Meghan Markle has apologised for misleading the court after saying she forgot that she gave an aide permission to brief the authors of a biography about her and Prince Harry.

Meghan and Harry previously denied contributing to the book, but Meghan apologised to the court on Wednesday and said the couple’s former communications secretary provided information to the authors of Finding Freedom with her knowledge.

The latest bombshell comes off the back of a legal battle between Meghan and Associated Newspapers Limited (ANL), the publishers of the Mail on Sunday, that started over the publication of letters sent to her father in 2018.

Seven key Meghan Markle moments on Ellen from life at home to Harry confession

  Seven key Meghan Markle moments on Ellen from life at home to Harry confession The 40-year-old candidly opened up about a number of subjects, including family life away from the UK and what it was like to be part of the royal family. But now, sitting down on the sofa across from Ellen, the 40-year-old candidly opened up about a number of subjects, from her last wild night with Prince Harry before they were thrust into the spotlight to sharing adorable photos of their children.

What happened and why has Meghan apologised to the court?

In court, the couple’s former communications secretary Jason Knauf said Meghan had furnished him with several briefing points for authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, including information on how she had “very minimal contact” with her half-siblings during her childhood.

Knauf insisted the book was “discussed on a routine basis”, which was “discussed directly with the duchess multiple times in person and over email”.

Emails released as part of Mr Knauf’s statement showed he had emailed Harry to discuss the book and to say he would meet the authors.

According to the former aide, the duke replied: “I totally agree that we have to be able to say we didn’t have anything to do with it.

  Will Meghan regret her bizarre TV appearance? She divided opinion with her new playful personaSitting down with the problematic host, who last year was accused of fostering a “bullying” environment on set, Meghan regaled the audience with memories of being a jobbing actress and snippets of her and Harry’s “happy” family life in LA, before taking part in an interesting skit, which saw her pranking a load of unsuspecting street vendors and dropping to a squat in the middle of the street.

“Equally, you giving the right context and background to them would help get some truths out there.”

Speaking on Wednesday, Meghan apologised for misleading the court about whether Knauf provided information to Scobie or Durand.

She said: “I accept that Mr Knauf did provide some information to the authors for the book and that he did so with my knowledge, for a meeting that he planned for with the authors in his capacity as communications secretary.

“The extent of the information he shared is unknown to me.

“When I approved the passage…I did not have the benefit of seeing these emails and I apologise to the court for the fact that I had not remembered these exchanges at the time.

“I had absolutely no wish or intention to mislead the defendant or the court.”

Meghan added that she would have been “more than happy” to refer to the exchanges with Knauf if she had been aware of them at the time, adding they are “a far cry from the very detailed personal information that the defendant alleges that I wanted or permitted to put into the public domain”.

Meghan Markle on Ellen Show is ‘smart move for brand Meghan - she’s here to stay’, says expert

  Meghan Markle on Ellen Show is ‘smart move for brand Meghan - she’s here to stay’, says expert EXCLUSIVE: Ahead of Meghan’s Ellen Show appearance in the US, a popular culture expert says she’s winning no hearts in BritainThe Duchess, who’s snubbed Christmas with the Queen, is seen in a sneak peek clip discussing her early struggles as an actress and happy home life with Prince Harry, Archie and Lilibet.

Another reason she gave for not discovering the emails between her and Knauf sooner was that the disclosure stage of the legal action had not been reached, and in October last year her lawyers applied to put off the trial date as she was pregnant.

She said she was advised to avoid stress, after her recent miscarriage, which came shortly after ANL indicated it wished to reveal the identities of her five friends who gave an interview to the US magazine, People, in which they referred to her relationship with her father.

Meghan said: “I was in the first trimester of my third pregnancy at the time, having suffered a miscarriage a few months prior, and was feeling very unwell.

“My doctor advised me to avoid stress, particularly given the recent miscarriage days after the defendant threatened to break the confidentiality of the original ‘sources’ for the People magazine article, which resulted in my having to make an urgent application for an anonymity order.

“This was granted … but I found the process extremely stressful, and it took its toll physically and emotionally.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have announced just 2 Netflix shows in year since deal

  Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have announced just 2 Netflix shows in year since deal MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry have announced just two shows since signing their Netflix deal over a year ago.In April the Sussxes announced the first show from their multi-million pound deal - a series about Harry's Invictus Games called Heart of Invictus.

“I have at all times wanted to protect the privacy of those friends, while the defendant was, it seemed to me, doing everything it could to make this litigation as intrusive as possible.”

How have people reacted?

Meghan is on the front page of several newspapers in the UK this morning, with The Sun sharing a particularly wacky depiction of Meghan as “Little Miss Forgetful”.

People have shared their thoughts on the most recent updates from the court case on social media.

Naturally, Piers Morgan was chomping at the bit to weigh in. The former ITV presenter – who stormed off the Good Morning Britain set earlier this year after making incendiary comments about the duchess – shared his thoughts.

He said: “I’ve now had 8 months to carefully reflect on my statement that I don’t believe a word Meghan Markle says…. and I still don’t.”

Replying to Morgan, Twitter user Jules said Morgan is now “vindicated”.

Meghan Markle reveals Thanksgiving plans with Harry, Archie and Lilibet

  Meghan Markle reveals Thanksgiving plans with Harry, Archie and Lilibet The Duchess of Sussex spoke family life as she appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres ShowShe told Ellen DeGeneres: "I love to cook, we'll be [at] home and just relax and sort of settle in. It's our second Thanksgiving [at] home [in] California, so it will be nice.

Another response from banker Mohamed Wehliye asked Morgan what his “end game” is. Morgan replied to say he wants the Queen to stop them “ruthlessly exploiting their royal titles” while “trashing” the monarchy.

Others seemed to agree with Morgan, seeing the revelations as a blow to her credibility. Some even branded her a “liar”.

Some, such as journalist Dawn Neesom, seemed sceptical about the duchess’s perceived forgetfulness.

Others brought balance to the Twitter conversation, reminding people that Meghan said she would have been “more than happy” to refer to the exchanges if she had been “aware” of them:

The hearing is due to end today with a judgment at a later date.

The legal action between Meghan and ANL initially kicked off after the Duchess of Sussex sued over five articles that reproduced parts of a “personal and private” letter sent to her father Thomas Markle, 77, in August 2018.

Despite the High Court ruling the publication of the letter unlawful, ANL has challenged the ruling at the Court of Appeal, arguing the case should go to a trial on Meghan’s claims including breach of privacy and copyright.

This week, ANL’s legal team claimed that the letter to her dad was “written with public consumption in mind”.

The couple has been in the media spotlight this week out of the courtroom, too.

Earlier this week Meghan said tabloids should “come with a warning label one day like cigarettes”, while Prince Harry claimed he warned Twitter about the Capitol riots. He also slammed the term “Megxit” as “misogynistic”.

The couple were pictured last night as they attended the Salute to Freedom gala at New York’s Intrepid Museum.
