    The Mail On Sunday must publish a front-page statement about the Duchess of Sussex’s victory in her copyright claim against the newspaper over its publication of a letter to her estranged father.

    On Friday the UK High Court ruled that the Mail on Sunday must publish a front-page statement about the Duchess of Sussex’s copyright claim victory against the newspaper following its publication of a letter to her estranged father. 

    The newspaper published parts of a private handwritten letter the Duchess sent to her father Thomas Markle in five news articles in February 2019 – as a result, she sued the publication for "misuse of private information."

    Last month Meaghan Markle celebrated a win against the Mail on Sunday and Associated Newspapers, after the High Court in London ruled her privacy had been invaded by the publication of the leaked letter. 

    The Friday ruling comes ahead of the broadcast of an interview with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and American talk show host Oprah Winfrey.
