Prince Harry Has Filed A Libel Complaint Against Associated Newspapers Ltd.

February 24, 2022 / Posted by:

Last year, Meghan Markle won her legal battle against Associated Newspapers Ltd., the company that publishes The Mail on Sunday and The Daily Mail. You know, the one where a judge ruled that it wasn’t right The Mail on Sunday published parts of a private letter from 2018 that Meghan sent to her shady daddy, Thomas Markle, that they obtained from Thomas himself in 2019? That one. Meghan’s fight was all done and settled, with Associated Newspapers Ltd. agreeing to the judgment handed down to them. Except Prince Harry just opened up a new can of worms (he’s rich and fancy, so it’s an imported can of French silkworms) and filed a new libel complaint against Associated Newspapers Ltd.

After Meghan won her privacy case against The Mail on Sunday, Associated Newspapers Ltd. (ANL) decided to take it to an appeals court. The bad news for ANL is that the appeals court held up what was decided in High Court, and Meghan was still the winner. ANL was ordered to publish a front-page apology to Meghan, which they did, and pay 90% of her legal fees, which reportedly cost an estimated $1.88 million. Plus, Meghan was awarded a symbolic damages amount of a whole ยฃ1. Everything truly felt wrapped up, but clearly, Harry still has beef with ANL. via People magazine:

Prince Harry has launched a High Court libel action against the publisher of the Daily Mail.

Although it’s unclear which article or story the complaint is about, a spokesperson for the Duke of Sussex confirmed to People that the Duke of Sussex has filed a complaint against Associated Newspapers Limited.

So all Harry’s people would do is confirm that he’s put his lawyers to work and had them file a complaint. We don’t totally know what he’s complaining about. But Omid Scobie claims it has to do with the Mail on Sunday’s reporting about Harry offering to pay for police protection when he and his family are in the UK:


Ever since January, Harry has been feuding with the UK over security guards. Harry wants to bring his whole family, Archie and Lilibet included, back home for a visit, but he’s afraid they’ll all be mobbed by photographers and won’t feel safe. So he’s asked to pay for his own security out of pocket. The UK won’t let him, but they also won’t provide him with taxpayer-funded security. He’s threatened to sue if they continue to deny him proper security. It hasn’t been confirmed

But maybe Harry’s latest legal move on ANL has nothing to do with privacy. Maybe The Mail on Sunday published a gingersnap cookie recipe and the cracked a joke about the biscuit being more gingery than Harry. I’d complain about that too. It’s a lazy joke!
