Meghan Markle Wins $625,000 In Infringement Of Privacy Case Against UK Tabloid
It’s win-o-clock for the Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle.
The ex-actress and wife to the Duke of Sussex have been awarded $625,000 in her case against British publishing house Associated Newspapers LTD, owners of Daily Mail, MailOnline, The Mail on Sunday, Metro, Metro.co.uk, i newspaper and inews.co.uk.
A British judge yesterday March 2nd, 2021 granted her $625,000 towards her $2 million legal costs from the losing tabloid publisher in her privacy infringement lawsuit.
The Duchess is suing the Mail on Sunday’s publishers Associated Newspapers for invasion of privacy, infringement of data protection rights. Included is a copyright infringement case for printing extracts of what her lawyers describe as a “private and confidential” letter sent to her father, Thomas Markle, in August 2018. She wrote the letter to Thomas Markle three months.
The Judge, Mark Warby also rejected Associated Newspapers’s permission to re-appeal the case. According to Warby, it’s unlikely that another judge rules differently.

In written submissions, the lawyer for Associated Press protested the Judge’s ruling saying “The judge wrongly dismissed the possibility that a trial would enable us to prove our case.”
‘He wrongly decided that no evidence of significance would emerge between now and trial, when in fact there were good reasons to believe that further evidence would come to light, including the evidence of the Palace Four, other witnesses, and documents.’
The Duke and Duchess in April 2020 had severed all ties with Major British Publishing Houses. They include The Sun, Daily Mail, Mirror, and Express.
A letter statement by their spokesperson read:
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have watched people they know as well as complete strangers have their lives
completely pulled apart for no good reason, other than the fact that salacious gossip boosts advertising revenue,
It’s not about shutting down public conversation or censoring accurate reporting. Media have every right to report on and indeed have an opinion on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, good or bad. But it can’t be based on a lie,” the letter said.
