The Duchess’s father announced that he had persistent heart and lung problems that prompted him to end his daughter’s case against Associated Newspapers.
Beginning of the year, Meghan filed a lawsuit against the editors of Mail and MailOnline on Sunday, for publishing excerpts from a private letter she sent to her father after her royal wedding in May 2018.

The case was originally scheduled to start next January and should last ten days, but it did since then postponed for 10 months to October 2021 after a secret hearing in London’s High Court.
Thomas Markle said he wanted to “get the case over with as soon as possible” because he “might die tomorrow”.
In a statement from Elizabeth Hartley, Associated Newspapers’ group legal director, Markle alleged that the case caused him “fear”.
“I’m 76 years old and because of my heart disease and surgery, I have to rely on blood thinners to affect my breathing.”
He revealed that his health made it difficult to “walk far” or “climb many flights of stairs” and “cannot take more than 30 or 40 steps without wrapping himself and slowing down.”
Meghan’s father added his status as a diabetic and his family history means he “may die tomorrow”.
Markle noted that he does not want to find out if he has “cancer or any other serious illness” and claimed that “one of my male relatives has ever lived over 80 years of age.”
The estranged father should testify in the trial against his daughter, who is also expected to take a stand.
Today Meghan was granted a ten-month delay until October next year in a private “nondisclosure negotiation” held in secret “to protect the confidentiality of some of the facts presented.”
Justice Warby granted the delay, adding that the “primary basis” on which the adjournment was requested is “confidential”.
“The right decision, under any circumstances, is to grant the motion to adjourn,” he said.
“This means that the negotiation date of January 11, 2021 will be cleared and the process will be rescheduled for a new date in the fall.”
The decision is made by Meghan’s legal team to change the time frame of the case and get a judge to rule her case without a full trial.
This would mean Meghan would not take the stand at the Royal Courts of Justice.
