Meghan has lost the latest skirmish in her privacy lawsuit against a tabloid newspaper.

Meghan Markle has seemingly had it with the barrage of misinformation that she sees regarding herself on a daily basis - and is commenting on internet fragmentation during a time where the world is going through a digital "reset".

In the recent biography Finding Freedom, Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand describe a culture of increasing tension between the Sussexes and other members of the Royal Family.

Meghan is suing Associated Newspapers over five articles, two in the Mail on Sunday and three which appeared on MailOnline, which were published in February 2019.

At Tuesday's hearing, the judge said her ruling added "further particulars" to the publisher's case - but did not give it "new defences".

To which Meghan's lawyer Justin Rushbrooke clarified: "The claimant and her husband did not collaborate with the authors on the book, nor were they interviewed for it, nor did they provide photographs to the authors for the book". Kaye said that Scobie had denied in a statement to the court that there was any co-operation from Markle on the book.
