A CHARITY founder who did an awkward curtsey for Meghan Markle was forced to delete a tweet today saying the duchess should air her grievances "privately".

Kate Robertson, the co-founder of One Young World, slammed Meghan for her comments about the Royal Family ahead of the duchess's explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Ms Robertson tweeted: "Not having any of it. The Queen is the world's most stunning example of duty and service.

"The Sussexes have grievances but should sort out in person privately.

"Hurting the Queen in public is really low."

The tweet was shared by Omid Scobie, a friend of Meghan's who co-wrote her biography Finding Freedom.

Hours later, Ms Robertson was forced to delete her tweet after being bombarded by fans of the duchess.

One said: "Where is your value Kate and support to young people?"

Another tweeted: "You deleted this but us young people still want to know what you meant. Should Meghan Markle privately suffer and allow her abusers to publicly lie, defame and assassinate her character?"

Ms Robertson then wrote: "I am so sorry. I sent a tweet this morning that was unduly critical of people I admire, care about and have worked with for a long time.

"People have called me out on it and they were right to do so – we should all choose to contribute to a culture of kindness.

"Everyone has the right to tell their story – that's what our work is about. This was a good lesson: commenting on people's personal lives is wrong.

"I'm truly sorry."

Some accused Mr Scobie of an "organised pile on" by sharing Ms Robertson's tweet.

One wrote: "How dare you sit there and scream about bullying and you shame this woman into deleting her tweet?"

Meghan has supported Ms Robertson's charity for years, and the pair have appeared on stage together.

They shared an awkward moment on stage in 2019, when Ms Robertson attempted to curtsey to the duchess before they hugged.

In a preview of her interview with Oprah, the host asked how Meghan felt about “the Palace hearing you speak your truth.”

Meghan replied: “I don't know how they could expect that after all of this time we would still just be silent if there is an active role that The Firm is playing in perpetuating falsehoods about us.”

The interview comes as staff members accuse Meghan of “driving out” two personal assistants and a former aide called her and Prince Harry “outrageous bullies.”

The duchess is also accused of saying "it's not my job to coddle people" after aides were allegedly humiliated and tearing up over her "difficult demands."
