Meghan’s lawsuit against the publisher of the Mail on Sunday for violation of privacy and copyright.
The court document shows that Meghan Markle felt unprotected by Royals and could not defend herself in any way from the media during pregnancy. They had forbidden it.
Meghan Markle felt unprotected by the Royal family
The Duchess of Sussex’s remarks emerged from the latest submissions in her legal action against publisher of the Mail on Sunday and Mail Online after included a letter that she sent to her father in 2018.
She is suing for breach of privacy and copyright. But the publishers denied the claim and said that it would hotly contest the case. Her lawyer said Meghan became the subject of a large number of false and damaging articles by the UK tabloid media. Specifically by the defendant, which caused tremendous emotional distress and damage to her mental health.
Security costs and demages
Markle’s legal argueds that the security costs of her wedding to Prince Harry were far outweighed by the tourism revenue it generated.
In fact, they amount to more than £1bn.
Because of that, she is seeking damages. She has said they will be donated to an anti-bullying charity organisation. From Associated Newspapers for alleged misuse of private information, copyright infringement and breach of the Data Protection Act.
Issues between Meghan and her father
Then a preliminary hearing in May, the judge struck out parts of the duchess’s claim against the publisher. Including an allegation that it acted “dishonestly” by leaving out certain passages of the letter from her father Thomas Markle.
Justice Warby also struck out allegations that the publisher “stirred up” issues between Meghan and her father, and that it had an “agenda” of publishing intrusive or offensive stories about her.
