Duchess of Sussex’s father could testify against her in court

Duchess of Sussex’s father could testify against her in court

The Duchess of Sussex’s estranged father Thomas Markle could be testifying against her in her lawsuit against a British tabloid, according to defence documents filed at London’s High Court.

Duchess of Sussex’s father could testify against her in court

In October, Meghan and Prince Harry launched legal action against the Mail on Sunday and its parent company over the UK newspaper publishing a private letter to her father.

The civil lawsuit accuses the newspaper of copyright infringement, misuse of private information and violating data protection law.

Legal documents reveal the Mail on Sunday will rely on evidence from Meghan’s father for its defence.

The documents argue Thomas Markle had “a weighty right to tell his version of what had happened between himself and his daughter including the contents of the letter”.

Should the case go to trial, Meghan and Thomas Markle could both be called to testify.

Meghan’s estranged sister Samantha Markle has told the BBC that if her father is called, “he will come”.

It comes after Meghan made her first public appearance since her resignation as a senior royal.

The Duchess flew from Vancouver Island to Canada’s mainland, where she visited Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre.

“Look who we had tea with today! The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, visited us today to discuss issues affecting women in the community,” read a post on the centre’s Facebook page, alongside an image of Meghan smiling with the staff.
