Thomas Markle would like to know the names of the five friends of Meghan Markle who leaked excerpts from her letter. The father of the duchess wants to take legal action against them

Thomas Markle refuses to admit defeat! For two years, Meghan Markle’s father has been fighting a battle to get out what he believes to be his truth. To understand the reasons for his anger, we must go back to February 2019. Ulcerated by the revelations made by five friends of Meghan Markle to People magazine, concerning a letter that had been addressed to him by his daughter a year earlier, Thomas Markle had retaliated by making public excerpts of the famous document.

“I decided to publish part of the letter because of the article written by friends of Meghan in People magazine. I had to defend myself,” he justified to the Mail Online, a few months after the publication. Far from stopping there, Thomas Markle is now firmly determined to discover the identity of his daughter’s friends. “I’m trying to get the names and I’m going to take legal action,” he told the Sunday People on Saturday, March 27.

Meghan Markle’s father would like to sue them for defamation. The article, which he describes as “false”, would paint a picture of a man “dishonest” and “heartless”. What Thomas Markle categorically denies. “Lies have been told about me, this is defamation,” he told the British newspaper. Before specifying that the magazine People “could be held responsible” as “the people who gave the information”. Problem is that “no one seems to want to reveal their names”. One thing is certain, Thomas Markle does not intend to give up. He also asked for an interview with Oprah Winfrey to give his version of events.

A victory for Meghan Markle

Meghan Markle, meanwhile, has won a first battle in the soap opera around her letter to her father. The wife of Prince Harry has, in fact, won her lawsuit for “invasion of privacy” for “illegal publication of a private letter” against Associated Newspapers, press group publisher of the tabloids Daily Mail, Mail on Sunday, Mail Online, as we reported last February. So, if the mother of little Archie, pregnant with her second child, has escaped the face-to-face so feared with his father, the legal war is not quite over for all that.
