Speaking to ELLE.com, an unnamed source close to the Sussexes said that "the Mail’s defense largely hinges on the falsehood that The Duchess authorized or arranged for her friends to tell People magazine about her letter to her father. They argue that because she allowed her friends to discuss the letter, she gave up her privacy rights. In our response, we set out in absolute detail to prove how this is categorically untrue."

Associated Newspapers has denied Meghan's allegations and said it will defend itself against her lawsuit, while the Duchess has pledged to donate any damages she is awarded to anti-bullying charities.
