Meghan Markle Pens Powerful Letter to Students for International Women's Day

  Meghan Markle Pens Powerful Letter to Students for International Women's Day A year ago, the Duchess of Sussex visited students at the Robert Clack Upper School in Dagenham, England.In a letter to the school, which it shared on Thursday, Prince Harry's wife wrote thanking them for the "fond memories" they gave her and acknowledged how "difficult it's been for students and families during the past year" amid the coronavirus pandemic.

A British judge has ordered the Mail on Sunday to publish a front-page statement highlighting the Duchess of Sussex's legal victory over the newspaper for breaching her copyright by publishing parts of a letter she wrote to her estranged father.

High Court justice Mark Warby said Friday that publisher Associated Newspapers must also run the statement on the MailOnline website for a week, with a link to his earlier judgement in the case.

The former Meghan Markle, 39, sued the publisher for invasion of privacy and copyright infringement over five February 2019 articles that reproduced large portions of a letter she wrote to her father, Thomas Markle, after her marriage to Prince Harry in 2018.

The judge ruled last month that the publisher had misused the duchess's private information and infringed her copyright. He said the duchess "had a reasonable expectation that the contents of the letter would remain private," and concluded the paper's publication of large chunks of it was "manifestly excessive and hence unlawful." Associated Newspapers says it plans to appeal.

The judge did not order the publisher to mention the privacy ruling in its statement, saying media coverage of the case had already "given wide publicity to the claimant's unequivocal success on the privacy claim."

And if that comes with risk of losing things, I mean, there's a lot that's been lost already.
