Meghan Markle 's biography has at least 49 pieces of information which "could have only have come from her", a court heard today.
The authors of Finding Freedom were fed the details via friends she used as her "de facto media relations agents", the Mail on Sunday's lawyers alleged.
The Duchess of Sussex, 39, is suing the newspaper's publisher for printing extracts from a letter she sent her dad Thomas, saying it breached her privacy.
Meghan, who left the UK after marrying Prince Harry in 2018, strongly denies collaborating with the authors or any other media.
Last week her lawyer even described the stories in Finding Freedom as “extremely anodyne, the product of creative licence and/or inaccurate” in a bid to distance her from it.
But today the publisher revealed 49 details from the book they allege show the duchess cooperated with the authors of the biography.
It had won a bid to use Finding Freedom as part of its defence against Meghan Markle's privacy claim earlier this week.
The details include:
Personal correspondence between Meghan and her mother Doria Ragland
Details of Doria's employment and educational history
