Meghan Markle Admits To Using A Friend To Communicate & Give Information To 'Finding Freedom' Amid Court Case

It was just revealed that Meghan Markle admitted to passing along personal information to Carolyn Durand and Omid Scobie, the authors of “Finding Freedom”.

In court documents amid her trial against the Mail, the Duchess of Sussex revealed that she allowed a third party to pass along the private information to the two royal insiders.

Her reason being that she was concerned that her father, Thomas Markle‘s claims about her cutting him out of her life, would be repeated.

Meghan‘s lawyers, via Town & County, shared that she was “concerned that her father’s narrative in the media that she had abandoned him and had not even tried to contact him (which was false) would be repeated”, and she allowed the information to be revealed.

The documents also state that in passing along this information, Meghan was intent on showing her side of the story and ultimately gave a friend permission to communicate with Carolyn and Omid. The information included the admission of a private letter between Meghan and Thomas.

Meghan is currently in a court battle with the Associated Newspapers Limited (the Mail) for publishing parts of that letter, and she claims her privacy was violated.

The paper, in turn, claims that Meghan had no hand in writing the letter at all, and it was her then communications secretary, Jason Knauf, and other members of Kensington staff, who did.

However, her lawyers again say that she did and consulted two other members of the royal family for guidance.

Meghan “shared a draft of that Draft with her husband [Prince Harry] and Mr. Knauf for support, as this was a deeply painful process that they lived through with her”, and while Jason provided some feedback to her, this was not a letter he penned. Instead, it was “a personal letter from father to daughter.”

She’s currently suing for breach of privacy, copyright and General Data Protection Regulation. The trial was scheduled for January, but was pushed back until the fall of 2021.
