Duchess Meghan: Expert: You should have got help from Prince Philip

In her letter,
A court filing by Meghan's lawyers read: "It is a heartfelt plea from an anguished daughter to her father (the word 'pain' or 'painful' appears no fewer than five times), begging him to stop talking to the press.
"It is as good an example as one could find of a letter that any person of ordinary sensibilities would not want to be disclosed to third parties, let alone in a mass media publication, in a sensational context and to serve the commercial purposes of the newspaper."

When is Meghan Markle's second baby due?
Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry have officially announced they're expecting their second child. Here, we investigate when Meghan Markle's second baby could be due.Indeed the stunning black-and-white baby announcement is much welcome news after Meghan Markle revealed she tragically suffered from a miscarriage last year.
Four of her former staff had offered to give evidence, with the newspaper claiming at least one helped write the note as part of a media strategy.
Meghan would also have had to give evidence under hostile questioning by the Mail on Sunday's lawyers had it gone to trial and there would have been requests for the release of more private communications relevant to the case.
However, all that was stopped in its tracks when Judge Mark Warby ruled her case was legally so overwhelming that the newspaper had little chance of success at trial.
In his judgement, he wrote: "It was, in short, a personal and private letter. The majority of what was published was about the [Meghan's] own behaviour, her feelings of anguish about her father's behaviour – as she saw it – and the resulting rift between them.
"These are inherently private and personal matters."
The newspaper's argument that Meghan's father had a right to correct what he saw as a misleading did not meet the public interest justification he was looking for, he said.
He added: "The inescapable conclusion is that, save to the very limited extent I have identified, the disclosures made were not a necessary or proportionate means of serving that purpose.

However, it's unlikely Harry or his children will ever see the throne. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced on Sunday that they are expecting their second child. A spokesperson for the couple said in a statement: "We can confirm that Archie is going to be a big brother. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are overjoyed to be expecting their second child.
"For the most part they did not serve that purpose at all.
"Taken as a whole the disclosures were manifestly excessive and hence unlawful."
In reaching his conclusion, the judge had to consider whether Meghan had a reasonable expectation the newspaper should treat the contents of the letter as private.
Newsweek's survey data suggests support for the judge's decision, with the majority of British people polled also viewing the letter as private.
A trial to identify whether Meghan was the sole author of the letter is due for March 2, though the court has found publication infringed her copyright either way.
