The new about Meghan Markle’ lawsuit

This should greatly displease Kate Middleton and Prince William. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge find themselves unwillingly thrust into the middle of Meghan Markle’s lawsuit against British tabloids.

In August 2018, Meghan Markle wrote a letter to her father. In writing it, the Duchess was not alone.Over the years, the relationship between Meghan Markle and her father, Thomas Markle, has deteriorated.

A few months after saying “yes” to Prince Harry, the Duchess decided to send a handwritten letter to the man who raised her. The letter was then revealed by the recipient to the media. The beginning of a new legal battle for Archie’s mother: she filed a lawsuit against the Mail on Sunday and Mail Online for having spread snippets of it.revealed by the addressee to the media. The beginning of a new legal battle for Archie’s mom: she filed a lawsuit against the Mail on Sunday and Mail Online for broadcasting snippets of it.

In writing these words, Meghan Markle seemed to be trying to ease tensions. So, to ensure that it was flawless, she wouldn’t have written it alone: she would have gotten help from Kensington Palace. As the lawyers for the Mail on Sunday and MailOnline, reported by The Mirror, said, the Duchess was helped by the Palace’s assistants. As a result, the letter loses the private and confidential character it defends. They also claim that the letter was part of “a media strategy to improve or strengthen her image, as it was likely to be disclosed in public”.

In the letter, Meghan Markle blames her father for breaking her heart

In the letter, Meghan Markle criticized, among other things, her father for not warning her of her absence at her wedding. “In the media, you said you called me to tell me that you weren’t coming to my wedding. You never did,” she wrote. She also told him that his “actions” had “broken her heart into a thousand pieces,” before imploring him to stop speaking out in the media so that she could live her new life “in peace. Indeed, Thomas Markle and other members of his family have repeatedly attacked Kate Middleton’s sister-in-law on several occasions publicly

The twists and turns continue in the lawsuit between Meghan Markle and the Mail on Sunday. Kate Middleton and Prince William are unwillingly caught in the middle of this court case. This is unlikely to help the already complicated relations between Sussex and Cambridge.

As a reminder, in 2019, the Duchess decided to sue Associated Newspapers Limited, the publisher of the British tabloid, after the publication of excerpts from a private letter sent to her father in August 2018. A lawsuit frowned upon by the royal family.

Meghan Markle, who is suing the press group for breach of privacy, infringement of copyright and misuse of personal data, is not going to back down. Except that new revelations are now coming to undermine her case. To obtain a conviction on copyright infringement, Prince Harry’s wife must be the author of the letter. Logic.

But the lawyers of Associated Newspapers Limited claim that the letter is not his “own intellectual creation”. This could change the course of the case. In court documents consulted by the Mirror, they explain that the Duchess called upon the communication service of Kensington Palace to help her write her letter, and more specifically to a relative of Kate and William.

Kate and William splashed

Jason Knauf, then press attaché at the palace, is said to have helped draft Meghan Markle’s letter to her father. The latter would have simply copied her work. At the time, the young man had been the spokesman for Prince Harry, Prince William and Kate Middleton for many years.

But when the two couples separated their offices, he remained in the Cambridge camp. In March 2019, Jason Knauf was promoted to Senior Advisor to the Duke and Duchess before being propelled to head the couple’s Royal Foundation. Will this former collaborator of Harry’s, still close to Kate and William, become the centerpiece of the lawsuit brought by Meghan Markle? The Duchess’s lawyers continue to claim that she wrote the letter to her father.
