Sorry, never going to work like that.
Those outside post needed to be one piece from the deck to the top of the lattice.

Yeah, with lack of base support it was destined to do that. You need to run a 2x4 on the leaning side of your posts from the newel post base all the way up to the top of the lattice post, making it one piece, so to speak. You will have to modify your handrail at the intersection point, but screw the 2x4 all along the vertical length to the members. You should do it at all three posts. on the outside.
