Prince Harry Wins First Legal Battle in Libel Case Against Associated Newspapers

Prince Harry has snagged an early victory in his libel lawsuit against the UK’s Associated Newspapers. On July 8, UK High Court Judge Matthew Nicklin ruled that parts of an article about Harry published by the Mail on Sunday — one of the Associated Newspapers’ publications — were deemed “defamatory,” CNN reported, marking a first phase win in the Duke of Sussex’s libel case.

On Feb. 23, a spokesperson for Harry confirmed to People that the duke took action against the Associated Newspapers and filed a High Court libel complaint against the Daily Mail publisher. According to documents filed by Harry’s lawyers at the High Court in London — obtained by Harper’s Bazaar — the complaint pertains to a Feb. 20 article published by the Daily Mail about the duke’s fight for police protection in the UK.
