The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, has reportedly had to drop part of her privacy case against the press after a High Court ruling.
The former actress, 38, has dropped claims the press ‘manipulated’ her father, 75-year-old Thomas Markle, reports suggest.
What has happened in the legal battle?
The newspaper reported that documents released on Thursday (June 4) showed that Meghan’s case is no longer alleging that the press “manipulated” her dad.
Similarly, claims the press engineered a dispute between her and her father, who famously missed her wedding with Prince Harry, have also reportedly been dropped.
ED! contacted Meghan’s reps for comment.
The duchess – who stepped down as a senior member of the royal family with her husband earlier this year to live independently in LA – is suing the Mail on Sunday.
The case surrounds the publication of extracts from a letter Meghan sent to Thomas in 2019.
‘Everything will come out’
In January, Thomas reportedly vowed that ‘everything will come out’ should be face his daughter in court.
The Sun reported that he said at the time he was prepared to be a witness in Meghan’s legal battle.
He is said: “When me and Meghan end up in a courtroom together, it will be quite stunning for everybody.
“It will be emotional. I don’t know how we will both accept it.
“It would be the worst place to have to meet her and Harry. But it might come down to that. Because I will certainly testify against the things that have been said about me. The lies.”
