Because there isn't already enough royal drama in 2020, Meghan Markle's father Thomas Markle is reportedly gearing up to testify against her in court. Truly, how did it come to this?!?!? According to Us Weekly, Thomas is set to offer evidence against Duchess Meghan in her and Prince Harry's legal battle against the publishers of the Mail on Sunday, who printed a private letter she sent her dad.

Daily Mail reports that Meghan's estranged father is expected to be called as a key witness for the defense, which is honestly awful and the last thing Meghan needs right now. On top of that, apparently Thomas has already given lawyers private text messages between himself and Meghan, which were exchanged before her wedding. We won't be going into the texts here due to them being, uh, private, but....WTF, dude?!

FYI, Prince Harry released a letter announcing that he'd be taking legal action against Associated Newspapers (who publish Mail on Sunday) back in October, saying:

"Unfortunately, my wife has become one of the latest victims of a British tabloid press that wages campaigns against individuals with no thought to the consequences—a ruthless campaign that has escalated over the past year, throughout her pregnancy and while raising our newborn son. There is a human cost to this relentless propaganda, specifically when it is knowingly false and malicious, and though we have continued to put on a brave face—as so many of you can relate to—I cannot begin to describe how painful it has been."

Ugh, poor Meghan and Harry. And in case you forgot, on top of all this the couple are dealing with fallout from their decision to step back as senior royals. More on that over here.
