her estranged dad will likely be a key witness against her in
an upcoming court case, legal papers reveal.
The Duchess of Sussex, 38, is suing the Mail on Sunday newspaper
in the UK for printing a letter she wrote to her father, Thomas
Markle, for not attending her May 2018 royal wedding to Prince
Her 75-year-old father now plans to be the key witness
testifying on behalf of the paper, according to new documents
filed in Londons High Court.
Potentially adding to the PR nightmare he has already caused his
daughter, Thomas Markle will help prove that the Duchess was
behind a smear campaign against him in the run-up to her
wedding, the documents claim.
Her father has already provided the papers lawyers with a
series of text messages he says were exchanged in early 2018 as
rumors swirled over whether he would be present for his
daughters big day.
They include one that appears to be an angry exchange with
Prince Harry when Markle claimed he was rushed to a hospital for
emergency heart surgery and could not fly to the UK on health

protection law by publishing her letter.

had a weighty right to tell his version of what had happened
between himself and his daughter, including the contents of the
Her father says he only released the letter to highlight the
misleading, one-sided picture his daughter was painting about
their broken relationship, according to the reports.
If the case goes before a judge, the Mail said it would ask for
Meghan to hand over all communications in which she had caused
or permitted her friends to provide information about her to the
media or to seek to influence what is published about her.
The paper also argues that royals generate and rely on
publicity about themselves and their lives in order to maintain
the privileged positions they hold and to promote themselves,
according to the docs.
The Sussexes have said they will fund the legal proceedings
privately, the Mail said.
The legal development comes in the middle of the Megxit
firestorm, with the Duchess reportedly the one pushing to quit
the royal family because it was not working for her, leaving
Meghan was spotted in Canada Tuesday for the first time since
the crisis began for a visit at the Downtown Eastside Womens
Centre in Vancouver to discuss issues affecting women in one of
the citys poorest neighborhoods.
