At one point Meghan is claimed to have lost her temper with an assistant and a hot drink was thrown.

A source said: “The Australia tour is one of the most important in the royal world but there have long been allegations of rows with staff.

“If these assistants come forward it will form the centre of the Palace’s bullying probe. It was a critical time.”

The allegations also include Meghan becoming upset at being given only a wing of the Australian Governor’s mansion to stay in, rather than the entire property.

A month after the tour, the couple’s first as a royal couple, Meghan’s personal assistant Melissa Toubati resigned.

She was the second member of her staff to quit within a year.

The couple’s former press secretary Jason Knauf is then said to have emailed a senior aide to Prince William to complain: “I am very concerned that the Duchess was able to bully two PAs out of the household in the past year.”

Meghan denies allegations of bullying.
