If you wish to discuss the relationship between Harry, Meghan and members of the BRF, please do so in the Relationship Between Members of the BRF thread. Articles about the media that aren’t directly related to the lawsuit, are off-topic and will be deleted. As are discussions about other royals.

You can take the discussion about Harry and Meghan’s future to the Future Duties and Roles thread.

And lastly, let’s keep politics out of the thread. Thanks.

Harry is too old, to revenge his mother or something.
The Duke is not revenging his mother. He is protecting his family. He does the same as Swedish, Dutch and Monegasque royals before him: asking Justice to enforce that the human right on a private- and family life, home and correspondence (Art 8 ECHR) also covers his family. The EU Courts already ruled that the "public interest" is not "the interest of the public". It means British Justice will have to give an opinion if publishing a private letter or private telephone conversations are justified with the appeal: "it interests our public".

Glad I was able to clarify your misinterpretation.

Another Guardian article. I don't think it's been posted. Contains the interesting point of view of the editor of Majesty Magazine Ingrid Seward.

Whatever happens I hope it's all resolved either way as soon as possible. I don't know what the long term effects of all this will be.

Notice the person that was quoted in that article showed how she could care less about why Harry had to make the statement about the unacceptable treatment his wife is receiving. She even went on to accuse Meghan of making Harry make the statement because she’s American and that’s how Americans are. Folks like her don’t care about the abuse Meghan is being hit with. That’s why Harry is so upset. Folks just don’t care. That’s a real problem.

Oh hell yeah Harry going personally after Piers Morgan. The Website/agency who broke the scoop about the 2 harry's lawsuits followed up with this about the complaints

https://www.bylineinvestigates.com/m...d-crime-groups

Since Piers bragged about knowing Diana in his rant last week, even better her own son, he will have the opportunity to have the stage all for himself on the witness stand

The phone hacking suit has nothing to do with revenge .There is still a backlog of cases that were brought to light by Leveson



https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/...-phone-hacking
Quote:
It is understood there is a six-year limit on claims, which begins when the claimant first learns about the offence. A source with knowledge of the case said it was part of the round of phone-hacking claims being put together by solicitors for this autumn. Newspaper groups will now be required to provide any evidence that indicates Harry could have been a victim.
The lengthy legal process means any potential trial involving Harry would be unlikely to take place before October 2020. Court listings show he has issued two claims: one against News Group, which published the News of the World until its closure, as well as the Sun; and the second against Mirror Group Newspapers, which owns the Daily Mirror and Sunday Mirror.

When the lawsuit was announced against the MoS, the thing that jumped out at me most was the statement that should they win their case, monies awarded would be donated to a anti-bullying campaign. Right there you see Harry and Meghan using this lawsuit to further their campaign for mental health and bullying. Its like they've said "no more" to the bullies on the school playground and have gone to the principal's office and the principal's office has contacted the Board of Education and the ball is rolling in the best way to "fight back" against being bullied. They have a legal case in the publishing of a private letter written by Meghan and that's the route they chose to take. Its the legal route to take.

Its a personal thing for Harry and Meghan yet they're using it as a prime example of getting the public on board and urging people that have similar problems or even kids with bullies on the school playground that there are ways and means of handling the problems they face. The "when they go low, go high" kind of thing. Harry and Meghan are, as you say Gawin, using "the power & influence their positions afford them to champion the causes they care about." I believe this is why they went public with Harry's heartfelt statement about the lawsuit.

I have no idea or clue how this all will end but its making waves and garnering attention world wide. I sincerely hope that Harry and Meghan prevail in this case.

What about other members of the BRF and many, many British people in the public eye that have sued the newspapers because "The public is interested" isn't the same as "In the Public Interest" Including his own father and brother. Because she's American? The Guardian usually prides itself on being better than that, although it often isn't.

Harry has always been perfectly capable of making his own decisions before he met Meghan. You can see that in his passion projects both then and now. Founding The Invictus Games and Sentebale, not to mention being publicly furious he was unable to go to Iraq etc don't show a weak willed guy who needs his domineering wife to force him into writing passionate letters on her and their son's behalf. Even his less wise escapades in his younger years hardly show a shrinking violet who does what he's told, quite the opposite.

I don't think this is the beginning of a retreat from public life, this tour showed they really want to use their position to further causes important to them and they take their commonwealth roles very seriously.

Read the article - my, the lady who wrote this must be really a fan of Piers Morgan without much knowledge. Harry and Meghan did not decide on which cars to use in SA and they are not payed for by the public. They don't live the life of "fabulously wealthy" people, they are rich enough and mind you, I'd rent a cottage like theirs from my grandmother, too, if there was one for taking. But that's not living "fabulously wealthy" IMHO. The press did not keep pis of baby Archie back and they didn't write about his godparents - they would have printed pap pics of the baby and written about the godperents if they had known. So this whole article is another lie about them and trying to diminish Harry's feelings about the terrible treatment of his wife by the media is not helping anybody at all.



Btw - look through the backlist o the author and you'll see what I mean...



And here I thought the Spectator was a reliable paper!

Harry is joining other claimants, so there are other innocent people who’ve been affected too. Funny how all those ‘royal insiders’ & reporters who are asking ‘why now’, thought they claimed to know everything, even what the Queen is thinking. But didn’t know there are ongoing cases for unethical press behaviour, or is it that certain press are hiding info from the public?

Hopefully in the end, there’ll be much better Press Standards.

The whinging press were also not too bothered when the print media were breaching H and M's privacy by employing 3rd parties to overfly their house in the Cotswolds in breach of Article 8 .You would think that it never happened ,or that they hadn't already won a case last week for false reporting against The Sun .

So according to the Guardian and the Byline article, this new lawsuit is not only about the 2005 hack, but Diana as well.

Quote:
Byline reports the duke’s claim could see his lawyers seek to establish whether the newspapers intercepted voicemails of his late mother, Diana, Princess of Wales. The website claims it will also explore whether, even after Diana’s death in August 1997, private investigators were hired to illegally target her friends and family.

I was afraid this would happen. This is going to be very ugly and who knows what Thomas Markle will do next.

Meghan and Harry have every right to sue but I sincerely hope the whole thing doesn't blow up all over them.

But as I said before, it seems they are fed up in general but were advised that this was the best chance to win a lawsuit. However, the implication will be that the whole Markle debacle (that in itself was painful enough) will take center stage again.

And maybe it will show the public that Meghan does not care at all when it comes to her paternal family and the media. But that she cares when the media makes steps she can sue against. Maybe the media will learn from that and simply stop harassing her.

You're exactly right, this isn't a legal defense.

But I suspect the Mail plans to "strike back" by constantly airing all the dirty laundry about Meghan's relationship with her father. The "ungrateful daughter" narrative. Just more public harassment.

Bullies fight back the only way they know how. Its not a good reflection on the MoS at all in my eyes.
