Meghan Markle won her case against “Mail on Sunday”, the British weekly newspaper published by the Associated Newspaper group. The Duchess of Sussex, 40, had sued the British tabloid over the publication by the latter of a letter to her father. Media reported on Wednesday January 5 that the Mail on Sunday paid a symbolic sum of damages to Prince Harry’s wife. This surprising sum is used to settle the legal proceedings opposing the English tabloid against Meghan Markle, for misuse of private information. But this is not the only sum the Duchess of Sussex should receive.

According to a spokesperson for Meghan Markle, 40, another sum was due to be paid to her for copyright infringement. Although the amount of this sum is kept confidential, the spokesperson describes it as “more important”. Finally, for legal costs, the daughter of Thomas Markle was entitled to 300,000 pounds, or 360,000 euros. The totality of these sums was to be paid to him before January 7, according to the legal document published by the defense of the group Associated Newspapers. The fact that this court document is made public is proof, according to the BBC, that the newspaper accepts its defeat. The BBC does not fail to say that Mail on Sunday is considering taking the case to the Supreme Court.

Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, definitely wins legal battle against Mail on Sunday

In a letter to her father in 2018, the former American actress begged him to stop his interventions. It is worth remembering that at the time, Meghan Markle had just married Prince Harry, 37. We remember a particularly lavish wedding, but which was also marred by some scandalous family stories. Chatty and wanting to draw attention to himself, Thomas Markle, the father of Meghan Markle, 77, has caused him a lot of trouble on the media scene. Pure People describes Thomas Markle’s interventions as “embarrassing and false.” Finally, the mother of Archie, 2, and Lilibet, 7 months, won the case on December 2.
