  • February 14 - Duchess of Sussex wins privacy claim against Mail on Sunday

    Hello Everyone,

    The very-much anticipated interview with Oprah was released in the US yesterday on CBS. For the record, no subject was off the table and the Duke & Duchess of Sussex have not been paid for their participation.

    If you are based in the UK, the interview will air tonight on ITV (9pm).

    Please see below a resume from The Telegraph of what The Duke & Duchess of Sussex discussed with Oprah during the two-hour interview:

    The Duchess of Sussex has revealed she contemplated suicide but was rebuffed when she sought help from the Royal Household. She told Oprah Winfrey that she felt so unsupported and alone: “I just didn’t want to be alive any more.”

    Meghan, 39, said she “went to the institution for help” but was told it would not be forthcoming as it “wouldn’t be good for the institution”.

    The Duchess said that, in her desperation, she even went to the HR department but was told that while they sympathised, they could not do anything as she “wasn’t staff”.

    Among a series of dramatic and damaging revelations, she revealed that one member of the Royal family raised concerns during “several conversations” with Prince Harry about the darkness of their unborn child’s skin.

    She suggested that such worries were one of the reasons Buckingham Palace decided that Archie, when he was born, could not be made a prince.

    The Duchess also claimed that her sister-in-law, the Duchess of Cambridge, had once made her cry, as opposed to the other way round.

    The couple said they had been left unprotected and let down by the Royal family, suggesting they were eventually forced to walk away when their appeals for help fell on deaf ears. They said they were eventually “cut off financially”.

    Prince Harry, who joined his wife and Ms Winfrey for the second half of the interview, revealed that his relationship with his father, the Prince of Wales, had also suffered significant damage.

    He said Prince Charles had stopped taking his calls after he“took matters into his own hands”.

    With sadness, he added: “There’s a lot to work through there. I feel really let down because he’s been through something similar. He knows what pain feels like and Archie’s his grandson.”

    The Duke suggested that other members of the Royal family had been jealous of the ease with which Meghan fitted into royal life and the phenomenal public reaction she received.

    In lighter moments, the couple revealed they had secretly married in their back garden three days before the spectacle of their big royal wedding in Windsor. The ceremony was conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury.

    “It was just the three of us,” the Duchess smiled.

    The couple also revealed that they were expecting a girl. It is thought to be the first time a member of the Royal family has revealed the gender of an unborn baby

    Hello Guys;

    What an amazing news! The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have announced they are expecting their second child. The couple shared a black and white picture of themselves, taken by longtime friend of the couple, Misan Harriman.

    A spokesperson for The Duke and Duchess of Sussex said:

    “We can confirm that Archie is going to be a big brother.

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are overjoyed to be expecting their second child.”

    Last November, the Duchess of Sussex wrote a deeply personal account of suffering a miscarriage after she decided to speak out in order to encourage others to do the same, to encourage others to listen and in doing so, lighten the load for others who are grieving.

    The couple already have a son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor who was born on 6th May 2019.

    Congratulations to The Duke & Duchess of Sussex, we wish you all the best!

    The Duchess claimed victory on both privacy and copyright claims as experts say costs could reach £5m.

    The Duchess of Sussex has claimed a victory over “moral exploitation” after winning her High Court privacy case against the Mail on Sunday.

    As a judge on Thursday ruled that the publication of extracts of a private letter she sent to her father was “manifestly excessive” and unlawful, she declared: “We have all won.”

    The Duchess hailed a “comprehensive” victory on both privacy and copyright, saying: “We all lose when misinformation sells more than truth, when moral exploitation sells more than decency, and when companies create their business model to profit from people’s pain.”

    The Duchess sued Associated Newspapers for breach of privacy and copyright relating to the publication of five articles – two on MailOnline and three in the Mail on Sunday – in February 2019.

    The strategy, deemed risky by many, was vindicated as she successfully applied for a summary judgment, a legal step that will now see the case resolved in her favour without trial.

    The move will avoid the prospect of having to face her father, Thomas Markle, in a high stakes courtroom clash that could have damaged both her brand and reputation.

