Meghan Markle has won her privacy claim against the Mail on Sunday after the High Court ruled that the disclosure of a letter sent to her father was unlawful. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been involved with several legal cases since leaving the Royal Family – “different” to the monarchy’s usual approach, an expert claimed. Royal biographer Angela Levin spoke to BBC News about the contrast between the Queen and her granddaughter-in-law.

She said: “This is rather different, very much so.

“The Queen has a motto that says ‘don’t explain and don’t complain’.

“She doesn’t like bringing things into the public domain like that.

“Meghan is a very different type of person.”

Ms Levin continued: “She wants to sue everybody who doesn’t do what she feels is right.

“Prince Harry has joined her, and he’s got several things running through the courts at the moment as well.

“Of course, they’re entitled, if they feel things have gone wrong, to take them to court.”

Meghan Markle succeeds with privacy claim court case

The recent court win for the Duchess of Sussex related to the publication of parts of a letter to Meghan’s estranged father, Thomas Markle, in 2018 without her permission.

Meghan sued Associated Newspapers and the Mail on Sunday on the grounds of breach of copyright and privacy.

Her legal teams claimed that the letter was “confidential”.

The judge, Mr Justice Warby, has now said that the Duchess had a reasonable expectation of privacy.

On the ruling, he said: “The claimant had a reasonable expectation that the contents of the Letter would remain private. The Mail Articles interfered with that reasonable expectation.”

The Mail on Sunday has already hinted that they may be making an appeal of the verdict.

Another hearing is taking place on March 2 “to decide matters consequential on this judgment, and directions for the next steps”.

The copyright section of the Duchess’ claim, which she did not win, will be determined at a trial.
