Thomas Markle / Meghan Markle
Today, the Supreme Court of England has examined the case of Meghan Markle, 38, against the British tabloids. Some of them already qualify this historic trial and do not know what will be the result. In any case, the trial seems to further open the world to the troubled relationship of the Duchess of Sussex and her 75-year-old father, Thomas Markle.
The wife of Prince Harry, aged 35, remember, sued the editor of the tabloid The Mail on Sunday because of the publication of his letter sent to his father in August 2018. The duchess accuses the press of raping the copyright, as well as privacy and data protection laws.
Today’s meeting was videotaped due to the coronavirus pandemic, but the Duke and Duchess of Sussex most likely watched from Los Angeles and his lawyer, David Sherborne, represent their interests. By the way, he assured the judge that Meghan Markle was ready to act as a witness and testify in the future, if necessary.
Megan accuses members of the press of “persecuting, humiliating, exploiting” her father and manipulating him. At the same time, the lawyer on Mail on Sunday said that she had not spoken with her father for two years, so she could not know for sure whether he wanted to share information with the press or not. After today’s meeting, which lasted six hours, it became clear that Meghan Markle and Thomas Markle could meet face to face in court (for the first time in more than two years) to testify one against each other.

The editor of Mail on Sunday has denied the allegation that Megan’s letter was edited by his subordinates. In addition, he stated that four days before the publication under discussion, the publication People had informed its readers of this letter with reference to the friends of the Duchess – that is, directly or indirectly, that she would have allowed to those around him violating the secret of his private life. It seemed to Thomas Markle that the People’s publication belittled him, so, according to The Mail on Sunday, he was forced to defend himself in the press. Megan’s lawyer told the court that she was unaware of the actions of People’s informants. It is likely that these five friends who informed People of the contents of the letter will also be forced to testify in court.
