Meghan Markle’s legal battle against Associated Newspapers and her publications Mail On Sunday and Mail Online has written a new chapter with the second hearing scheduled for this week. If in the first, the Duchess of Sussex’s legal team asked for a resolution to be reached without going to a full trial, claiming that the editorial group had no way of winning the lawsuit, in this second appointment there has been a twist that nobody expected. At the insistence of the group to have the trial scheduled for October, citing the importance of the Finding Freedom book as evidence, it has now been reported that four of the former workers closest to the Sussexes have made it known to the Court that they do not want to be involved in this situation, because they were simply doing their job.
