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.
