Meghan Markle’s lawyers are going “back-and-forth” in the court case, according to claims. This comes after it was reported that the Duchess of Sussex allowed an acquaintance to give “the true position” to the authors of ‘Finding Freedom’. The book is a biography about her and Prince Harry’s time as working royals.
Royally Obsessed podcast hosts Roberta Fiorito and Rachel Bowie explained why this news was impacting the proceedings.
Ms Fiorito told listeners: “My low this week has been all the back-and-forth about Finding Freedom.
“So we just heard that Meghan did allow an acquaintance to give the true position to the authors.
“It just feels weird. The clarification is only about the letter she wrote to her dad.”

The Duchess is suing Associated Newspapers over five articles published that included contents of a private letter she sent to her father in August 2018 without her permission.
The publisher denies allegations of wrongdoing.
The trial, which was originally due to take place in January, has now been delayed until autumn 2021.
High Court judge Mr Justice Warby granted the delay, saying: “The right decision in all the circumstances is to grant the application to adjourn.
“That means that the trial date of January 11 2021 will be vacated and the trial will be re-fixed for a new date in the autumn.”
