She continued, “By taking this form of action, I am protecting my husband from this constant insult, and while it is unlikely, it will give my father a moment to pause.”
E! News reached out to the palace for comment and did not hear back.
According to the PA, Meghan also explained her thought process when she wrote the letter and wrote to Knauf: “Of course, everything I set up with the understanding is that it can be leaked, so I was careful in my word choice.”
One such choice the Duchess made was to call her father “Daddy”, to argue to Knauf that she “just ever called him Daddy” and “in the unfortunate event that it leaks, it will hurt the heartstrings pull.”
Knauf, what before accused Meghan of harassing his palace assistants (who has been since their claims withdrawn), also addressed the court about his cooperation with Finding freedom authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand. The former secretary testified that he and Meghan discussed the book “on a routine basis” and that he corresponded with Prince Harry about his conversations with Scobie and Durand.
