It was March when the Duchess of Sussex learned she would be awarded £450,000 (A$800,000) for her legal win against the Mail on Sunday. A London court found the publication breached her privacy after publishing excerpts from a letter she wrote to her estranged father in 2019. The tabloid appealed the decision – and overnight, she won again… The Court of Appeal rejected Associated Newspapers’ attempt to take it back to trial – a decision the company said it was disappointed with. It’s considering another appeal – this time to the Supreme Court. Meghan said it was a win “not just for me, but for anyone who has ever felt scared to stand up for what’s right”. And she’s urged people to be “brave enough to reshape a tabloid industry that… profits from the lies and pain that they create.”
