Prince Harry and wife Meghan cut ties with four British tabloids

"It is not about shutting down public dialog or censoring accurate coverage", based on a supposed copy of the letter shared with Financial Times media reporter Mark Di Stefano on Twitter.

Some of those tabloids - and others, too - have pushed back over the timing of the statement. "Only we can help you, as we have been trying from day 1". They say they want to help give a voice to underrepresented people, "who are needed now more than ever". Their solipsism is fantastic. But by picking and choosing those outlets that they will talk to they inevitably open themselves up to that charge.

Former Royal Editor for The Sun, Charles Rae, told talkRADIO's Mike Graham that the move was "crass and stupid and arrogant". Though the former actress was initially welcomed in the United Kingdom, her American sensibility and her lack of understanding when it came to royal traditions quickly put her add odds with the British press and public.

So how much changes for the papers affected?

"The reality is it will have no positive effect whatsoever", Yelland said.

In the court filing Meghan says the last contact she received from her father was a missed call at 4.57am on 19 May 2018, the morning of her wedding, and they had not been in contact other than through letter correspondence since. "I think William and Harry have suffered a great deal over the years. but, as I say, the issue is, is it a wise thing to do?"

The couple later said they found scrutiny by the British media, which they said tipped into harassment, intolerable.

Harry has long had a fraught relationship with the press who he blames for the death his mother Princess Diana, who was killed in a auto crash in Paris in 1997 as her vehicle sped away from chasing paparazzi photographers when he was just 12.

A few minutes later she wrote.

In their case against Mail on Sunday, the Sussexes legal team just shared text messages between the duke, the duchess, and Thomas Markle. She is suing the Mail On Sunday newspaper in England for printing a letter she wrote to her father for not attending her wedding that took place in May 2018. The hearing will be conducted remotely, in accordance Britain's guidelines on social distancing.

It argued that given Meghan's royal status, there was legitimate public interest in her personal and family relationships.

Then Prince Harry supposedly asked Thomas for permission to marry Meghan, as he explained, "Harry asked for her hand over the phone and I said, 'You're a gentleman, promise me you'll never raise your hand against my daughter and of course I will grant you my permission'".

As evidence that it did not infringe her privacy, the paper said the letter was "immaculately copied" in Meghan's "elaborate handwriting", arguing that this care in its presentation meant she anticipated it would be seen and read by a wider audience.
