And that wasn't all. Here's the full story...
As you will all know, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's tell-all interview with Oprah is set to air at the end of this week.
But it seems that before they tell-all, a royal aide has something to reveal...
According to the aide, Meghan Markle left an "employee shaking with fear"...

Now, this whirlwind love story began back in 2016.
When Suits actress Meghan Markle started dating Prince Harry, her career as an actress seemed to be instantly swapped for a life fulfilling royal duties.
They married in May 2018...
Making Meghan an official part of the royal family.
The couple announced their pregnancy shortly after the wedding...
However, though the family seemed to radiate with happiness...
This was far from the case behind the scenes as Meghan was relentlessly attacked by the British press and public.
Anything she did or said...
via: GettyThe British media had something to say about it. Whether she was being branded as a diva, a control-freak, a "monarchy ruiner," and even a bad mother, Meghan received it all.
And, even though Meghan bravely put a smile on her face throughout it all...
There was absolutely no doubt that she was struggling.
This is what lead to the couple to make the bold decision to step down from royal duties in January 2020.
In a joint statement via Instagram, Harry and Meghan said that they wanted "a normal upbringing for their child" and they felt that spending their time between the U.K. and America would be much more appropriate for their family environment.
This came as a huge shock worldwide...
But nobody was more shocked than those in the royal family.
Apparently, the Queen wasn't notified of Harry and Meghan's plans to step down from the family until after their announcement on social media.
Her Majesty published a statement shortly afterward, which read:
"Discussions with The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are at an early stage. We understand their desire to take a different approach, but these are complicated issues that will take time to work through."
Harry's relationship with his brother William also came under strain following his departure, reports at the time claimed.
via: GettyThe future King of England was reported to have distanced himself from Harry and Meghan, with claims surfacing that the pair didn't speak for months.
Even though the family is now residing in Los Angeles...
via: GettyMeghan and Harry are still receiving a lot of heat from the British press for "breaking up the royal family."
The pair also revealed that they will be venturing into the world of TV and rumors began to surface that they had signed a multi-million dollar Netflix deal...
And not only that...
But their joint-biography, Finding Freedom, was a huge success in many parts of the world - especially here in the United States.
The pair seem to be living the lives they've always wanted in L.A...

And to make things even more exciting, they announced on Valentine's Day that they're expecting their second child together with this photoshoot.
But the happiness among fans wasn't to last...
As last month, it was announced that Harry and Meghan will not be returning - officially - as working members of the royal family.
A statement from Buckingham Palace said the royals were "saddened by their decision" but that Harry and Meghan "remain much-loved members of the family."
"Following conversations with The Duke, The Queen has written confirming that in stepping away from the work of The Royal Family it is not possible to continue with the responsibilities and duties that come with a life of public service," the statement read.
"The honorary military appointments and Royal patronages held by The Duke and Duchess will therefore be returned to Her Majesty, before being redistributed among working members of The Royal Family."
Predictably, the announcement triggered a media storm...

And among all of the love and support came the negativity and unbelievable surges of criticism.
In the weeks following their dramatic departure, the couple remained relatively under the radar...
Until Harry took part in a widely televised interview with friend and host, James Corden, last week.
The royal appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden in his first public interview since stepping down to chat about his new life in L.A.
He was interviewed by Corden on an open-top tour bus - all while drinking tea, of course - as he opened up about what life has been like for him, Meghan, and Archie in the last year.
Here, Harry also revealed - for the first time - the reason he and Meghan stepped away from the royal family.
When asked, "what made you walk away from the royal family?", Harry politely corrected him by saying, "I didn't walk away."
"It was stepping back rather than stepping down. It was a really difficult environment that I think a lot of people saw... we all know what the British press can be like! And it was destroying my mental health, I was like 'this is toxic!'"
"I did what any husband and father would do."
"I needed to get my family out of there!" he then said.
"But we never walked away. And as far as I'm concerned whatever decisions are made on that side, I will never walk away. I will always be contributing but my life is public service, so wherever I am in the world it's going to be the same thing."
"My life is always going to be about public service and Meghan signed up for that."
"The 2 of us enjoy doing that and trying to bring compassion and try to make people happy, and try to change the world in any small way we can," he explained.
And now, ahead of Meghan and Harry's tell-all interview with Oprah, rumors are flying again.
Oprah With Meghan and Harry: A CBS Primetime Special will air on Sunday, March 7 at 8 P.M. EST on CBS. https://t.co/XEa7GZ1hVA— Duchess Meg (@Duchess Meg)1613409015.0
As a royal aide has claimed that Meghan Markle left an employee "shaking with fear"...
A source told The Times that Meghan reportedly drove 2 personal assistants out of the household and undermined the confidence of a third.
Jason Knauf, former communications assistant for the couple, allegedly submitted the complaint in October 2018 to protect palace staff who were allegedly coming under pressure from the duchess.
According to The Times, an aide feared that a row may erupt over whether the Duchess had been told that the media would be present at an event.
With them saying: "I feel terrified. I can't stop shaking."
Another source also explained to The Times: "There were a lot of broken people. Young women were broken by their behaviour."
While an ex-employee alleged they'd been personally "humiliated" by Meghan.
As per The Sun, Meghan denies all allegations of bullying.
With a spokesman noting that she was "saddened by this latest attack on her character."
Stressing she "is deeply committed to supporting those who have experienced pain and trauma."
