One of Meghan Markle's Lawsuit Settlement Amounts Revealed to Be Less Than $2

The amount of money that Meghan Markle is set to receive from Associated Newspapers following her courtroom victory for invasion of privacy has been revealed…and it’s miniscule.

If you don’t know, on Thursday (December 2), the Duchess of Sussex won a ruling in the Court of Appeal in London against the Associated Newspapers’ Mail on Sunday after they printed parts of a private letter she wrote to her father ahead of her wedding to Prince Harry.

The Duchess of Sussex will receive £1 in damages from the privacy breach. £1 is about the equivalent of $1.36. She will still receive an additional payout for copyright infringement. That amount is unknown, but is said to be substantial.

“Normally for that kind of invasion of privacy you would expect £75,000 to £125,000,” Mark Stephens, a media lawyer, told The Guardian. “It does show that the curation of her reputation was an area where she had effectively invaded her own privacy.”

While the Duchess can now put this case behind her, she may actually be called to testify in another major trial (and it involves a royal.)
