Meghan Markle Gets Her Claws In And Hires Diana’s Former Lawyer…

Markle’s trial against the Associated Newspaper group began on 24 April on charges that included violating her privacy by publishing extracts from a letter she had sent to her father. In her legal battle, the Duchess of Cambridge enlisted the services of David Sherborne, a lawyer who had also worked for Lady Diana.

Meghan Markle’s war against the tabloids continues. On 24 April, her trial against the Associated Newspapers group (also known as DMG Media), publisher of the Daily Mail and the Mail on Sunday, opened.

The preliminary hearing was held in virtual confinement. The reason for this litigation? In February 2019, Mail on Sunday published excerpts from a letter from the Duchess of Sussex, sent to her father, Thomas Markle, in August 2018.

Believing that the letter was used to paint a negative picture of her, Prince Harry’s wife decided to take the case to court. She is suing the group for breach of privacy, copyright infringement and misuse of personal data. She is also claiming damages. If successful, these sums will go to associations fighting against harassment.

EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT HIS DEFENSE

And to help herself in this legal battle, Meghan Markle has surrounded herself with a shock team. The 38-year-old called in David Sherborne, a leading media lawyer. A member of the renowned law firm Shillings, the tenor of the bar had defended Meghan’s mother-in-law, Lady Diana, in a previous case, as Hello! Magazine recalls. Very well known in the field, he has also pleaded for many celebrities, including Kate Moss, Paul McCartney and Donald Trump.

The Duchess of Sussex relies on hard evidence to strengthen her defence. For example, on April 20, Archie’s mother’s lawyer uncovered text messages sent by her client to Thomas Markle. The goal: to prove that Meghan Markle tried to reconnect with her father. Messages that would have been in vain since the latter didn’t want to hear anything. Originally, Thomas Markle wanted to testify against his daughter at this high-profile trial. But the latter preferred to attack the press group, which is more solvent in the event of victory in court.
