Before British justice, Megan Markle admitted to providing information to the authors of an unofficial autobiography about her and her husband, Prince Harry. The Duchess apologized in court.
Megan Markley has admitted in British courts that she provided information to the authors of an unofficial autobiography about herself and her husband Prince Harry, contrary to what she had previously pointed out in the case against the British tabloid.
The 40-year-old American actress won her privacy infringement lawsuit against Mail on Sunday in February. He is accused of publishing a letter written in 2018 in which he asked his father, Thomas Markle, 77, to stop stinging and lying in the media about their broken relationship.
During the appeal, which was examined until Thursday in London, the widely circulated tabloid is now opposing the decision. The Duchess of Sussex’s allegations appear to have been weakened by the testimony of Jason Knauf, the couple’s former communications secretary, who is now in California.
“I apologize in court”
The mail, which brings water to the Sunday Mill, wanted to prove that Megan Markle continued to try to influence public opinion, the latter claiming to have provided personal information on behalf of the couple to the authors of the royal couple’s unofficial autobiography, “Finding Freedom.” According to him, the book project is “routinely discussed” and “directly with the Duchess and by email”.
In written testimony given in court, Megan admitted to being involved in writing the book – which she and her husband had always denied – and apologized for misleading the court without first mentioning it. “I acknowledge that Mr. Knauf provided the information to the authors and that he did so to the best of my knowledge,” he explains, however, adding that “the amount of information he shared is unknown.”
“I apologize in court for not remembering these exchanges at the time,” the Duchess continues. Ms Markle, however, argued that the information shared with the authors was “far removed from the most comprehensive personal information.”
Prince Harry, 37, the sixth in line to the British crown, has repeatedly condemned media pressure on his couple and was the main reason for his departure from the royal family, which has been in effect since April 2020. The British tabloids, often mercilessly upon the Duchess, made a great change by their backpadling. The Sun devoted its first page to Megan’s cartoon, nicknamed “Mamdam Stunned”, referring to the “Sir, Madam” children’s book series on Thursday.
