United Kingdom paper making 'commercial fodder' of dispute with royal Meghan, court hears

Meghan Refuses to Give Up Five Friends as Mail on Sunday Demands They Be Identified in Legal Battle

Meghan, wife of Queen Elizabeth's grandson Prince Harry, is suing publisher Associated Newspapers over articles the Mail on Sunday printed previous year that included parts of a handwritten letter she sent to her father, Thomas Markle, in August 2018. He said the anonymous interviews were arranged by one of the five friends, who was concerned about the toll media criticism was taking on the duchess, pregnant at the time with her first child.

Meghan said they had a privacy "right". An insider recently spoke to The Sun and said: "Prince Harry and Meghan are top of the pile as David and Victoria are good friends with them and know their attendance would make the day even more special".

"At this early stage of the litigation it can not be said with certainty that they would be witnesses at the trial".

The wedding of Brooklyn, 21, and actress Nicola, 25, is reportedly set to be a highly star-studded affair as friends of the Beckhams and Peltz family attend to watch the loved-up couple say "I do".

"I make this witness statement in support of my application that a non-party may not access the confidential schedule without first applying to the court on notice to my solicitors, and that the information contained in the confidential schedule must not be used by the defendant for any goal except for that of these proceedings".

Associated Newspapers has argued that information about the letter to Thomas Markle revealed in the People article must have come "directly or indirectly" from the duchess.

Her lead counsel, Justin Rushbrooke, said that within hours of the legal papers being filed, the Mail used them as the basis for what he described as a long and sensational article on its website, which in turn "started a wildfire" of media coverage.

Both studies called for further investigations of long-term cardiac consequences of COVID-19. Yet another study proved that there was an involvement of the heart in COVID-19 patients.

"Associated Newspapers, the owner of The Daily Mail and the Mail on Sunday, is threatening to publish the names of five women - five private citizens - who made a choice on their own to speak anonymously with a USA media outlet more than a year ago, to defend me from the bullying behaviour of Britain's tabloid media".

"The friends are important potential witnesses on a key issue", White said in a written argument.

"Reporting these matters without referring to names would be a heavy curtailment of the media's and the defendant's entitlement to report this case and the public's right to know about it", he said. Associated Newspapers says the friends' evidence "is at the heart of the case" and their identities should be known.

"Each of these women is a private citizen, young mother, and each has a basic right to privacy".

"She was advised that wearing such a necklace only served to encourage the photographers to keep pursuing such images - and new headlines", Scobie and Durand write in the book, as noted by PEOPLE.

ANL wholly denies the allegations, particularly the duchess's claim that the letter was edited in any way that changed its meaning, and says it will hotly contest the case. "The publisher of the Mail on Sunday is the one on trial".
