Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, Won Her Legal Battle Against a British Newspaper But Was Awarded Just $1.35. That’s Only Part of the Story.

From a Washington Post story by Kara Adam and William Booth headlined “Yes, Meghan was awarded just $1.35 in her privacy suit against a British tabloid. But that’s only part of the story.”

London — When Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, won her long-running legal battle against the publisher of the Mail, she hailed it as “a victory not just for me, but for anyone who has ever felt scared to stand up for what’s right.”

But readers may have wondered how significant her win against the popular tabloid really was when headlines in British newspapers zeroed in on the fact that the owner of the Mail on Sunday will pay the duchess “just £1” — or $1.35 — for privacy invasion.
