Meghan Markle had some good news coming her way when she won the copyright claim over the publication of her personal letter to her father. She had written the letter to her father before her royal wedding to Prince Harry.She won the claim over Associated Newspapers, which is based in Northcliffe House in Kensington. Established in 1905 it owns MailOnline, The Mail on Sunday, Metro.co.uk, inews.co.uk, i newspaper, Daily Mail and Metro. Meghan Markle scored against the Associated newspapers by winning an additional copyright claim regarding the publication of her letter to her father. The court in the UK ruled in favor of Meghan giving her the ownership of the copyright of her letter to her father.
Prior to her wedding Meghan had written to her father Thomas Markle and this decision was taken in a remote High Court hearing in London. The claim made by the UK tabloid was that Jason Knauf who was the former Chief of Communications, Kensington Palace, was the owner of a part of the copyright of the letter and also claimed that it had been instrumental in drafting the letter and had seen an earlier version of it. In a recent hearing, however, Jason Knauf denied any role in drafting the letter. The privacy lawsuit regarding the tabloid has already gone in favor of Meghan Markle.
In February 2019 there were five articles that were published by the UK newspaper and against whom Meghan had filed a lawsuit. Excerpts of her handwritten letter to Thomas Markle, her father had been published. He had not attended his daughter Meghan’s wedding to Prince Harry in May 2018.
Another dose of good news for Meghan is the upcoming release of her first children’s book, in June this year, which is based on the inspiration she has drawn from her husband Prince Harry and son Archie.
