The author of a new royal book claims on Good Morning Britain that anxious royal servants felt sick working with the Sussexes. Prior to meetings with Meghan Markle, staff was shaken and tormented with anxiety, Valentine Low said. The allegations were made in an interview with Susanna Reid, the host of Good Morning Britain, by the Times royal correspondent and author of the shocking new royal book "Courtiers: The Hidden Power Behind the Crown." In his latest book, he referenced claims that a "paranoid" Prince Harry would do 'loyalty tests" on palace staff to see if they were still "fighting for him."

The journalist also explained to the ITV morning show how palace staff who worked with the Sussexes when they were still active royals formed the Sussex Survivors Club. Susanna, the Good Morning Britain host, asked him if the staff formed the group, and he replied, ‘Absolutely, yes.’ Susanna asked, “What did they survive?” to which he said, “I think it was a very difficult experience for some of them. As I revealed last year, there were allegations that Meghan bullied staff. People talked to me of people being completely destroyed. I've heard people at the time, faced with a possible encounter with Meghan, saying things like 'I feel sick' or 'I'm shaking' – extraordinary things for an employee to say about the prospect of seeing their employer in half-an-hour.”

Low continued by claiming that the courtiers may have played a role in the couple's contentious 'Megxit' separation from their front-line royal responsibilities in January 2020. He said, “There is a way in which the courtiers are to blame. So the people around them were doing their best, these were people who believed in Harry and Meghan and they wanted to help.” "But there were signs early on, in the first year or so of their marriage, there were signs of how unhappy Harry and Meghan were. And no one really did anything about that. No one picked it up, no one flagged it up and there were no big discussions with the most senior courtiers in the institution,” he added.

The author also discussed allegations that Prince Harry had run "loyalty tests" on employees on Good Morning Britain. He said, “What Harry and Meghan wanted and what the Royal family, what the Queen felt able to give, I don't think there was ever a meeting point. This was brewing for a long time - before Meghan. Harry had this obsession with the media. He was so very unhappy.”
