Mystery Meg

‘Daily Star’ hilariously mocks the Duchess of Sussex and in doing so turns her into ‘Mystery Meg’

Yesterday, the Daily Mail’s Richard Eden tweeted to share the best of the coverage of the former Meghan Markle’s High Court victory over the very publication he works for.

 

Featuring an image of a “woman” with her eyes blacked out, the accompanying text from the Daily Star read:

 

“A publicity-shy woman has won her privacy claim against a newspaper over the publication of a letter to her estranged father.”

 

“The 39-year-old – married to a ginger bloke formerly of this land – sued a Brit publisher over a series of articles which reproduced parts of the letter sent to her 76-year-old dad in August 2018.”

 

“She is seeking damages for alleged misuse of private information, copyright infringement and breach of the Data Protection Act.”

 

Elsewhere last month, the Duchess of Sussex made another first in having her former name turned into both a noun and a verb. Now, we suggest that it is time for her to do something else: Learn the art of silence.

Mystery Meg – Richard Eden’s missive proved popular and was retweeted 115 times and liked 684 times by 11.30am on Saturday. One response to it read: “It’s brilliant & I propose more of the MSM, especially all those banned from speaking to the dastardly duo, do the same or even better, refuse to report on anything they do.”

  1. A privacy loving couple, who alongside a photo, just had to tell the world they are about to drop another child into the grand scheme of things. I am so utterly bored by this totally irrelevant news that is overpowered by Brexit, Trump, Myanmar.

  2. Can’t stand Harry Hewitt or MEgan Merkle stay in yankie land don’t come back and get rid of the stupidity called monarchy Federal republic with a written constitution instead
