If it's true, didn't Mirror/Express also run the same story? Why MoS? (I don't read DM so I don't know who run the story first).

And didn't Nikkah's article on The Times only get complaint instead of lawsuit?
What's so special about MoS? Please don't say its (online) reader comment section.

I do want to point out that it's still not confirmed that the lawsuit is about this story, but even the fact their legal team was threatening with legal actions over it is laughable enough on its own. Well, that, or just sad.

Who knows with them?
It might just be a fact that out of the tabloid press they hate MoS the most, it might be that they want to involve the publisher in another lenghty, expensive and completely unnecessary trial.

The 6th Lawsuit in a year. Well as I said it before the Lawyers are thrilled, it rains money on them. Give them the Papers a warning and move on.

I'm not quite sure whether Mirror/Express picked up the story from the Daily Mail or not. If so, maybe Harry is suing the "main source". To me, The Express is way more exaggerated in terms of reporting and making "clickbait" headlines. The Mirror is known to make a story out of nothing and snide comments (mostly out of right-leaning public figures). I especially dislike Kevin Maguire, associate editor of Daily Mirror. Interesting enough, both the comment section in the Express and Mirror are organised using the same system. Perhaps, the comments were more moderated and control compare to the Daily Mail.

You're right about how The Time only receiving complaint rather than lawsuit. I think the main reason of the difference in treatment is that The Times is a respected paper with online subscription, while The Mail is a tabloid (just like The Sun, Mirror, Express). Suing The Times would be very costly and would not look good, given what Extinction Rebellion done to them (as well as other News Corp paper) on the same weekend. This would potentially view as an attack on freedom of press (given that The Times is not a tabloid). The subscripted readers would not be happy and probably rise up & supported The Times if Harry actually end up suing them.

It was various British media outlets that reported this news over the weekend. Harry had nothing to do with it. His spokesman refused to comment. And documents were lodged with the court in late November.

All the damaging, vicious lies that were printed about Meghan, particularly, and now Harry, that they couldn't react to as working royals, can now be addressed. It's Harry and Meghan's money so good for them.

Someone should ask them why they won't sue Omid.

Perhaps that is a question the Duchess will be asked at the trial.

Harry and Meghan settled their lawsuit over the images of Meghan walking with Archie in the park in Canada.

As part of the settlement Splash has agreed to not photograph Archie.

Seeing as the lawsuit was against the British arm, the agreement is only relevant to Splash UK (per a few other articles) - and that has gone into administration. so it does not includes the US arm of the company.
So essentially this is an empty promise.

From what I can tell, she requested the settlement?
So an empty promise and keep in mind, she's not getting any settlement money from this, which imo is probably why her side offered the settlement.


"“This settlement is a clear signal that unlawful, invasive, and intrusive paparazzi behaviour will not be tolerated, and that the couple takes these matters seriously – just as any family would."

But this wasn't unlawful or invasive, she was on a public trail! that's the point.
Anyway, this settlement is just a sign that the UK branch have more important things to worry about than dealing with a celebrity who called the paps and than sue to save face.

ETA: their lawsuit against Splash US for the same pictures is still ongoing.

The Daily Mail issued an apology to the Sussexes over the article in which they claimed Harry had turned his back on the armed forces.

interesting "apology", I don't think the DM should have apologized for this because I don't think they are wrong on this.
The apology says he has been in contact with "individuals" "in a private capacity" offering "informal support"... okay, but that isn't that the exact opposite of what the honorary colonel should do? which is provide Public support? (you know like when he snubbed a royal marine memorial for the Lion King premier?- I guess that was his private way of supporting them..)

I was never really into the "take away his military titles" bandwagon, but I think I do now.
If Harry wants to support the military in a personal non formal capacity than I say let him, but than take away the honorary titles, this way he can truly provide it the same way we all do. Solved.

The Fail would never concede anything to Harry unless they felt they absolutely had to, and the fact that they have issued what is for them a quite fulsome apology and a donation to Invictus shows that the newspaper knew it was in the wrong.

According to Chris Ship, Harry will continue the lawsuit despite The Mail's apology. The Court hearing might happen in the New Year.

Replying to @chrisshipitv
Despite the Mail’s correction, the legal action Prince Harry has brought against the newspaper over this story is continuing. There is likely to be a court hearing in the New Year. Watch this space...

Well, the legal action as it stands is continuing because the apology has only just been made - it will "continue" (and doesn't automatically stop) until the plaintiff has had a chance to discuss the apology with his legal advisors to decide whether or not to continue with the action or withdraw it.

I just want to add that this situation would be different from the complaint towards The Times, as members of this forum have mentioned earlier.

Since there have been quite a few lawsuits filed against the Mail from celebrities or public figures, I think suing The Mail on Sunday (tabloid) would not be as dramatic or even ludicrous as suing The Times (respected newspaper)

According to Press Gazette, both Daily Mail and Mail on Sunday have the highest average National circulation on November 2020 in the UK. I guess suing the second most circulated paper is far more appealing. The Telegraph, The Times and The Sun have kept their circulation figures private, hence not listed.
