Meghan tries to prevent ‘friends’ being named in suit

A body language expert says Prince Harry looked

While speaking with British outlet iNews, Martin Luther King III said he was "greatly disappointed" with the treatment of Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, once she became part of the British royal family.

"The Mail on Sunday is playing a media game with real lives", she adds.

In the statement filed on Thursday, which also marks 100 days since the couple left their senior royal roles, she said the women "made a choice on their own to speak anonymously with a United States media outlet more than a year ago, to defend me from the bullying behaviour of Britain's tabloid media".

That's the message the former Royal was trying to convey in her latest legal move against the British newspaper, Mail on Sunday, and its publisher, Associated Newspapers, on Thursday.

Papers drawn up by lawyers for the newspaper argue that the publication of the letter to the duchess's father, Thomas Markle, was in response to a "one-sided" article in People Magazine in February 2019 featuring an interview with the "close friends".

Over a year ago, several of Meghan Markle's friends, under the condition of anonymity, spoke out about lies and untruths that had been published about her over the years.

Teenage victim of COVID-19 had complex medical history
Her mother works as a nurse, and her father is employed as a physician's assistant, the News-Press.com reported. A 17-year-old Lee County teenager died after contracting coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in early June.

The Mail has argued it was justified in publishing the extracts because it said the five friends had revealed the existence of the correspondence in a prior interview with the United States magazine People. It is this publisher that acted unlawfully and is attempting to evade accountability; to create a circus and distract from the point of this case-that the Mail on Sunday unlawfully published my private letter.

Each of friends, she writes, "is a private citizen, young mother, and each has a basic right to privacy".

"I am concerned that the publicity will intimidate one or more of the Five Friends and dissuade them from agreeing to give evidence in support of the Claimant's case at trial", the paperwork stated, per The Telegraph. So when you operate as Harry just happening to fall in love with someone who is not in the traditional set of circumstances, then there was going to be pushback. "Please stop victimising me through the media so we can fix our relationship".

Markle and his daughter have not spoken since he pulled out of attending her wedding to Prince Harry in May 2018 after undergoing heart surgery and following news he had staged photos with a paparazzi photographer.

Meghan says she was left feeling "unprotected" by the palace.

Claims she was distressed by an "obvious agenda of publishing intrusive or offensive stories about [her] meant to portray her in a false and damaging light" are also struck out.
