Prince Harry wins 'substantial damages' in libel battle against Daily Mail

Meghan Markle slammed a report that claimed she had changed her name on Archie's birth certificate.

Harry and wife Meghan Markle have been locked in an increasingly bitter war with the media, particularly the tabloid press, since they stepped back from frontline royal duties early past year.

In documents filed with the court just before Christmas, his lawyers said Harry had been "personally affronted" by the articles which had "caused huge damage to his reputation". A spokesperson for the Duke of Sussex also said that the "Mail on Sunday and MailOnline publicly admitted in open court that they pushed a completely false and defamatory story".

In a remote hearing held at the High Court on February 1, Harry's legal team said Associated Newspapers Ltd. accept the allegations in the pieces were false, "albeit after considerable damage was already done". "They did no such thing".

"It's extraordinary and raises all kinds of questions about what the Sussexes were thinking", says Lady Campbell, who has published a number of books on the British royal family.

Lawyer Jenny Afia, representing Harry, said the publisher has accepted that allegations that he had turned his back on the force were false.

"The unprecedented move could be seen as a snub to the Cambridges who have included Kate's names on her children's certificates".

Mr Justice Nicklin is expected to hear details of the settlement of Harry's claim against Associated Newspapers at a brief remote hearing on Monday. His lawyer also said he would donate the damages to his Invictus Games Foundation charity so "he could feel something good had come out of the situation".

Both stories alleged that the prince had "snubbed" the Royal Marines and the British military and ignored correspondence from Lord Dannatt, a former Chief of the General Staff.

"Meghan's title is HRH The Duchess of Sussex, and therefore that is what her name is", he said.

The Duke of Sussex was appointed Captain General Royal Marines by the Queen in 2017, but is not using the title at the moment following the Sussexes stepping back as senior members of the Royal Family in 2020.

Meghan's team has lodged an application for a summary judgment in her case against ANL for publishing her letter, hoping to avoid a high-profile public trial.
