Meghan Markle has been hitting the headlines since news about her anticipated interview with media mogul Oprah Winfrey was announced.
However, she has received more criticism from the British press, accusing her of shaking up things with the royal family.
According to The British Times, Markle was accused of bullying by one of her close advisors, press secretary Jason Knauf.
It is reported that Markle’s treatment of staff while at Kensington Palace made two personal assistants leave the royalty household.
Knauf, in his report said that the former Duchess of Sussex humiliated members of the staff and even subjected them to cruelty and manipulation among other things.
However, her former Suits actor mate came out in her defence and tried to caution critics against going after Markle.
Patrick Adams used his social media to defend his friend and even called the royalty an institution that has outlived its time.
It is important to note that Adams and Markle played as lovers in the legal drama series. He played the roll of Mike Ross while she played as Rachel Zane. Markle however left the show after the seventh season.
This is what Adams had to say concerning accusations levelled up against the mother of one:
''Meghan Markle and I spent the better part of a decade working together on Suits. From day one she was an enthusiastic, kind, cooperative, giving, joyful and supportive member of our television family. She remained that person and colleague as fame, prestige and power accrued.
She has always been a powerful woman with a deep sense of morality and a fierce work ethic and has never been afraid to speak up, be heard and defend herself and those she holds dear. Like the rest of the world, I have watched her navigate the last few years in astonishment.''
Here is a series of all his posts:
However, Markle has been criticised by the British press ever since she married Prince Harry.
The two resigned from their royal duties permanently and relocated to the United States. They are also expecting their baby number two.
Here are some of the comments about Adams defending Markle:
''Mike Ross will always have Rachel’s back no matter what.''
''What ridiculous and childish theatre this is.''
''Two experiences with her can exist at the same time, one person's truth is only their perception. She feels her experiences were negative, others feel their experiences with her were negative. Neither are wrong.''

''I did not see any racism directed at Meghan but I agree that the British press started a witch hunt. Please note it was not the British people. We wanted to get to know Meghan better. All very sad but I hope she and Harry have found their happy place.''
