    And the aide gave her ideas on how to write the letter, they didn't tell her to write it or write it themselves. She asked for advise. It's all in the docs that were published today. She lost copyright privs due to sharing that the letter existed to a friend and was given permission to acknowledge the letter. JMO

    MOO a suggestion to write a letter is not likely to a have bearing on her copyright.

    Too many docs to post but she shared it and legally lost privacy rights since she acknowledged it to a friend. JMO

    Can you link the specific article that has the implied letter sharing?

    Hmm.
    MOO a couple of people esteemed people suggest you write a letter as a kind of Hail Mary make up gesture to a non-supportive father.
    A palace communication advisor goes over the letter before it is posted, as is done with all correspondence leaving the palace.
    Seems like normal business.

    MOO I think you mean that, in your opinion she should lose copy rights. She is currently asserting her rights in court.
    If the source of the information is the DM, Sun, Express - those are the Allied Press defendants

    Meghan Markle and Prince Harry hand Frogmore Cottage to Princess Eugenie and move belongings to California in dead of night.
    The Sussexes’ prized possessions were hauled out of Frogmore Cottage in the dead of night to make way for their new tenant, The Sunreports.

    Pregnant Eugenie, 30, and husband Jack Brooksbank moved into the refurbished five-bed home in Windsor two weeks ago.

    The secretive switch saw treasured items and furniture packed off to the Sussexes’ home in California.
    Harry and Meghan’s savage move to cut ties with the Royals for good

    MOO Sharing existence of a document does not void copyright.
    In any case I do not see any mention of a letter at all in the People article.

    MOO, I have my doubts that this would have been done secretly. The property is owned by the Queen. It's a short distance from Windsor Castle. Employees of the royal family would have learned and mentioned it to the Queen. JMO, it also seems unlikely the Princess Eugenie would have gone behind her grandmother's back to set up a "secret deal".

    Probably just some gossip.

    Dead of night, when reporters, blabby courtiers and staff are sleeping.

    MOO Meghan and Harry are fighting intrusion into their lives. From what I can see in the suit, a lot of it is based on Carolyn Graham's activity on behalf of DM and Allied, and as head of the US Daily Mail, a deeply connected Royal reporter. She personally visited with and "handled" Thomas Markle, even offering him a TV show to regularly opine on the many flaws of his daughter.
    I hope the judge finds in her favor as to me it is clear that her copyright was infringed upon.
