Meghan Markle Says Her Dad Was “Exploited” By the Press
Meghan Markle’s life has pretty much been tough ever since she decided to become a part of the Royal Family. She just can’t seem to catch a break. From being targeted by the British media to stepping down from the Royal duties, it’s been… eventful.
And now that her legal battle against a British tabloid has specially begun, there’s a lot more to come. The first case hearing was held online by the London’s High Court due to the coronavirus. According to NBC News, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle got up at 4 am, Los Angeles time to join part of the hearing. And Meghan’s arguments were presented by her legal counsel who specializes in privacy and defamation cases.
Moreover, her attorney went on to tell the courts that the first fact to be determined is that the public were being misled. This was done by publishing only part of the letter. The letter in question is the one Meghan wrote to her father, Thomas Markle, leading up to her wedding. And for anyone who is not up to date. Meghan is suing the British tabloids for publishing parts of that letter.
However, the respondent argued that Meghan was a public figure. Which is why the public ought to know what was happening in the family.
Meghan Markle’s father “exploited”?
Furthermore, Meghan’s lawyers believe that Thomas Markle was exploited and harassed by the British media. But that’s not all. They even went as far as to claim the press manipulated Thomas to give interviews.
However, earlier this month, Meghan and Prince Harry had announced they will no longer engage British tabloids. These included The Mail, The Sun, The Mirror and The Express.