    However, media experts described it as “a bad day for press freedom,” acknowledging that the case was widely expected to go to trial so the evidence could be tested.

    The ruling also means the testimony of four Buckingham Palace aides who said they could “shed light” on the issues at stake, as well as that of five of Meghan’s friends who spoke about her to People magazine, will not be heard.

    One media law expert, who declined to be named, said the costs of the case were likely to be in the region of £5m.

    The lawyer said damages for the breach of privacy could be as high as £300,000 but that the award for the infringement of copyright could far exceed that because the Duchess is entitled to seek “an account of profits” – that is any profit made by Associated Newspapers as a result of articles using her letter to her father.

    A hearing would have to assess what profits were made by the publisher’s as a result but could potentially be huge.

    In the year ending September 2019, covering the period when the letter was published in February, Associated Newspapers made a pre-tax profit of £59 million and after tax of £47 million. A court would have to decide the extent of the profits the newspaper and website made from publishing its articles on the letter.

    Mr Justice Warby, who heard the summary judgment application over two days at the High Court, said the Duchess had a “reasonable expectation” that the contents of her five-page letter would remain private.

    “The majority of what was published was about the claimant’s own behaviour, her feelings of anguish about her father’s behaviour, as she saw it, and the resulting rift between them,” he said. “These are inherently private and personal matters.”

    The judge said the “only tenable justification” for publication would have been to correct some inaccuracies about the letter contained in an article in People magazine.

    The article, headlined The Truth About Meghan, was based on anonymous interviews with five of her friends and provided the first public reference to the letter.

    Mr Justice Warby went on: “The inescapable conclusion is that… the disclosures made were not a necessary or proportionate means of serving that purpose. For the most part they did not serve that purpose at all.”

    He added: “Taken as a whole, the disclosures were manifestly excessive and hence, unlawful. There is no prospect that a different judgment would be reached after a trial.”

    The judge also found that the newspaper articles infringed the Duchess’s copyright as they “copied a large and important proportion of the work’s original literary content”.

    But he acknowledged there was a question over whether she was the “sole author” amid claims the Kensington Palace communications team helped write it.

    The judge said a partial trial on the copyright could go ahead but warned Associated Newspapers against the wisdom of doing so.

    “The Court regards the defendant’s factual and legal case as occupying ‘the shadowland between improbability and unreality,” he said.

    Despite the breach of privacy ruling, the judge published previously unseen extracts of the letter in his 53-page judgment, insisting it was necessary to explain his conclusions.

    They included a reference to her desire to protect the privacy of future children and Thomas Markle’s attempt to cover up the fact that he staged paparazzi pictures.

    “We… told you if we tried to protect you from the story running (something we’ve never attempted to do for anyone – ourselves included) that we wouldn’t be able to use that strength to protect our own children one day,” she said. “Even knowing that you said it wasn’t true.”

    The Duchess also berated her father for his “obsession with tabloid media” and said his fascination had turned into paranoia about how he was portrayed.

    “To suffer through this media circus created by you is all the more devastating,” she added, revealing that she “refuses to read any press”.

    In a lengthy statement released after the ruling was handed down, the Duchess accused the Mail on Sunday of “illegal and dehumanizing practices” and said such “tactics” had been used too long without consequence.

    “I share this victory with each of you—because we all deserve justice and truth, and we all deserve better,” she said.

    Mark Stephens, a leading media and human rights lawyer with Howard Kennedy solicitors, said: “This is a bad day for press freedom and a good day for the Duchess. Nobody saw this judgment coming. People expected this to go to trial and test the evidence.”

    Steven Heffer, head of media and privacy law at Collyer Bristow, said: “This is a great victory for the Duchess and clearly the Mail on Sunday would have loved the drama of a big trial of which they are now deprived.” He said the newspaper was always likely to lose the case because this was “always a very private letter”.

    An Associated Newspapers spokesperson said they were “very surprised” by the ruling and disappointed that they had been denied the chance to have the evidence tested in open court.

