Meghan Markle suffers agonising ‘back and forth’ in legal battle amid new revelations

236

MEGHAN MARKLE’s court case may have been dealt a major blow with royal commentators explaining how the latest developments may impact on the Duchess’s legal proceedings.

Royally Obsessed podcast hosts Roberta Fiorito and Rachel Bowie explained why this news was impacting the proceedings.

Ms Fiorito told listeners: “My low this week has been all the back-and-forth about Finding Freedom.

“So we just heard that Meghan did allow an acquaintance to give the true position to the authors.

“It just feels weird. The clarification is only about the letter she wrote to her dad.”

She continued: “It is not about any of the other details in the book.

“I think it’s a private letter.

“And that it should never have been published obviously.

“It just stinks to have this all brought up again.”

Ms Bowie added: “She acted in a way similar to Diana, with a third party getting involved with the authors.

“It is really interesting.

“And we’ll have to just see how it all plays out.”

She added: “But it is just sad that she has to relive all of this over and over again for this case.”

The Duchess is suing Associated Newspapers over five articles published that included contents of a private letter she sent to her father in August 2018 without her permission.

The publisher denies allegations of wrongdoing.

The trial, which was originally due to take place in January, has now been delayed until autumn 2021.

High Court judge Mr Justice Warby granted the delay, saying: “The right decision in all the circumstances is to grant the application to adjourn.

“That means that the trial date of January 11 2021 will be vacated and the trial will be re-fixed for a new date in the autumn.”
