Meghan Markle has been defended from bullying accusations made against her.

The Duchess of Sussex, who will speak to Oprah Winfrey alongside her husband Prince Harry in an interview airing this weekend, is at the centre of a Buckingham Palace investigation that she bullied royal staff while the couple were living at Kensington Palace following a report in The Times.

Her spokesman has said Meghan is "saddened" by the "latest attack on her character" and "she is determined to continue her work building compassion around the world".

The 39-year-old's former colleagues at TV series Suits have now defended her against the claims.

Show creator Aaron Korsh has said Meghan "is not a monster" and is just a woman trying to "make her way in an unimaginable situation".

He tweeted: "Meghan Markle is not a monster. She's a strong woman with a kind heart who's trying to make her way in an unimaginable situation. I don't know the specifics of some incident from years ago but if late night emails makes you a horrible person, then I'm going to hell 50 times over."

In a series of tweets, her former co-star Patrick J Adams condemned the royal family for "promoting and amplifying" the bullying claims against her when she and Harry were "forced to flee" the UK to protect their health.

He wrote: "It sickened me to read the endless racist, slanderous, clickbaiting vitriol spewed in her direction from all manner of media across the UK and the world but I also knew that Meghan was stronger than people realized or understood and they would regret underestimating her.

"And then they welcomed Archie. And on any sort of decent planet that would be a time to stop sharpening the knives and let these two people enjoy the magical early months and years of starting a family. But we don't live on that planet and instead the hunt continued.

"It's OBSCENE that the Royal Family, who's newest member is currently GROWING INSIDE OF HER, is promoting and amplifying accusations of 'bullying' against a woman who herself was basically forced to flea the UK in order protect her family and her own mental health."
