Just as Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were wrapping up their very successful royal tour in southern Africa in September 2019—which featured speeches about conservation and women’s empowerment, as well as baby Archie’s first official royal engagement—it was announced that Markle was suing the British tabloid Mail on Sunday for publishing a private letter she sent to her father, Thomas Markle, after the royal wedding in 2018. “We have initiated legal proceedings against the Mail on Sunday, and its parent company Associated Newspapers, over the intrusive and unlawful publication of a private letter written by the Duchess of Sussex, which is part of a campaign by this media group to publish false and deliberately derogatory stories about her, as well as her husband,” a legal spokesperson for the couple said in a statement. “Given the refusal of Associated Newspapers to resolve this issue satisfactorily, we have issued proceedings to redress this breach of privacy, infringement of copyright, and the aforementioned media agenda.
Court documents also say she suffered "tremendous emotional distress." https://t.co/NnNljbnfbR— Glamour (@glamourmag) July 2, 2020
