Meghan Markle will receive £1 from newspaper for her breach of privacy

Meghan Markle – the Duchess of Sussex – will receive £1 from a national newspaper after her privacy was breached.

The Mail on Sunday will also pay an undisclosed sum for copyright infringement.

The newspaper has already made a first instalment of £300,000 towards the Duchess’ legal costs.

That total legal sum is said to be near a seven-figure amount.

The Duchess won a High Court case against Associated Newspapers Ltd.

Her legal team argued the publication of extracts of a handwritten letter to her father had breached her privacy.

The Duchess agreed to accept “nominal” damages of £1.

However, she has won a confidential “substantial payment” based on the profits made by the newspaper.

The money would be donated to charity, said a spokesperson for Ms Markle.

The newspaper has already issued a printed acknowledgement of the legal ruling.
