Meghan Markle news latest – Piers Morgan SAVAGES Duchess & says 'I still don't believe her' after her grovelling apology

PIERS Morgan today tore Meghan Markle to shreds – eight months after he lost his Good Morning Britain Gig for calling her a liar.

The former GMB host weighed back into his feud with the Duchess of Sussex today after she apologised to the Court of Appeal amid a gruelling legal battle with a British newspaper.

Meghan yesterday apologised to a court for not telling a judge about emails showing her attempts to influence a biography about her and Prince Harry, saying: “I forgot.”

Tweeting a number of frontpage headlines referring to the revelations this morning, Piers wrote: "I've now had eight months to carefully reflect on my statement that I don't believe a word Meghan Markle says… and I still don't."

He added: "The ‘end game’ is that the Sussexes are stopped – by the Queen – from ruthlessly exploiting their royal titles for 100s of millions of dollars whilst simultaneously trashing the Royal Family & Monarchy.

"It’s shameful."

    Social media tribute to the fallen

    The Queen was unable to go today’s Remembrance services in person – she is expected to attend on Sunday instead – but the Firm choose to pay tribute to the fallen online.

    The Royal Family’s Twitter page shows a photo of Her Majesty, 95, wearing a poppy and another of her walking through the display of ceramic poppies at the Tower of London in 2014.

    A tribute from the Windsors read: “On the ‘eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month’ in 1918 the Armistice was signed.

    “Today the nation falls silent at 11:00 in an act of Remembrance of all those who have served and sacrificed.

    “We will remember them.”

    In pictures: Camilla joins Remembrance commemoration

    In London, the Duchess of Cornwall, patron of the Poppy Factory, attended Westminster Abbey for the 93rd Field of Remembrance.

    Camilla laid a cross as she paid a solemn tribute to Britain’s war heroes as she joined veterans at the abbey.

    Meghan 'doesn't want to be told what to do' (continued)

    Ms Levin, who spent a year with Harry as she wrote his biography, told GB News that Palace aides are finally hitting back against the Sussexes.

    "I think the whole thing is absolutely extraordinary," she said.

    "What is astonishing is that the Palace aides are now talking and saying what they think has really happened.

    "Before, they followed the Queen's motto – which is to never complain and never explain, and staff did this too.

    "But Meghan and Harry are a different breed now and [their comments are] thought to be so unfair and wrong that aides now going to speak about their views."

    She said Meghan had attempted to brush off Mr Knauf's evidence "as if it's nothing" – but added: "Here, it is very serious.

    "What she said in court was not true and I think her credibility will suffer for this in a significant way."

    Meghan 'doesn't want to be told what to do'

    MEGHAN Markle "doesn't want to be told" what to do amid an "extraordinary" court row that could see her credibility "suffer", an expert says.

    Prince Harry's official biographer Angela Levin hit out at the duchess following a series of astonishing revelations in her fight with a British newspaper.

    The mum-of-two is currently in the final throes of a three-year court battle with Mail on Sunday publisher Associated Newspapers Ltd (ANL).

    It comes after the newspaper published extracts of a five-page private letter she'd written to her dad begging him not to speak to the media about her.

    Meghan won her case at the High Court in February – but the publisher appealed.

  • caroline.mortimer@thesun.co.uk

    Explained: What did the original court ruling say?

    Lord Justice Warby ruled in February the publication of Meghan’s letter to her father was “manifestly excessive and hence unlawful”.

    The judge said: “It was, in short, a personal and private letter.

    “The majority of what was published was about the claimant’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.”

    Meghan was granted a summary judgment – meaning she won her privacy claim without a trial where she would have come face-to-face with her dad.

    She also won most of her claim the publication of the letter breached her copyright.

  • caroline.mortimer@thesun.co.uk

    Explained: What is the Mail on Sunday trying to prove in court?

    The central point of Associated Newspapers’ (the parent company of the Mail on Sunday) case is that Jason Knauf was in effect the co-author of Meghan’s letter to her father.

