It has also claimed that the letter simply recites "pre-existing facts and admonishment" including the Duchess's views of Mr Markle and his conduct, and is therefore not her "own intellectual creation".

Meghan Markle, who is fighting a privacy case against news website the Mail who published parts of her father's private letter in 2019, has now revealed to the court that she sought guidance from two senior royals. She is now suing a British publisher for releasing parts of the article.

According to a report in The Guardian, part of Meghan's document submitted in court reads, "In accordance with the advice that she (Meghan) had received from the two members of the royal family, the claimant made a decision to write a private letter to her father in an attempt to get him to stop talking to the press". Indeed, Prince Harry's wife has just brought the royal family into their legal battle.


The document said Jason Knauf was required by "palace protocol" to inform more senior aides in the royal households that Meghan was going to write to her father.

The documents also state that in passing along this information, Meghan was intent on showing her side of the story and ultimately gave a friend permission to communicate with Carolyn and Omid.

"It was a private letter written and sent by the claimant to her father, on the advice of senior members of the royal family, in an attempt to protect her family, including her new family members, from further media intrusion and embarrassment to the institution".


Meghan, an American actress and star of TV legal drama "Suits", married Harry, a grandson of Queen Elizabeth II, in a lavish ceremony at Windsor Castle in May 2018.

The wife of Prince Harry is now suing The Mail on Sunday, a United Kingdom newspaper, for breach of privacy for printing out extracts of a handwritten letter she had sent to her estranged father back in 2018. Now that the couple has settled comfortably in their Santa Barbara home post-Megxit, rumors have circulated that the Sussexes may be expecting their second child.

The filed documents came as a response to a recent court ruling which allowed The Mail on Sunday to use extracts from the Finding Freedom in its defence against Meghan Markle's legal action. "The lawyers insist though, "[Meghan] does not know to what extent or in what terms this one item of information concerning her communications with her father was shared with the authors". The reason behind her sharing was her father, Thomas Markle's claims about her cutting him out of her life would be mentioned in the book.


A 10-day trial scheduled for January was recently postponed for at least nine months after the Duchess won a delay on confidential grounds.
