A UK court has ruled in favor of the Duchess of Sussex in a legal dispute with the conservative British newspaper ‘The Mail on Sunday’, which published a private letter from Meghan Markle to her father in 2018.
The Court of Appeal for England and Wales has dismissed an appeal from the media group ‘Associated Newspapers’, of which the conservative tabloid is part, which called for the holding of a trial in a legal dispute that has finally been won by the Duchess of Sussex for “Violation of privacy”.
“In the three years since this has started I have waited patiently,” said the Duchess of Sussex in statements collected by the BBC, adding that this is “a precedent” so that “everyone else can do the same” when ” They are violated in their private life.
The judges have highlighted that the decision “has been correct”, since “it was not necessary to publish half of the letter”, in which the duchess spoke of her relationship with Prince Harry after the celebration of their wedding, according to a statement picked up by the British chain BBC.
For their part, the lawyers of ‘Associated Newspapers’ would have learned of a statement signed by the former communication secretary of the Duchess of Jason Knauf, in which it was indicated that Markle would have written the letter knowing that at some point it could be leaked , since Knauf had an initial draft that the Duchess would have sent him in case this leak occurred.