    As a Crown employee – paid for by the taxpayer – that would be anything he wrote would be submit to Crown Copyright – which means it is free to use.

    Meghan largely won her case in February after the judge ruled it was a breach of privacy and a violation of her personal copyright to publish it without her permission.

    Knauf previously denied having been the co-writer and editor of the letter from Meghan to her father and said he gave advice on it but did not know if it had been taken.

    What are the Royal plans for Remembrance weekend?

    The Queen still “intends” to spearhead the Royal Family’s tributes at the Cenotaph in Whitehall on Remembrance Day on Sunday, despite cancellations to her royal engagements recently.

    If she attends, this will be her first outing in weeks, following the cancellation of trips across the UK.

    Remembrance Day, which falls on November 11, will be a Thursday this year – but official commemoration takes place on the closest Sunday to that date.

    On Saturday night, prominent royals will also attend the Royal British Legion’s Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall.

    However, the monarch will not be present at Royal Albert Hall on Saturday.

    Roya Nikkhah, the Royal Editor at The Times, wrote: “Most senior members of the royal family, except the Queen, will also attend the Royal British Legion’s Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall on Saturday night.”

    Queen still plans to honour troops at Cenotaph

    The monarch is expected to lead the Royal Family’s tributes at this Sunday’s Remembrance Sunday commemorations at the Cenotaph in London.

    However she is likely to watch the ceremony from a nearby balcony while Prince Charles lays a wreath on her behalf.

    She has been resting on the advice of doctors for the past two weeks – and was unable to attend Cop26 as a result.

    Remembrance Day – also known as Armistice Day – falls on November 11 every year.

    It marks the day World War One ended, at 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month, in 1918.

    A two minute silence is held at 11am to remember those who sadly lost their life in all wars.

    Why did Harry and Meghan sue the Mail? (continued)

    Meghan has pledged to give any damages from the case to charity.

    In February, the judge ruled in the couple’s favour. He granted them a ‘summary judgement’ – which means he ruled in their favour without them having to go through a humiliatingly public trial.

    But now the Mail on Sunday is appealing and managed to win the right to make Jason Knauf’s testimony public.

    They are also bidding to get more information out into the public domain and get it to go to a trial at the Court of Appeal.

    If that happens, Meghan could now be forced to hand over private text messages, emails and phone records.

    It is likely the Duchess will also be called as a witness if the case is not settled out of court.

    Thomas Markle is also preparing to take the stand and testify against his daughter in the bombshell case.

    It would be the first time Thomas and Meghan would come face-to-face since 2015.

  • caroline.mortimer@thesun.co.uk

    Why did Harry and Meghan sue the Mail on Sunday?

    The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle is suing British newspaper Mail on Sunday for damages after it published a leaked letter she wrote to her father, Thomas Markle, after her May 2018 wedding.

    The Duchess claims it was a misuse of her private information and breach of copyright.

    In a statement, the Duke of Sussex said he and Meghan were forced to take action against “relentless propaganda”.

    Prince Harry said: “I lost my mother and now I watch my wife falling victim to the same powerful forces.”

    Lady in red

    Meghan Markle defiantly stepped out in a red dress last night just hours after her court showdown over a royal biography.

    The Duchess of Sussex strode hand in hand with Prince Harry as he presented war heroes with medals in New York – hours after she apologised to the Court of Appeal amid a gruelling legal battle with a British newspaper.

    The mum-of-two stunned in a plunge neck gown by Carolina Herrera and wore Princess Diana's Diamond Tennis Bracelet for the gala.

    Harry could be seen putting a protective hand on his wife's back before chatting with each of the dignitaries in turn.

    At one moment Meghan extended a hand out to her husband as a reporter standing behind asked if she was "proud" of her husband.

    The duchess replied: "I'm always proud of him."

  • caroline.mortimer@thesun.co.uk

    Stealing his lines (continued)

    Meghan said: “My husband always says, ‘With great privilege comes great responsibility’.

    “But even before I had any privilege in my life, when my life and my lifestyle were very, very different, I always just stood up for what was right.”

