Meghan and Harry latest – 49 details in Finding Freedom that could have only come from Meghan Markle

MEGHAN Markle used her friends as 'de facto media relations agents' to feed at least 49 pieces of personal information 'which could only have come from her' to the authors of her gushing biography, it's been claimed.

The Duchess of Sussex, 39,  allegedly colluded with the writers of Finding Freedom as part of “a media strategy to improve or enhance her image” which started shortly after she married Prince Harry in 2018.

Meghan is suing the Mail on Sunday for printing extracts from a letter she sent her dad Thomas, saying it breached her privacy.

But in new papers filed today the newspaper says the Duchess of Sussex does not have “any reasonable expectation of privacy” because she secretly shared intimate secrets with Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand.

The paper says much of the information in the bestselling book “could have originated only from Meghan and/or her husband”.

It goes on to list 49 details in the book which it says must have come directly from Meghan herself, including:
