One of Meghan Markle's close friends has hit back at bullying allegations and come out in support of the royal.
Lindsay Roth said the Duchess of Sussex's "M.O. has always been kindness" and lavished praise on her in an Instagram post.
The pair initially met at Northwestern University in Illinois, the US.
Meghan was one of Lindsay's bridesmaids at her 2016 wedding in Greece, and they have pictured on nights out and holidays together.
On Thursday, March 4, Lindsay a rebuttal on Instagram to bullying allegations that have surfaced against Meghan.
She wrote: "Meg’s M.O. has always been kindness; goodwill runs in her bones. I know this to be true after 22 years of very close friendship.
"I have seen firsthand how she treats her friends and their families, and her colleagues.
"If she’s driving with you in the passenger seat, she will fling her right arm in front of you at the slightest bump in a gesture of love to ensure your safety.
"If you have a specific goal, she will help you get there, and your passions will become hers on your behalf."
Lindsay insisted that Meghan still has these qualities, calling her an “altruistic, magnanimous friend”.
Reports in The Times this week suggested the Duchess of Sussex faced a bullying complaint from her time in Kensington Palace.
Meghan denies the allegations, with a spokesman saying she was "saddened" by the reports.
The allegations claim Meghan drove two personal assistants out of the household and undermined the confidence of a third member of staff.
The royal lived with Prince Harry at the Palace for nearly a year after their wedding in May 2018.
Meghan's spokesman said it was the "latest attack on her character, particularly as someone who has been the target of bullying herself and is deeply committed to supporting those who have experienced pain and trauma".
On Wednesday, March 3, Buckingham Palace said it would investigate the allegations.
Its statement read: “We are clearly very concerned about allegations in The Times following claims made by former staff of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