    It has yet to decide whether to appeal.

    When the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced that they would put guest speakers at centre stage in their new podcast, few would have expected to hear from their toddler Archie.

    But Prince Harry and Meghan’s 19-month-old son made a surprise cameo appearance at the end of the first episode, released on Tuesday, revealing a slight American accent as he wished listeners a happy new year.

    Making his first public broadcast in very modern style, Archie took to the microphone to say “Happy” after his father said it, then copied Meghan and said “New” before completing the phrase without prompting. “Boom,” said Harry as the three burst into giggles.

    The young royal featured at the end of a “Holiday special” episode from Archewell Audio, Harry and Meghan’s newly-formed production company, which has signed an exclusive multimillion-pound partnership with Spotify.

    The podcast, which Spotify said would produce “programming that uplifts and entertains audiences around the world”, comes after the couple’s multimillion-pound Netflix deal that will see them produce documentaries and feature films for the streaming service. The deals form part of the couple’s efforts to become financially independent after stepping down as senior royals in January.

    The podcast ends with the couple broadcasting the gospel song This Little Light of Mine which was played at the end of their wedding.

    Quoting Martin Luther King, Meghan said the song was “the music that we wanted playing when we started our lives together. Because as we all know, ‘darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that.”’

    In a reference to the couple’s tumultuous year, which saw them announce their exit as senior royals, move to Canada and then California and pursue multiple legal actions against various media outlets, Meghan says: “From us I’ll say no matter what life throws at you guys, trust us when we say, love wins.” Harry added: “Love always wins.”

    The couple had asked a string of famous friends, activists and campaigners to reflect on 2020 for the debut podcast, including Sir Elton John, comedian James Corden and tennis star Naomi Osaka.

    In his audio diary for the podcast, John, 73, said that as a recovering alcoholic he had attended weekly Alcoholics Anonymous meetings over Zoom since the pandemic began, hailing the video platform as a “lifesaver”.

    He added: “I hope after this awful pandemic has passed, and we can go back to some sort of normality, that we have become better people – and I hope for healing.

    “It’s been an awful time for people. People have lost loved ones, people have lost their businesses, they’ve lost work. It’s been an awful time for people, so I hope that we can heal in 2021.”

    The Duchess of Sussex, revealed in a deeply personal essay in the New York Times Opinion section today that she had miscarried her second child with Prince Harry in July, bringing light to an experience shared by many grieving families who often suffer in silence.

    THE LOSSES WE SHARE

    Perhaps the path to healing begins with three simple words: Are you OK?

    It was a July morning that began as ordinarily as any other day: Make breakfast. Feed the dogs. Take vitamins. Find that missing sock. Pick up the rogue crayon that rolled under the table. Throw my hair in a ponytail before getting my son from his crib.

    After changing his diaper, I felt a sharp cramp. I dropped to the floor with him in my arms, humming a lullaby to keep us both calm, the cheerful tune a stark contrast to my sense that something was not right.

    I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child, that I was losing my second.

    Hours later, I lay in a hospital bed, holding my husband’s hand. I felt the clamminess of his palm and kissed his knuckles, wet from both our tears. Staring at the cold white walls, my eyes glazed over. I tried to imagine how we’d heal.

    I recalled a moment last year when Harry and I were finishing up a long tour in South Africa. I was exhausted. I was breastfeeding our infant son, and I was trying to keep a brave face in the very public eye.

    “Are you OK?” a journalist asked me. I answered him honestly, not knowing that what I said would resonate with so many — new moms and older ones, and anyone who had, in their own way, been silently suffering. My off-the-cuff reply seemed to give people permission to speak their truth. But it wasn’t responding honestly that helped me most, it was the question itself.

    “Thank you for asking,” I said. “Not many people have asked if I’m OK.”

    Sitting in a hospital bed, watching my husband’s heart break as he tried to hold the shattered pieces of mine, I realized that the only way to begin to heal is to first ask, “Are you OK?”

