Meghan Markle awarded 1 pound privacy damages, much more for copyright
Duchess Meghan of Sussex will receive the nominal sum of 1 pound after a court found that the Mail on Sunday invaded her privacy. The Mail will pay another unspecified sum for infringement of copyright plus lawyer fees.
Meghan’s victory included the court’s order that the Mail on Sunday publish an apology to the duchess on its front page.
The settlement brings to a close a long-running lawsuit filed after the Mail on Sunday published a series of stories in 2019 containing substantial excerpts of a personal letter Meghan wrote to her estranged father after her marriage to Prince Harry in 2018.
