Meghan Markle latest news – Duchess ‘to be SUED for defamation, libel & slander’ over ‘shocking’ Finding Freedom claims


MEGHAN Markle’s half-sister has vowed to sue her for “defamation” after bombshell emails revealed she helped brief the authors of the biography Finding Freedom.

The Duchess of Sussex had to apologise to the court for “forgetting” to tell the judge about the emails to ex-communications secretary Jason Knauf after they emerged amid her legal battle with the Mail on Sunday.

In an email sent to Mr Knauf, Meghan said her half-sister Samantha had “lost custody of all three of her children from different fathers”.

Fuming Samantha is now planning on suing Meghan for “defamation, libel and slander” as well as “breach of privacy”, the Sunday People reports.

“I’m speaking to one lawyer in England and one in the US as there are different statutory windows and different issues,” the 57-year-old told the outlet

“I’m looking at suing for defamation in the US. In the UK, I’m looking at a breach of privacy and data privacy act breach because the statutory window for defamation is only one year in the UK.

“Jason Knauf is subpoenable and the messages to [him] are evidence she was libelling and slandering me. Anything to keep this family quiet was my sister’s motto. It’s horrible.”
