camilla Tominey has revealed that her children have received death threats following her critical coverage of Meghan Markle.

The 42-year-old royal commentator, who often appears on This Morning to chime in on the latest royal headlines, took to social media on Wednesday, June 23, to share the negative impact of her reportage. Tominey's revelation came as a response to a social media user who claimed she's "obsessed" with the Duchess of Sussex, Entertainment Daily reported.

Meghan’s feud with royals, naivety pre-marriage ‘mainly Harry’s fault’, says expert: ‘He’s not the sharpest guy’

“@CamillaTominey you’re obsessed with #Meghan, you go around spreading lies about her and her family, she lives in your vile jealous head 24/7. You are the troll. You’ll never be as important or as fabulous, or as dignified as Meghan, and it tortures you," the user tweeted, adding the hashtag, “Camilla Tominey Is A Liar."

The comment didn't go unnoticed by Tominey, who responded to the accusation. “I have received a death threat against my children today – for which I hold people like you partly responsible," she wrote. “Stop spreading online hate and sowing division in the same of ‘progressiveness’. You are a giant hypocrite.”


The royal expert also touched on the alleged threats in a separate message. She shared a screenshot of her email account, featuring a message about her children's safety. “We must call out online hate when we see it, which is why I am posting this death threat, sent to my website this morning in the name of #HarryandMeghan ‘fandom,'" Tominey added. “Never be cowed by these abject hypocrites. Fight for the right to disagree agreeably #stoponlinehate.”


Her followers subsequently inundated the platform with messages of support. "Sorry to read that, Camilla. No journalist deserves that for simply doing their job," one tweeted. 

"This is just ridiculous how can these people preach about kindness and then act so vile don't let them get you down for telling the actual truth most sane people can see through this whole their truth crap," another chimed in.

"Several have been bullied, silenced (and fired) hope you aren't going to let it get to you. No journalist is perfect and each has a right to their opinion - even if I don't agree with it. This attack is horrible. One can see where it comes from. Keep your chin up and carry on," a third added.

Meghan Markle bullying claims

The Duchess of Sussex's conduct as a senior member of the Royal Family has often been questioned. Last week, MEAWW reported how royal author Robert Lacey claimed in his new book 'Battle of the Brothers' that Prince William split his household from Prince Harry's after a heated phone exchange over claims that Meghan was bullying palace staff in 2018.

According to the book, a friend of the Sussexes said that "William threw Harry out" after the phone call, which allegedly abruptly concluded with the Duke of Sussex hanging up on his elder brother. William suspected Meghan was "hostile" to the royal system and that she planned to leave the monarchy and return to America from the very start, the book claims.

According to the staff quoted in the book, Meghan often "played the victim, but was a bully" and treated courtiers rather poorly. She allegedly influenced Harry as well, who started "screaming" at his staff shortly after Meghan entered the household, as per the book. It's worth noting that the Sussexes have strongly denied the bullying allegations.

In 'Battle of the Brothers', Lacey wrote that William allegedly told a friend he thought Meghan had an "agenda" and that he felt "hurt" and "betrayed" by the rift. He also told that friend his wife Kate "had been wary of Meghan from the start," the book states.
