What Duchess Meghan wrote in her letter to her father is a private matter and has no place in the newspaper. A British court reached this conclusion and thus found the Duchess of Sussex to be right. She sued the tabloid “Mail on Sunday”, which had published excerpts from a handwritten letter to her father that the Duchess had fallen out with. Tabloids have to pay heavy fines for this illegal behavior.
The Mail, part of the Associated Newspaper Publishing Group, admitted defeat on its front page on Sunday. It said that financial compensation has been agreed upon. As “The Sun” reports, a victory in Meghan’s court could fetch around €1.8 million. His legal fees were so high – and the loser has to pay them.

In February, a judge of the London High Court ruled the letter was “personal and private” and the publication illegal. The publisher appealed, arguing that Meghan should have expected the contents of the letter to be leaked. But the appeals court saw it differently and upheld Meghan.
Even if the Duchess is sure to be happy with a victory on court, she’s been denied one thing so far: On Sunday, the Mail did not apologize for the breach of its privacy., The 40-year-old had explicitly insisted on this in court, but the publisher refrained from doing so.
“Bridgeton” is one of the most successful Netflix series of all time—so many customers are eagerly awaiting the historical drama’s announced second season. The plot will also be based on the book of the next chapter. The focus then shifts to the story of Anthony (Jonathan Bailey), while audience-favourite reggae-Jean Page leaves the series as the Duke of Hastings.