    Are we? This year has brought so many of us to our breaking points. Loss and pain have plagued every one of us in 2020, in moments both fraught and debilitating. We’ve heard all the stories: A woman starts her day, as normal as any other, but then receives a call that she’s lost her elderly mother to Covid-19. A man wakes feeling fine, maybe a little sluggish, but nothing out of the ordinary. He tests positive for the coronavirus and within weeks, he — like hundreds of thousands of others — has died.

    A young woman named Breonna Taylor goes to sleep, just as she’s done every night before, but she doesn’t live to see the morning because a police raid turns horribly wrong. George Floyd leaves a convenience store, not realizing he will take his last breath under the weight of someone’s knee, and in his final moments, calls out for his mom. Peaceful protests become violent. Health rapidly shifts to sickness. In places where there was once community, there is now division.

    On top of all of this, it seems we no longer agree on what is true. We aren’t just fighting over our opinions of facts; we are polarized over whether the fact is, in fact, a fact. We are at odds over whether science is real. We are at odds over whether an election has been won or lost. We are at odds over the value of compromise.

    That polarization, coupled with the social isolation required to fight this pandemic, has left us feeling more alone than ever.

    When I was in my late teens, I sat in the back of a taxi zipping through the busyness and bustle of Manhattan. I looked out the window and saw a woman on her phone in a flood of tears. She was standing on the sidewalk, living out a private moment very publicly. At the time, the city was new to me, and I asked the driver if we should stop to see if the woman needed help.

    He explained that New Yorkers live out their personal lives in public spaces. “We love in the city, we cry in the street, our emotions and stories there for anybody to see,” I remember him telling me. “Don’t worry, somebody on that corner will ask her if she’s OK.”

    Now, all these years later, in isolation and lockdown, grieving the loss of a child, the loss of my country’s shared belief in what’s true, I think of that woman in New York. What if no one stopped? What if no one saw her suffering? What if no one helped?

    I wish I could go back and ask my cabdriver to pull over. This, I realize, is the danger of siloed living — where moments sad, scary or sacrosanct are all lived out alone. There is no one stopping to ask, “Are you OK?”

    Losing a child means carrying an almost unbearable grief, experienced by many but talked about by few. In the pain of our loss, my husband and I discovered that in a room of 100 women, 10 to 20 of them will have suffered from miscarriage. Yet despite the staggering commonality of this pain, the conversation remains taboo, riddled with (unwarranted) shame, and perpetuating a cycle of solitary mourning.

    Some have bravely shared their stories; they have opened the door, knowing that when one person speaks truth, it gives license for all of us to do the same. We have learned that when people ask how any of us are doing, and when they really listen to the answer, with an open heart and mind, the load of grief often becomes lighter — for all of us. In being invited to share our pain, together we take the first steps toward healing.
    So this Thanksgiving, as we plan for a holiday unlike any before — many of us separated from our loved ones, alone, sick, scared, divided and perhaps struggling to find something, anything, to be grateful for — let us commit to asking others, “Are you OK?” As much as we may disagree, as physically distanced as we may be, the truth is that we are more connected than ever because of all we have individually and collectively endured this year.

    We are adjusting to a new normal where faces are concealed by masks, but it’s forcing us to look into one another’s eyes — sometimes filled with warmth, other times with tears. For the first time, in a long time, as human beings, we are really seeing one another.

    Are we OK?

    We will be.

    Hello everyone,

    This week, the Duke & Duchess of Sussex made another surprise appearance in Los Angeles. On Monday 31st August, Meghan and Prince Harry visited the Assistance League of LA’s Preschool Learning Center, which is attended by children from low income families.

    The timing of the engagement was significant because it fell on the 23rd anniversary of Princess Diana’s death.

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex reportedly spent the morning gardening with the children. During the session, Harry & Meghan planted forget-me-nots, Diana’s favourite flower, in the Princess’s memory.

We truly appreciate their time and care for our students. 🌱 For more than 100 years, @assistanceleagueoflosangeles has been providing early education services to children in need.

    Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan, having resettled in California, on Wednesday unveiled new Hollywood careers.

