Meghan Markle asks father Thomas Markle to 'stop bullying' her in the press

Meghan Markle's father Thomas Markle is making the headlines after defaming the duchess.

For the unversed, Meghan's father sold private letters to Daily Mail and is currently under a lawsuit with the former royal for the same reason.

The 39-year-old's lawyers are now claiming summary judgment where the duchess will be subject to victory without trial. This request comes especially after the baseless of a case the tabloid has.

The lawyers also pointed to a letter in which Meghan begged her father to start respecting her right to privacy.

"It is a heartfelt plea from an anguished daughter to her father (the word 'pain' or 'painful' appears no fewer than five times), begging him to stop talking to the press," Meghan's lawyers write in their latest following.

"It is as good an example as one could find of a letter that any person of ordinary sensibilities would not want to be disclosed to third parties, let alone in a mass media publication, in a sensational context and to serve the commercial purposes of the newspaper," the letter continued.

Meghan ended her letter with a sincere request from her father to respect her right to privacy. She asked her father to 'stop' defaming her in public.

"If you love me, as you tell the press you do, please stop," Meghan wrote in the letter from August of 2018.

"Please allow us to live our lives in peace," the letter concluded.
