I don't think that was Madame Maseau's view, but rather what the lawyers are trying to paint in order to say the damages were excessive. Their point is no longer that they violated her privacy. However, now it's if the damage to her justified. If we really get down to it, bringing Meghan's modelling shots into this in the first place is absurd. She has never posed topless in any of those photos. Fashion shoots are often provocative, but not going over that line for the most part. So it still doesn't jive with their argument that the damage should be less.

So what? Times have changed and maybe the Royal family would have been happier with Koo Stark than Sarah Ferguson as Duchess of York. Who knows? As long as Meghan behaves as Harry's wife, she could have done a lot more than she actually did in her past.
To be fair to Cressida and Amelia, being an actress or a model doesn't make someone trashy per se.

A few years ago I went topless at a lake , it wasn't private property or anything like that and I wasn't the only one . It was also not a nude beach area , just a local lake that had not been invaded by tourists . I'd be pissed if somebody had taken a picture and put it online somewhere, I didn't consent to that . The implied consent to see my like that was only for the people around me in various stages of undressed and swimwear themselves . Just because somebody is naked doesn't mean it's a free for all picture buffet.

An apology and retraction from the Mirror to The Duchess of Sussex on this matter.

Meghan Markle's lawyers have informed us, and we accept, that no provocative images of Meghan Markle were used in the proceedings. We apologise for our error.

Bet that wasnt on the front page as glaringly as the false story was!!!!! And all of those sites who quoted the Mirror's false story aren't going to publish the apology either!

Thanks for sharing the update on the appeal. I had a feeling that they were going to lose.
