    So how's it going in the High Court?

    Meghan Markle: ‘I’m ready to take the stand’. Duchess’s lawyer says she is prepared for high-stakes courtroom showdown with Thomas


    • Meghan Markle suing publisher of Mail on Sunday for printing letter to her father
    • She claims article in 2019 breached her privacy, copyright and data protection
    • Associated Newspapers disputes claims and wants parts of her case thrown out
    • They claim she allowed friends to brief People magazine, breaching own privacy
    • Mr Justice Warby has reserved judgment but hopes to rule in the next week
    • Meghan's barrister reiterates Duchess is willing to give evidence in High Court

    By MARTIN ROBINSON, CHIEF REPORTER FOR MAILONLINE and SAM GREENHILL CHIEF REPORTER FOR THE DAILY MAIL
    PUBLISHED: 13:47, 24 April 2020 | UPDATED: 03:25, 25 April 2020

    Meghan Markle is willing to take the stand in a legal battle with the British press, it was revealed today, setting up an extraordinary High Court showdown with her estranged father who she branded a liar.
    The Duchess of Sussex, 38, is suing Associated Newspapers, owner of the Mail on Sunday and MailOnline, over an article which reproduced parts of a handwritten note she sent to Mr Markle, 75, in August 2018, three months after he was unable to walk her down the aisle following a heart attack.
    The first stage of her case started at the High Court in London today where the publisher made an application to have parts of her claim thrown out. It was held via video link due to coronavirus.
    Her celebrity barrister David Sherborne told the hearing his client had suffered 'great personal anguish and distress' as part of an alleged ‘agenda' against her in the press before making it clear Meghan would give evidence during any future trial.
    He said: 'The defendant [Associated Newspapers] wants to cross-examine her [Meghan] as to whether that belief is reasonable or not - and they can do that'.
    The Duchess's 'bring it on attitude' emerged near the end of the day’s proceedings, which the Sussexes are believed to have watched online from Los Angeles, where they have settled with their son Archie.
    The High Court case has been dubbed 'Markle vs Markle' in which the duchess's estranged father Thomas, 75, is prepared to give evidence against his own daughter in a box office trial where a judge would decide who is telling the truth about their rift and the letter Meghan sent to him in August 2018.
    On Monday court papers lodged by Meghan’s lawyers branded her father a liar and denied she knew her influential friends planned to reveal details of her deteriorating relationship with him - and her handwritten letter to him- with People magazine in America.
    Thomas Markle has said he felt pressured to share the letter with the press after its contents were misrepresented and he was 'vilified' in the People article, telling the Mail on Sunday: 'I have to defend myself. I only released parts of the letter because other parts were so painful. The letter didn't seem loving to me. I found it hurtful.'
    Meghan would also be asked under oath whether she knowingly' allowed her friends to leak details of the letter to People magazine to attack her father. These five unnamed best friends could also be forced to testify at the High Court in London.
    The court heard today that Meghan alleges her estranged father Thomas was 'harassed and exploited' by the press despite not speaking to him for two years or asking if he agrees with her claims.

    The estranged father of the Duchess of Sussex is expected to be called as a key witness for the defence in a court case she has brought against a newspaper (pictured: Meghan Markle as a youngster, with her father Thomas Markle)

    As I predicted the snarky mean girl thing unrailed. Not so much in other threads. Go look. It's just criticism and boredom. But for some reason here, the viciousness comes out. I find it also interesting that women above the age of 35 don't consider these kinds of snark MEAN. Cue to Tina Fey in your reference guide.

    Again it is not across the board to all people in the social media focus. You don't, for example, see the same thing directed at Kim Kardashian who has much more media focus. It's a drop off. You like her or you don't. But there are not (as our examples have shown) women over the age of 35 who use vicious and passive aggressive sarcasm to denigrate people who are not fans of a Narcissist.

    Again watch the attacks. To note: Most of the people commenting are women over the age of 35 and are highly educated women. (Data Chart 4 A. line c) Nonetheless their attacks are predictable and pendantic.

    Let us watch.

    WTF is "unrailed"????

    Do you mean derailed? Except that doesn't make sense.
    Unravelled????

    As for the rest TL;DR

    Did I miss something? Was that a ban for not liking Meghan?

    Long time lurker here and I have to agree with this. When the thread was renamed, I was surprised it wasn't "Megan's Fan Club". Those that say they don't care one way or the other obviously do and its typically pro Megan.

    given the repetitive and unhinged writing re: narcs, i'm guessing mentally "unrailed". i mean, i worked with a malignant narcissist for almost 2.5 years and i have the grey hairs and mild PTSD to show for it but unfortunately it didn't give me the supernatural ability to diagnose people based off a photo.

    Well for once I kept it reined in so it only has itself to blame for any banning!

    And effie we didn't run A*O off. At least I don't think so. She's tougher than that. And taken a powder more than once, whether pissed off or not. And hopefully will be back.

    I was hoping for an essay and/or narcofesto, but they weren't that interesting anyway. Damn.

    I still don't think narc is the right term for a narcissist and would you pronounce it nark or narse? And yes, I'm stuck on this stupid point.