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have founded a yet-to-be-named production company and signed a multiyear deal with Netflix, which will pay them to make documentaries, docu-series, feature films, scripted shows and children’s programming — giving the couple a global platform six months after their dramatic decampment from the House of Windsor.

    Harry and Meghan may appear on camera in documentary programming. But she has repeatedly made it clear that she has no plans to return to acting, having last appeared in the cable drama “Suits,” which concluded its run in 2019. Their content will be exclusive to Netflix.

    “Our focus will be on creating content that informs but also gives hope,” the couple said in a statement. “As new parents, making inspirational family programming is also important to us.” They added that Netflix’s “unprecedented reach will help us share impactful content that unlocks action.” Netflix has 193 million subscribers worldwide.

    It is unclear how much Harry and Meghan will be paid, given their lack of producing experience. A Netflix spokeswoman declined to comment.

    The streaming service, however, is known for backing up Brink’s trucks when it wants to be in business with high-profile people, particularly when other entertainment companies also want their services. In recent months, Harry and Meghan have quietly talked with Disney and Apple. Variety reported earlier this month that they had met with NBCUniversal.

    The couple has been living in the Los Angeles area since March, staying for a time at a Beverly Hills mansion owned by Tyler Perry. They soon filed an invasion of privacy lawsuit against tabloid photographers, saying that paparazzi had flown drones overhead in an extreme effort to capture images of their son, Archie, who turned one in May. Harry, 35, and Meghan, 39, have since bought a $14.7 million home in Montecito, an affluent town located about an hour north of Malibu that is also home to Oprah Winfrey and Ellen DeGeneres.

    “We’re incredibly proud they have chosen Netflix as their creative home and are excited about telling stories with them that can help build resilience and increase understanding for audiences everywhere,” Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s co-chief executive and chief content officer, said in a statement.

    Netflix is under pressure to keep its content pipelines flowing as it competes for viewers with Disney+, Amazon Prime Video, HBO Max, Hulu, Peacock and the traditional broadcast networks. Family programming is particularly important to Netflix, and Harry and Meghan already have an animated series in development which is focused on inspiring women. Last week, Netflix released “Rising Phoenix,” a documentary about the Paralympic Games; Harry, who founded the Invictus Games for wounded veterans, appears in the film.

    Content centered on social messages — racial justice, gender equity, mental well-being, environmental stewardship — has been hot in Hollywood for some time, and Netflix and Participant Media, founded by the eBay billionaire Jeff Skoll, have been at the center. Participant and Netflix backed Ava DuVernay’s acclaimed 2019 mini-series “When They See Us,” which depicted the excruciating toll that persecution and incarceration had on the teenage boys known as the Central Park Five. In 2018, Netflix struck a deal with Barack and Michelle Obama to produce shows and films. That partnership in March yielded “Crip Camp,” a feel-good documentary about the origins of the disability rights movement that is an early favorite to win the 2021 Oscar for best nonfiction film.

    Meghan and Harry, the second son of Prince Charles, abruptly announced in January that they planned to step back from their royal duties, seek financial independence and spend part of the year living in North America. It triggered the most serious crisis for the British royal family since the death of Harry’s mother, Princess Diana, in a car crash in 1997. The news media labeled the fracas Megxit.

    After emotionally charged negotiations, Queen Elizabeth II granted the couple’s wishes in return for their agreeing not to use their most exalted titles, His Royal Highness and Her Royal Highness. The couple also agreed to give up public funding — setting off a tabloid guessing game about how they would finance their lifestyle, including paying for security.

    Harry and Meghan used to draw some income from the Duchy of Cornwall, a hereditary estate owned by Prince Charles, but that ended with their departure from Britain. Harry also inherited several million dollars from his late mother. Before their 2018 marriage, Meghan, then Meghan Markle, worked as an actress in “Suits.”

    The couple’s production company will operate independently from their charitable foundation, which is called Archewell. The couple shut down their previous philanthropic endeavor, SussexRoyal, in March after they agreed to stop using the term “royal” for commercial or charitable activities.
