Meghan Markle latest news – Harry and Meghan’s son Archie is already learning to count and ‘keeps saying two’

COPYRIGHT OF MEGHAN’S LETTER TO DAD ‘DOESN’T BELONG TO THE CROWN’

Meghan Markle, 39, sued Associated Newspapers Limited (ANL), which is also the publisher of MailOnline, over a series of articles which reproduced parts of a “personal and private” letter to her dad, Thomas Markle, 76.

She claimed the five articles, published in print and online in February 2019, misused her private information, infringed her copyright and breached the Data Protection Act.

In February, the High Court granted Meghan summary judgement, meaning she won that part of the case without having to go to trial, as well as most of her copyright claim.

This week, Lord Justice Warby also granted summary judgement in relation to the remaining parts of the duchess’s copyright claim. ANL previously said it believed Mr Knauf was a co-author of the letter and the publisher argued that meant that the letter belonged to the Crown.

But lawyers acting on behalf of the Queen said any copyright in the letter does not belong to the Crown, the High Court heard.
