Yesterday it became known that Elizabeth II’s son, Prince Andrew, was stripped of military ranks and royal patronage after allegations of rape. And now Meghan Markle’s father insists that his daughter testify in the scandalous case.
According to Thomas Markle, his daughter needs to turn to lawyers and lawyers. “I know she had some business with Andrew. Of course there were. If she has been to any events or places where he has been, she needs to speak out. She has no right to refuse it in fact. I understand that Andrew’s reputation is damaging the royal family. If she knows something and was involved in Andrew’s circle in any way, in one form or another, her duty is to tell about it,” he told reporters.
It should be noted that earlier the victim’s lawyer had already said that he would need Meghan Markle’s testimony. Since the Duchess of Sussex is close to the royal family, it was assumed that she could know insider information and significantly influence the further development of the case.
The fact is that while Megan is in the U.S., lawyers have jurisdiction over her. “She cannot be spared from participating in the process because she is a duchess. In fact, by leaving the UK and taking her prince with her, she gave up the right to be the Duchess of Sussex,” her father added.
