When asked about reports of a “conspiracy” against the couple by Buckingham Palace and the media, Newton said it was unfounded.
“We had a lot of dealings with the press officers for Harry and Meghan back then, and I particularly remember some of my dealings with them when they were still in the family,” she said.
Newton added: “Never have I been given a negative story about other members of the royal family, to take care of William and Kate for example.
“Often we’ve received officially more positive stories about Harry and Meghan from royal history.”
She continued, “The idea that we’ve always preferred William and Kate or the other royals over them is just not true.”
