‘She very much wanted to set the record straight’

How lovely to see a video of baby Archie celebrating his first birthday today. Many happy returns to the little fella – who appears about as obedient at reading time as my own three children. (Will homeschooling ever end? Please, God…)

Meghan and Harry (who could be heard chuckling in the background as he filmed the clip) appeared in good spirits despite losing the first part of their court battle against the Mail on Sunday and Mail Online last week.

The Duchess is suing Associated Newspapers over the publication of parts of a handwritten letter to her father, which she claims breached her privacy, along with copyright and data protection laws.

But the judge struck out her claim that the newspaper group had acted dishonestly, “stirred up” issues with Thomas Markle Snr and had an “agenda” against her.

In a written judgment, Mr Justice Warby said those claims were irrelevant in law, presented to the court inadequately, or disproportionate to investigate.

The Megulators and Sussex Squaders will no doubt disagree, but this was the right decision. What Meghan and her lawyer, David Sherborne (whom Hugh Grant reportedly has on speed dial), were trying to do was turn this case into her own personal public inquiry. But this case isn’t a Leveson II and nor should it be.

Breach of privacy, copyright and data protection are all fair claims. However, the notion that newspapers who publish negative stories about certain public figures have a vendetta against them is not only impossible to prove, but costly. The lawyers are already benefiting handsomely from this action, which is set to go all the way since neither side appears to be willing to back down and consider an out of court settlement. As I’ve said before, whatever the outcome, the only real winners here are going to be those charging by the hour.

Yet there is an intriguing twist to this story following the news that Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand’s book about the Sussexes, Finding Freedom, is set to hit the bookshelves in August.

Designed to “set the record straight” from the couple’s perspective, the publication is likely to be highly critical of the tabloids Harry and Meghan have grown to hate.

I know both Omid and Carolyn personally and I wish them all the best with this book – but I do wonder if Omid may have inadvertently compromised Meghan’s case by telling Good Morning America that she intended the contents of the letter to be made public.

Speaking to the US network in February, he revealed that Meghan “knew in her heart of hearts that this was going to be released to the papers.” He added: “Many of those things in that letter were written with the public in mind. She very much wanted to set the record straight.”

If Meghan always intended the letter to be made public, according to the man supposedly writing “her” side of the story, was it ever really private?

Author of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s biography Omid Scobie says even the Sussexes ‘didn’t expect things to turn out the way they did’ and promises book will be the definitive version’ of their lives

  • British journalist Omid Scobie discussd the release of Harry and Meghan’s bio
  • Says it feels nice to finally talk about the project after  ‘beavering away at quietly for two years’
  • Admitted even the Sussexes didn’t expect things to turn out the way they did
  •  Finding Freedom: Harry and Meghan and the Making of A Modern Royal Family is set to be released worldwide online on August 11

‘Finding Freedom’ was started as cracks began to emerge between Meghan and the rest of the royal family in the lead-up to her wedding in May 2018
