After a tough battle against the British tabloids, Meghan Markle finally received the long awaited apology from the press.
Prince Harry’s wife has received a public apology from the Mail on Sunday and MailOnline, after they were accused of infringing copyright and publishing private letters the Duchess sent to her father in 2018.
The Legal Battle of Meghan Markle and the British Press is over
The legal battle had already dragged on for more than two years, the media were found guilty of the charges. The tabloid opened last Sunday with the news: “The Duchess of Sussex wins the case against Associated Newspapers for copyright infringement” and later in three subsequent pages they declared that justice sided with the former actress.
the media will have to pay a financial compensation and will also have to pay at least 90 percent of the legal expenses of the Duchess of Sussex, an amount that is estimated at approximately 550,000 euros.
“Winning this case sets a precedent, but the most important thing is that we are brave enough collectively to reshape the tabloid industry, which makes people cruel and makes money from the lies and pain they create,” Meghan said after the legal victory was announced on December 2.
She had qualified the victory not only for herself but “for all those who have ever felt fear of rising up in the face of injustice.”
