Meghan Markle's Privacy Case Heading Back to Court as Mail on Sunday Appeals Against Ruling


Meghan Markle's Privacy Case Heading Back to Court as Mail on Sunday Appeals Against Ruling

The High Court has allowed the publishers of the Mail on Sunday to appeal against a ruling that the newspaper invaded the Duchess of Sussex's privacy, according to reports.

In February, Lord Justice Warby granted Meghan a summary judgment in relation to her privacy claim, negating the need to go to trial, as well as most of her copyright claim.

And in May, she was granted a summary judgment in relation to the remaining parts of her copyright claim, after lawyers acting on behalf of the Queen said it does not belong to the Crown.

Meghan, 39, sued Associated Newspapers Limited (ANL), the publisher of the Mail On Sunday and MailOnline, over a series of articles that reproduced parts of a handwritten letter sent to Thomas Markle, 76, in August 2018.

The newspaper confirmed that it would appeal the decision after permission was given by the Court of Appeal.
