Meghan Markle drags the royal family into 'deeply painful' privacy row

Meghan Markle Admits To Using A Friend To Communicate & Give Information To 'Finding Freedom' Amid Court Case

The new court documents reveal that the Duchess sought advice from two senior members of the royal family about how to respond to her father, which prompted her to write the letter at the centre of the letter battle.

The Duchess confided in two senior royal family members about "how best to address the situation".

In documents from Meghan Markle's lawyers revealed Wednesday in her privacy row, it was claimed the former "Suits" star "wanted to follow protocol" on how to deal with media coverage surrounding her father, who admitted to lying to about posing for paparazzi photos which he staged in a bid to improve his image.

The newspaper also claims that the Duchess has cooperated with the Finding Freedom authors and allowed them to publish extracts from her letter to Thomas, something her father did in relation to the British tabloid.

In the documents submitted to the court, Megan had to admit that she passed on personal information to the authors of the book "In Search of Freedom: Harry, Meghan and the Creation of the Modern Royal Family" Omid Scobie and Carolyn Duran. Mr Knauf was responsible for telling other senior members of the royal households of the plan, the documents reveal.

It adds: "Accordingly, she indicated to a person whom she knew had already been approached by the authors that the true position as above. could be communicated to the authors to prevent any further misrepresentation".

Once she had chose to write it, she informed her close confidante Jason Knauf, Kensington Palace communications secretary at the time, who had been speaking to Mr Markle on a regular basis in the run-up to her wedding.

Meghan Markle has been estranged from her father, Thomas Markle, since tying the knot to Prince Harry in a lavish ceremony in 2018.

The amended reply from Meghan's legal team stated the duchess shared a draft - of the notes she spent many hours writing on her iPhone over several weeks - with Harry and Mr Knauf.

Documents lodged with the High Court by ANL this week claim Mr Knauf "and/or" the Kensington Palace communications team "contributed" to a draft of the letter.

The Duchess' legal team also denies the idea that she and Harry had final approval of Finding Freedom's contents, and refutes the rumors that they have received financial aid from taxpayer funds.

The document said: "She shared a draft of that draft with her husband and Mr Knauf for support, as this was a deeply painful process that they lived through with her".

The paper's lawyers argue the book showed Meghan intended some private details to become public, including the letter, as part of a media campaign to portray her in a positive light.

Last month, High Court judge Mark Warby agreed to a request by Meghan to postpone the trial of the case by about nine months, from January until fall 2021.
