UK Tabloid to print front-page apology to Meghan Markle: UK’s Associated Newspapers was instructed by the court on Friday to print a front-page apology to Meghan Markle in the privacy invasion lawsuit. The 39-year-old wife of Britain’s Prince Harry was also awarded 450,000 pounds as a provisional payment towards her legal costs in this case.

“The Duchess of Sussex wins her legal case for copyright infringement against Associated Newspapers for articles published in The Mail on Sunday and posted on Mail Online,” reads the statement from the judge who ruled on this case.

Alongside the front-page apology, there needs to be a longer “notice” inside the newspaper under the headline, “The Duchess of Sussex,” which explicitly states that the court found “Associated Newspapers infringed her (Meghan’s) copyright by publishing extracts of her handwritten letter to her father in The Mail on Sunday and in Mail Online,” said the court statement.

The notice will also be put up on the home page of MailOnline for a duration of one week. It will include a hyperlink to the official judgment and summary under the wording, “The full judgment and the Court’s summary of it can be found here.”

In February, a judge at London’s High Court had ruled that the tabloid had breached Markle’s privacy by printing chunks of a private letter she sent to her father in 2019. After her legal team had sought a “summary judgment” in the case, the court granted an interim costs order of 450,000 pounds. Read more on that here.

The Duchess of Sussex had dubbed her victory as a “comprehensive win for privacy and copyright” because the damage they do “runs deep”. She is now based outside of the UK with husband Harry and son Archie and is expecting her second child.

“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 dehumanising practices,” Markle had said about her legal victory.
