Meghan Markle sues the Mail of Sunday newspaper for publishing her private letter unlawfully!
The Mail on Sunday published a private letter written by Meghan Markle and this has landed them in a legal soup! Now the news is that the Duchess of Sussex is taking the publication to court over this private letter publication without her consent. Publishing someone’s private letter is unlawful and Meghan is hence taking this legal recourse for it.
Meghan Markle and her lawsuit against Mail on Sunday
The wife of Prince Harry, Meghan has started a legal proceeding against the newspaper Mail on Sunday for unlawfully publishing her private letter. ‘Schillings’ is the law firm representing the Duchess of Sussex. The firm has described this publication as part of the propaganda by the media group to spread false and deliberately derogatory stories about her and her husband Prince Harry.
The firm issued a statement which said:
“…We have issued proceedings to redress this breach of privacy, infringement of copyright and the aforementioned media agenda.”
The media group has yet to comment on this lawsuit against them. There has been no apology or explanation forthcoming from the newspaper until now. Schillings stated that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would make their professional payment from their private money.
Prince Harry and his statement on this matter
Prince Harry is also disturbed by the repeated false reports published in many dailies about his wife Meghan. He issued a lengthy statement on this matter which said:
“My wife has become one of the latest victims of a British tabloid press that wages campaigns against individuals with no thought to the consequences.”
“I’ve seen what happens when someone I love is commoditised to the point that they are no longer treated or seen as a real person. I lost my mother and now I watch my wife falling victim to the same powerful forces,”
Prince Harry was small when he lost his mother Princess Diana in a car crash in Paris. At that time, the paparazzi were hotly chasing her for news. This was in 1997 and now 20 years down the lane, the press has taken to Prince Harry’s wife Meghan similar to how they used to chase his mother Princess Diana. After Princess Diana married into the royal family of England, she was the most photographed women in the world.
