It’s being reported that Thomas Markle and his daughter Meghan could be reunited soon - in court. The Mirror has reported that Thomas is ready to fly to the UK to defend his actions over releasing one of Meghan’s letters. An insider told the paper, ‘It is tragic how Tom didn’t come to Meghan’s wedding yet his first brush with anything royal could be in one of Her Majesty’s courts. Tom speaking out to defend his actions [over the letter] shows his intent, he is adamant he was justified.’

The pair have not seen each other since 2015. Last week, Prince Harry made an emotional statement about the treatment by the press of his wife, Meghan. Harry’s statement was issued as it was revealed that the duchess is taking legal action against The Mail on Sunday for publishing a letter to her father.

In the statement,Prince Harry speaks about how painful the experience of being written about negatively has been: 'There is a human cost to this relentless propaganda, specifically when it is knowingly false and malicious, and though we have continued to put on a brave face – as so many of you can relate to – I cannot begin to describe how painful it has been.'

The most emotionally charged section of the statement comes when Harry seemingly likens the treatment of Meghan by the press to the treatment of his late mother, Princess Diana.

'There comes a point when the only thing to do is to stand up to this behaviour, because it destroys people and destroys lives,’ he writes. ‘Put simply, it is bullying, which scares and silences people. We all know this isn’t acceptable, at any level. We won’t and can’t believe in a world where there is no accountability for this.’

A legal spokesperson for Schillings, the law firm that currently represent The Duchess, said: 'We have initiated legal proceedings against the Mail on Sunday, and its parent company Associated Newspapers, over the intrusive and unlawful publication of a private letter written by the Duchess of Sussex, which is part of a campaign by this media group to publish false and deliberately derogatory stories about her, as well as her husband. Given the refusal of Associated Newspapers to resolve this issue satisfactorily, we have issued proceedings to redress this breach of privacy, infringement of copyright and the aforementioned media agenda'.

As for the costs associated with the lawsuit, the statement says, ‘The case is being privately funded by The Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Pending a Court ruling, proceeds from any damages will be donated to an anti-bullying charity.'
