The Duchess of Sussex is unhappy and has launched a lawsuit against the Mail on Sunday and Mail Online. 

The lawsuit stems from articles and publications of letters sent to her father Thomas Markle in 2018 in which she claims copyright infringement and breach of privacy. 

She says she suffered "tremendous emotional distress" over the publication. 

“The Claimant had become 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.”

In reference to interviews that five of the Duchess’s friends gave to a US magazine in February 2019, the documents add: “As her friends had never seen her in this state before, they were rightly concerned for her welfare, specifically, as she was pregnant, unprotected by the Institution, and prohibited from defending herself.”

Justice Warby has already spoke on some of the claims. 

“Some are struck out on the further or alternative ground that they are inadequately detailed,” Justice Warby said, adding that he had attempted to confine the case to what is “reasonably necessary and proportionate for the purpose of doing justice between these parties”.

“I do not consider that the allegations struck out on that basis go to the ‘heart’ of the case, which at its core concerns the publication of five articles disclosing the words of, and information drawn from, the letter written by the claimant to her father in August 2018.”

The Associated Papers who owns bother publications denies the allegations.
