Meghan's case to be acknowledged in print and online
Meghan's privacy case victory is set to feature on the front page of The Mail on Sunday, as per the Duchess of Sussex's request earlier this week. As Hello! shares, Associated Newspapers Limited was ordered to run "on a single occasion a statement on the front page" apologizing to Meghan, who sued them for publishing several portions of a private letter she sent to her father, Thomas Markle Sr., in 2019.
On Friday, Lord Justice Warby also decreed that ANL had "misused her private information and infringed her copyright." He has ordered them to print an additional statement on the third page of The Mail on Sunday, and the publication's website, MailOnline, is required to share the statement "for a period of one week."
Meghan's apology from newspaper: here's what it will say
Meghan will receive a front page statement from The Mail on Sunday that directly references her win in the privacy case against ANL, as well as the declaration of Friday's ruling. "The court has given judgment for the Duchess of Sussex on her claim for copyright infringement," the statement is said to begin.
"The court found that Associated Newspapers infringed her copyright by publishing extracts of her handwritten letter to her father in The Mail On Sunday and in MailOnline," it continues. "There will be a trial of the remedies to which the Duchess is entitled, at which the court will decide whether the Duchess is the exclusive owner of copyright in all parts of the letter, or whether any other person owns a share."
