Meghan Markle will be paid one pound in compensation after she won the lawsuit against the British newspaper group Associated Newspapers.
In May last year, the newspaper group was convicted of violating privacy after the tabloid newspaper Mail on Sunday published excerpts from a letter that Duchess Meghan had written to her father.
An appeals court upheld the ruling earlier in December. It believes that the Duchess had reasonable grounds to expect privacy in this case, the three judges concluded.
On Wednesday, it was announced that Markle has been awarded compensation of one British pound for the violation of her privacy. This corresponds to 12 Norwegian kroner. The newspaper group has also been sentenced to pay an unknown sum for infringement of the Duchess’s copyright.
In addition, the Associated Newspapers must cover £ 300,000 of the Duchess’ legal costs, equivalent to NOK 3.6 million, according to documents published by the group’s lawyers.
The newspaper group says that they are considering appealing the case to the Supreme Court.
Markle and her husband Prince Harry live today in California in the USA after they resigned their royal duties in 2019. They have taken legal action against a number of media houses that they believe have violated their privacy.
