The “sources” will no longer speak for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex
Anonymous ‘friends’ have long spoken of the Duke and Duchess, with some true associates doing so in an attempt to protect Meghan from what they saw as unfair cover elsewhere.
His recent lawsuit against the Mail on Sunday grew out of a handwritten letter to his father first revealed by anonymous friends in People magazine in the United States.
The article saw five friends tell “the truth” about the Duchess in February 2019, after a series of articles alleging she had behaved badly at the palace.
âForget about who she’s married to – she was royalty from the day I met her,â one said. “The way she behaves, interacts with people, is the way you would expect a real royal to behave. She personifies elegance, grace, philanthropy.”
Another said, “She can make a five-star meal with the garbage in your fridge.”
After Archie Mountbatten-Windsor was born in 2019, a source told Harper’s Bazaar magazine: âThe baby is the most peaceful and placid child you have ever met. They are so proud but probably quite relieved to have taken out the photosâ¦ They are rather tired!
And when his little sister Lilibet arrived earlier this year, a source told US Weekly, “Harry adores Lili and loves reading her stories before bed and rocking her to sleep. Every day becomes happier.”
Some anonymous sources have already provided information which has proven to be a true reflection of what the Duke and Duchess think.
Earlier this year, the Court of Appeal heard details of an email the Duchess sent to Jason Knauf, then her communications secretary, in which she provided a note before he spoke to her biographers .
He said, in part: “The Queen offered Windsor, which the couple gratefully accepted.” They are also very happy to have the space and privacy that Windsor offers. Being able to take long walks, etc.
The published book, Finding Freedom, included the passage: â’As a place to raise a child, it’s really lovely,â said a trusted confidant of Meghan.
âThey could open their door and have all these private gardens. They both felt that it would be a really good thing for their child to be there, to go for private walks.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were previously represented by their own press secretary at Buckingham Palace and before that at Kensington Palace, before leaving the family working for a new life in California.
They now employ a team to manage their nonprofit Archewell Foundation, which has commercial television and audio production branches to work on their content for Netflix and Spotify.
The team includes Executive Director James Holt, who was promoted from their Press Officer, Global Press Officer Toya Holness and Head of Communications Christine Schirmer.
