Just when you think things can’t get any worst for Meghan Markle, another bombshell allegation pops up on the horizon…

This time, the pregnant former royal has been accused of accepting a pricey gift from a Saudi prince accused of murder.

Meghan made headlines when UK publication The Times alleged she wore a pair of diamond earrings, a wedding gift from Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman of Saudi Arabia, during her 2018 trip abroad with Prince Harry to a number of countries including Australia, New Zealand, Togo and Fiji.

The Saudi ruler has been publicly linked to the murder of US journo Jamal Khashoggi, who was a strong critic of him, and is currently facing criminal charges for his various alleged crimes against humanity, including the alleged torture and detention of dozens of journalists in the country.

Meghan wore the earrings to a state dinner in Fiji in late October 2018, a mere 3 weeks after Khashoggi’s brutal murder at a Saudi embassy in Turkey earlier that month.

However, according to reports, the royal told the press that she had “borrowed” the jewellry from the Royal Family

Meghan’s representatives have since denied the damning reports, telling The Times that they are “spurious allegations regarding the use of gifts loaned to the duchess by the crown”.

Do you think the allegations are true or is it just another sensational story concocted against the royal couple?
