Harry and Meghan mislead court, then declare war on lies… you couldn’t Meg it up


Begging the question: What about those who super-spread several proven mistruths during an interview with Oprah Winfrey and “forget” to give important evidence to a court of law?



Just when you think the breathtaking hypocrisy of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex (a title they’re milking for all its commercial worth) has hit its apex, they elevate it to even dizzier heights.



And aside from the misinformation emanating from both himself and his wife, will Harry also address Netflix show The Crown’s tenuous link with the “truth” of his mother Diana’s life?



I doubt it, because he and Meghan are trousering a reported £110million fortune from the streaming giant to “make documentaries”.



No, yet again, the Montecito millionaires are seemingly showing an arrogance that suggests they think their status protects them from the rules/laws the rest of us “ordinary” folk are expected to abide by.



Associated Newspapers is appealing against a High Court ruling made against it for publishing extracts from Meghan’s supposedly “private” letter to her father Thomas.



As part of the appeal, the Sussexes’ former press officer Jason Knauf has released texts and emails he exchanged with the couple that ­provide an alternative narrative to the one they are peddling.



But to be honest, the content came as little surprise to me.Back when Meghan’s letter to her father first came to light, I commented on this very page that the carefully calligraphed handwriting and choice of words suggested it was a letter that the author expected might be made public.



Narcissists ploughed on, taking us all for foolsIndeed, snippets of it were put in the public domain by five of Meghan’s “close friends” and, at the time, I suggested that no one within her inner circle would dare to speak to the Press without her permission, for fear of excommunication.



Then came the “unauthorised” biography Finding Freedom and I cast doubt on Harry and Meghan’s claim that they had nothing to do with it, despite it containing their innermost thoughts about scenarios only they had been involved in.



Mr Knauf’s emails reveal that Meghan “authorised specific co-operation” for him to meet the authors and gave him a list of things to discuss.



I’m not pretending to be Mystic Moore here. It was blindingly obvious that something was not right at the heart of Den Markle.Pretty much everyone knew, or at least suspected it.



Yet on these two narcissists ploughed, trying to control the narrative around their public image while clearly thinking they are taking us all for fools.



I sincerely hope that the royal status she’s clinging on to does not protect her from her privacy claim now being properly tested in court.It’s clear that Harry and Meghan think it’s one rule for them and quite another for everyone else.



But the “justice” system should show this couple exactly what it thinks.I ADMIRE Alice Evans for refusing to go quietly when her actor husband Ioan Gruffudd walked out on her after 14 years of marriage and two children.



So often, women are told that showing anger or any form of extreme emotion makes them seem “hysterical” – a description never levelled at men, originating as it does from the Latin word hystericus, meaning “of the womb”.



But seeing Alice’s raw pain on TV last week, it might now prove wise to step back from public outpourings and take some time to rebuild her emotional strength in private.After all, the greatest revenge in life is to just get on with your life and be happy.