    But the quote “with great power comes great responsibility” was actually made famous by Spider-Man.

    The saying was first coined by French writer Voltaire – but most people associate it with Peter Parker’s uncle Ben in Spider-man.

  • caroline.mortimer@thesun.co.uk

    Stealing his lines

    Meghan Markle has gushed over Prince Harry telling her that “with great power comes great responsibility” – a quote made famous from SPIDER-MAN.

    The Duchess of Sussex last night sat down for her first in-person interview since her bombshell chat with TV chat show queen Winfrey back in March.

    Meghan, who wore a Remembrance poppy on an all-black outfit, was quizzed as part of the New York Times’ DealBook summit.

    In a wide-ranging discussion, she spoke of cutting out coupons as a child, working as a waitress – and lobbying Republican senators for parental leave.

    But viewers were quick to notice that the Duchess attributed a well-known Spider-Man quote to her husband when talking to interviewer Andrew Ross Sorkin

    Weight of the winter

    In 2018, royal expert Ingrid Seward Ingrid told Grazia that The Queen asks each of her guests – including Kate Middleton and Prince William – to "weigh themselves" when they arrive using a set of antique scales.

    But this is all to make sure guests are having a great time – and they're weighed to make sure they're being "well fed".

    The tradition dates back to King Edward VII's reign in the early 1900s – and applies to all members of the royal clan.

    As the festivities undeniably revolve around eating, the Royal Family first enjoy a turkey dinner with all the trimmings before indulging themselves in an afternoon tea complete with a "gargantuan iced cake".

    What's more, The Queen's guests are also expected to "enter the dining room in order of seniority."

    On the march

    Kate Middleton has wowed the crowds at Imperial War Museum as she opened two new galleries today.

    The Duchess of Cambridge wore a military-style coat and a Remembrance poppy as she officially opened the museum’s Second World War and The Holocaust galleries.

    The thrifty royal also recycled a ten-year-old shirt for the occasion.

    She was seen wearing the garment on a visit to a Birmingham Community Centre in 2011, and again as she toured Bletchley Park in 2014.

    This afternoon, Kate has viewed the exhibition Generations: Portraits of Holocaust Survivors.

    The show includes the two portraits she took last year to mark 75 years since the end of the Holocaust.

    The images are of Steven Frank and Yvonne Bernstein, who arrived in the UK after the Second World War.

    Recap: What did Ofcom say about Piers' outburst?

    Piers Morgan was memorially fired for going on a half an hour rant about Meghan Markle's Oprah interview and the next day storming off set when he was challenged on it by Alex Beresford.

    Meghan and Harry personally lodged a complaint against Piers to ITV and Ofcom against his outburst.

    Ofcom later ruled that restricting Piers Morgan's strong views would be an "unwarranted and chilling restriction on freedom of expression."

    Piers Morgan claims he still doesn't believe Meg

    Piers wrote: "I've now had eight months to carefully reflect on my statement that I don't believe a word Meghan Markle says… and I still don't."

    He added: "The ‘end game’ is that the Sussexes are stopped – by the Queen – from ruthlessly exploiting their royal titles for 100s of millions of dollars whilst simultaneously trashing the Royal Family & Monarchy.

    Making ends meet Meg

    Meghan Markle has revealed she still loves a good bargain and will not buy anything without a promo code – despite living in an £11million mansion and being married to a prince.

    At the NYTDealbook Online Summit, the Duchess of Sussex, 40, also opened up about how she used to sell scrunchies as a youngster to make some cash. 

    In a wide-ranging discussion, she was quizzed about cutting out coupons as a child, working as a waitress – and lobbying Republican senators for parental leave.

    Meghan revealed she used to make scrunchies to sell as a child and felt great “pride” in doing so.

    She said: “I had my mum take me downtown to get scraps of fabric from the fabric stores and sell them like five for five bucks who knows.

    “I remember the feeling of knowing that I had done something, I had invested in myself and done this labour and been compensated for it.

    Explained: What is the leaked letter?

    In a letter Meghan Markle begged her dad to stop speaking to the media about her – saying he was breaking her heart “into a million pieces”.

