On the list of documents that Samantha has demanded, there are multiple requests for information relating to Meghan’s first wedding to Trevor in 2011. The pair divorced in 2013.

Samantha’s lawsuit said, “On Page 317, the book falsely states that Mrs. Markle was not invited to the Duchess’ first wedding. This was another false statement designed to bolster the false position that the two sisters had no real relationship.”

One request read, “Please list the full name of each and every relative invited to attend your first wedding. For each individual listed, please also provide the date that he/she was invited to your first wedding and whether or not he/she attended your first wedding.

Further, Samantha wants, “Any and all documents which relate to, or list the attendees of your first wedding.”

This baseless and absurd lawsuit is just a continuation of a pattern of disturbing behavior. We will give it the minimum attention necessary, which is all it deserves,” Meghan’s lawyer said when the lawsuit was filed.

A judge has yet to rule on the battle over documents.
