Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, won the last stage of her legal battle against the Sunday tabloid on Thursday Mail on Sunday and her publishing group, Associated Newspaper Limited (ANL), for having published part of a letter that she had sent to her father.

The Court of Appeal of the Royal Courts of London rejected the appeal filed by ANL in relation to the publication of five articles that include paragraphs of said “personal and private” letter that Meghan wrote to Thomas Markle in August 2018, a few months after for her to marry Prince Harry, grandson of Elizabeth II.

Previously, a judge had already ruled in favor of Meghan by the excerpts of the letter that appeared in the newspaper.
