Meghan has furthermore claimed in the documents that she suffered "tremendous emotional distress and damage to her mental health" after so much media attention and that her friends felt "silenced" by Kensington Palace and unable to defend her.

Revelation that Meghan Markle felt "unprotected" by the British royal family while she was pregnant would have a huge impact on her husband's relationship with Queen Elizabeth, local media reported.

The "institution" of the monarchy failed to protect her from the accusations and she was "prohibited from defending herself", they added.

Meghan, wife of Queen Elizabeth's grandson Prince Harry, is suing publisher Associated Newspapers over articles its Mail on Sunday newspaper printed past year which included parts of a handwritten letter she had sent to her estranged father, Thomas Markle, in August 2018.

Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry attend an Anzac Day service at Westminster Abbey on April 25, 2018 in London, England.

In the new court documents, Meghan says she did not authorize her friends to speak to PEOPLE, nor was she aware of the story in advance.

The docs also state that "it was mandated by the [Kensington Palace Communications Team] that all friends and family should say "no comment" when approached by any media outlet, despite misinformation being provided to United Kingdom tabloids about [her]". The palace did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comment on Thursday.

A judge in the case has already struck out parts of the duchess' claims, including that Associated Newspapers acted "dishonestly and in bad faith" and "deliberately dug up or stirred conflict" between her and her father.

This is now at the center of a legal battle between the Sussexes and the British outlet.

After the PEOPLE story was published, The Mail on Sunday published the letter Meghan had written to her father. "We feel honesty and integrity are at the core of what matters; or as it relates to the Mail on Sunday and Associated Newspapers, their lack thereof", the statement from Meghan's attorneys began.
