Earlier this year, when Meghan Markle won her privacy lawsuit against the Mail on Sunday newspaper in a pre-trial summary judgement, the Duchess of Sussex was satisfied with a job well done against her nemesis – the British press.
But recently, the publication’s parent company, which is aggressively seeking to overturn the decision in the Court of Appeal, hit back with a damning new witness testimony from Jason Knauf, Prince Harry and Meghan’s former communications director and close confidant.
Now, it could be the bombshell evidence that may bring her carefully curated world crumbling down.
The Mail on Sunday contends that they were not wrong to publish a letter written by Meghan to her father, Thomas Markle Sr. They argue that Meghan, 40, wrote it knowing that Thomas Sr would ultimately share it publicly – something Meghan has vehemently denied.
However, Jason shared correspondence between himself and Meghan from when she was still living in the UK. In it, she describes in detail how she addressed the handwritten letter to “Daddy” because it will “pull at the heartstrings” in the likely event it would be made public.
Meghan also described how she carefully numbered each page and carried sentences to following pages so it couldn’t be taken out of context if it fell into media hands.
