Meghan filed a lawsuit against Associated Newspapers Limited (ANL), publisher of Mail Online, over five articles that reproduced parts of a “personal and private” letter to Thomas Markle 77, in August 2018.

The duchess won her case earlier this year when a High Court judge ruled in her favour without a full trial. The Judge ordered the publisher to print a statement on the front page of Mail On Sunday and a notice on page three of the paper stating it “infringed her copyright” by publishing parts of the letter to Mr Markle. ANL was also asked to pay 90 percent of Meghan’s estimated $1.88 million legal expenses.

Lord Justice Warby later ruled that the statement did not have to be published “in the same position, and be in the same size font, as the front-page trailer complained of”.

ANL however brought an appeal against that decision and, at a three-day hearing in November, argued the case should go to a trial on Meghan’s claims against the publisher,  including breach of privacy and copyright.
