MEGHAN Markle used her friends as “de facto media relations agents” to pass at least 49 personal information “that could only have come from her” to the authors of her gushing biography, it was claimed today.

The Duchess of Sussex is said to have colluded with the writers of Finding Freedom as part of a ‘media strategy to improve or enhance her image’ that began shortly after her marriage to Prince Harry in 2018.

Editor highlights 49 details in Finding Freedom, says they could only have come from Meghan

Meghan, 39, is suing the Mail on Sunday for printing out excerpts from a letter she sent to her father Thomas, claiming it violated her privacy.

But in new papers filed today, the newspaper claims the Duchess of Sussex has “no reasonable expectation of privacy” as she has secretly shared intimate secrets with Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand.

He claims Meghan “does not object to details of her personal relationships and correspondence being publicly disclosed, provided they are couched in terms that are favorable and flattering to her.”

The newspaper said Meghan became “increasingly frustrated that the press coverage she received was not to her liking and did not do her justice” and “wanted to take more active steps to promote a positive image of herself ”.

He says: “She began to feel that the British press was acting in one way or another against her, so much so that she believed (and still believes) that there were ‘hundreds of thousands’ of ‘inaccurate articles about him.

“So she decided to bypass or increase the efforts of the Palace communications team and pass information to the media and to the authors herself, using her friends as de facto media relations agents or agents. .

“She and her husband cooperated with the authors to publish their version of events through the book.

“They allowed the authors to observe and interact with them, their friends and associates, and allowed their friends and associates to speak and pass information to the authors.

The newspaper says much of the information in the bestselling book “could come only from Meghan and / or her husband”.

He then lists 49 details in the book that he says must have come directly from Meghan herself, including:

  • A detailed account of her relationship with Prince Harry – including whoever said “I love you” first
  • His feelings towards Kate Middleton
  • His birth plan for Archie
  • Detailed accounts of the vacation she took with Prince Harry

He adds that Finding Freedom contains several photographs originally posted on Harry and Meghan’s Instagram account SussexRoyal.

The newspaper points out that Meghan has previously complained to the media about her use of these images, but not to the authors of Finding Freedom.

He says: “It is inferred that Meghan gave the authors permission to repost these images in the book. “