    She initially said it was a private letter written out of a her intense distress – but it is now revealed it was a calculated ploy crafted alongside Palace aides.

    After he agreed to pose for photos ahead of the May 2018 he was disinvited from the wedding and later spoke to Good Morning Britain about how he had been cut off from his daughter.

    The five-page handwritten letter was posted to Thomas by Meghan’s Los Angeles-based business manager.

    Brothers’ relationship still ‘poor’

    Prince William’s relationship with younger brother Prince Harry is still “poor” amid their ongoing feud, a royal author has claimed.

    Royal biographer Robert Lacey, who penned the book Battle of Brothers: William, Harry and the Inside Story of a Family in Tumult, says their current relationship is “poor, definitely poor”.

    Lacey told Page Six : “I’ve spoken to two people from that party and it was quite clear from things he said that his anger towards Harry remains.

    “He remains unhappy about what his brother has done. There is no immediate possibility of any reconciliation. I mean, it’s not wanted on either side. Too many bitter things have been said.”

    Prince of LA (continued)

    Speaking at the event onboard a warship, Harry said: “It’s wonderful to be back on USS Intrepid a decade after my last visit – and a lot has changed since then.

    “Just last week, I went for a ride on the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile – how’s that for living the American dream.

    “I’ve lived in the US for close to two years now.

    “I have to say, witnessing your support for all those that put themselves in harm’s way in defence of our freedoms and liberties – it’s remarkable and hugely respected.

    “It reminds me of the deep reverence us Brits have for our military as well.

    “The armed forces communities in both our countries share a special bond, and I’m grateful to have served in support of our joint allyship for many years.”

    Prince of LA

    Prince Harry joked he is “living the American dream” as he honoured veterans at a glamorous New York gala with Meghan Markle last night.

    The Duke of Sussex praised his recent ride on the “Oscar Mayer Wienermobile” – a hotdog-shaped car – while addressing the audience at the Intrepid Valor Awards.

    The dad-of-two was joined by a glamorous Meghan who defiantly stepped out in a red dress – just hours after she apologised to the Court of Appeal amid a gruelling legal battle with a British newspaper.

    Meghan's credibility questioned

    Meghan Markle’s “credibility” was sensationally questioned at the Court of Appeal yesterday after bombshell new evidence was submitted by one of her closest former aides.

    The Duchess of Sussex’s ex-head of communications has claimed she did “cooperate” with the authors of Megxit book Finding Freedom — despite numerous denials.

    The evidence of Jason Knauf allegedly shows Meghan’s account is “materially false” and “raises questions about her credibility”, the appeal hearing was told.

    Lawyers want to use his statement as they bid to overturn a High Court ruling that publication of extracts of a letter Meghan, 40, wrote to dad Thomas Markle, 77, was a breach of copyright.

    Further new evidence allegedly shows that Thomas sent Meghan several “affectionate” texts when he could not make her and Prince Harry’s wedding in May 2018 due to a heart attack, the court was told.

    Harry on Finding Freedom (continued)

    "Even if they choose not to use it, they should hear what it was like from someone who was in the thick of it.

    "So if you aren’t planning on telling them, can I ?!”

    Mr Knauf said he replied saying "Of course, I've never stopped".

    Harry responded: “Oh how I hope they report on it properly. Good luck!”

  • caroline.mortimer@thesun.co.uk

    Harry also tried to influence Royal biography

    Jason Knauf also claimed in his court papers that Harry had text him ahead of the meeting with the Finding Freedom authors with his own ideas.

    He said he advised the couple putting Scobie and Durand in touch with the Duchess's friends was "not a good idea", telling them: "Being able to say hand on heart that we did not facilitate access will be important.” 

    Harry said he agreed with Mr Knauf's plan and later sent an email outlining what the aide could say.

    The document says Harry wrote: "Also, are u planning on giving them a rough idea of what she’s been through over the last 2yrs? Media onslaught, cyber bullying on a different scale, puppeteering Thomas Markle etc etc etc.
