Meghan Markle Wins Privacy Battle in Court - Read Her Statement!

Duchess Meghan Markle has officially won her lawsuit against Associated Newspapers and The Mail on Sunday!

The Duchess was in the middle of an invasion of privacy suit after her private letter was published for the world to read.

In the lawsuit, Meghan was suing Associated Newspapers for invasion of privacy and copyright infringement over a series of articles in 2019 in The Mail on Sunday and MailOnline, which featured parts of a private letter from her father Thomas after her marriage to Prince Harry.

The case was heard in court in mid-January and the decision just came down.

She reacted to the news with a lengthy statement.

“After two long years of pursuing litigation, I am grateful to the courts for holding Associated Newspapers and The Mail on Sunday to account for their illegal and dehumanizing practices. These tactics (and those of their sister publications MailOnline and the Daily Mail) are not new; in fact, they’ve been going on for far too long without consequence. For these outlets, it’s a game. For me and so many others, it’s real life, real relationships, and very real sadness. The damage they have done and continue to do runs deep,” Duchess Meghan said in a statement to ET Canada.

She continued, “The world needs reliable, fact-checked, high-quality news. What The Mail on Sunday and its partner publications do is the opposite. We all lose when misinformation sells more than truth, when moral exploitation sells more than decency, and when companies create their business model to profit from people’s pain. But for today, with this comprehensive win on both privacy and copyright, we have all won. We now know, and hope it creates legal precedent, that you cannot take somebody’s privacy and exploit it in a privacy case, as the defendant has blatantly done over the past two years.”

“I share this victory with each of you—because we all deserve justice and truth, and we all deserve better,” she added. “I particularly want to thank my husband, mom, and legal team, and especially Jenny Afia for her unrelenting support throughout this process.”
