When the Mail on Sunday published a letter written by Meghan Markle to her father, Thomas Markle, in February, it was an escalation in an already embittered relationship between the Duchess of Sussex and the British tabloids.
Though Meghan and the rest of the royal family avoided commenting at the time, now she and her husband, Prince Harry, are pushing back. In a statement released Tuesday, the couple revealed that she is filing a lawsuit against Associated Newspapers, the tabloid’s parent company, over the publication of the letter.
He describes “continual misrepresentations” and a “ruthless campaign” against Meghan in particular “that has escalated over the past year, throughout her pregnancy and while raising our newborn son.“ The statement continues, “For these select media this is a game, and one that we have been unwilling to play from the start. I have been a silent witness to her private suffering for too long. To stand back and do nothing would be contrary to everything we believe in.”
