    Meghan Markle has agreed to pay £67,000 in legal costs after losing the first round of her battle against the Mail on Sunday's publisher.

    The duchess is suing Associated Newspapers Limited (ANL), publisher of the newspaper and MailOnline, over an article published in February 2019 which reproduced parts of a handwritten letter she sent to her father.

    But in May, the High Court's*Mr Justice Warby*struck out parts of the Meghan's claim, including allegations of 'deliberately stirring up' issues between her and her father.

    A written submission from July 22 has since shown that the duchess has agreed to pay in full the publisher’s costs for the strike-out hearing of £67,888.

    The hefty bill was revealed as the court heard Meghan believes naming the five female friends who briefed People magazine about her and a letter sent to her father Thomas would be an 'unacceptable price to pay' for pursuing a claim against Associated Newspapers.

    The*Duchess of Sussex*has applied for an order to keep secret the identities of the women, all 'young mothers', at a hearing at the Royal Courts of Justice in*London.

    Today a skeleton argument presented to the court by Meghan's legal team said: 'To disclose their identities to the public at this stage is an unacceptable price to pay for the right to pursue her claim for invasion of privacy'.

    But in an embarrassing moment during the application Meghan's QC Justin Rushbrooke accidentally said the surname of one of the five friends the Duchess of Sussex is seeking to keep anonymous.

    Judge Mr Justice Warby, who is expected to rule on the matter in August, immediately directed that the individual's name was not to be reported.

    The five women were named as the sources of a People Magazine article in 2019 in legal papers submitted by Meghan to the court earlier this month, although their identities were not made public.

    Good point about both wearing emerald tiaras. I still want to know what the thing looked like

    plus, really, white dresses and veils are supposed to symbolise virginity, in which case cathy, eugenie, beatrice and pretty much every royal bride since diana shouldn't have worn one either.
    And maybe not even Diana for that matter.

    I think she was examined to make sure that she was.

    It was rumoured that she wanted to wear the Russian-provinence Vladimir Kokoshnik tiara.
    The emeralds are interchangable with pearls. But traditionally you don't wear green to weddings.

    I think that the one she wore was perfect, this one is just too much.

    Even if it wasn’t what she wanted, the tiara she wore looked great on her. I agree the other one would have been overwhelming.

    Eugenie wore the tiara she wanted ,but the queen had already promised it to her granddaughter.It was really beautiful and there was a big emerald on it.I think the tiara markle finally wore fitted her nicely,in fact tiara and flowers were the best.

    That's based on a "rumor", I was asking about the actual one which hasn't been disclosed and I wish it would be. As for your snide comment, keep scrolling. Your response is not necessary.

    Yep!


    I thought the styles were similar, both kind of 1930sish which is much more flattering (imho) than some of these big ugly heavy things.

    Pretty much. Wearing a white gown to marry became a symbol of wealth, not purity. It was all about showing you had enough money to buy a dress that should/could only be worn once.

    Penny's finally dropped for Prince Harry, can he and Meghan go on, asks CHRISTOPHER WILSON

    IT'S been the grimmest week of their lives together - and things only look like they're getting worse. But however baffled and hurt we may feel by Harry and Meghan Markle's defection to America, the couple still need our sympathy.

    Meghan Markle and Harry 'felt sidelined' by royals says expert



    The long-awaited book they pinned their hopes on, the one which would explain their actions, thoughts and feelings over the past couple of years, has been met with ridicule and, in some places, outright anger. Their dream charitable foundation, Sussex Royal, went into liquidation with the resignation of all its directors. Meghan's lawsuit against a newspaper seems to be floundering. She lost the first round in the proceedings, and has been forced to pay £67,000 in legal fees.

    Her attempt to preserve the anonymity of five friends secretly passing on selective information about her new life looks close to failure, too.
    The couple's lifestyle continues to be ruinously expensive, with the whopping annual bill for personal protection coming out of Harry's pocket.
    And Meghan's increased wealth since her marriage will now be subject to the scrutiny of the Internal Revenue Service. She'll now be asked to pay a small fortune in taxes.
    If Harry starts to earn money in the US from lectures and personal appearances, as is his plan, he'll have to pay US taxes.
    Then again their earnings in kind - the loan of their Malibu house, the free flights on private jets - will also become subject to the draconian policies of the IRS.



    Prince Harry and Meghan could find independent life financially unsustainable (Image: GETTY•TWITTER)As each day of their self-imposed exile goes by, they must wonder again and again whether they made the right decision in quitting Britain last November.
    Back here, Harry found he's lost the "power of royal" after lecturing the travel industry on how to adapt to the future.
    He set himself up as an "ethical" travel expert with his new organisation Travalyst.
    In his first video since the controversial Finding Freedom was published, on Wednesday, he made the opening speech in a virtual global summit on travel, urging the industry to "build back better" once the coronavirus pandemic has passed.
    But former transport minister Norman Baker gave Harry a scathing put-down, saying: "I'm afraid his credibility on the subject is lacking over his own jet-setting, which undermines his case.



    Prince Harry has lost the 'power of royal' (Image: Twitter)The message is fine, but the messenger is wrong - it's like a carnivore advocating vegetarianism."
    One online critic accused the couple of being "entitled and seemingly tone-deaf to the world we live in today".
    A photo a few days ago of the couple clambering aboard a gas-guzzling six-litre Cadillac SUV drew a howl of disapproval from a wider circle of online royal fans.
    Can Harry and Meghan go on like this? We have to understand that Meghan found herself out of her depth when she joined the royal circle and struggled to come to terms with the protocols which surround that family, hence her longing to return to more familiar territory.
    But now, in his turn, Harry will find it difficult to stay afloat in a Tinseltown culture so alien to his own.



    Meghan and Prince Harry are reportedly staying at Tyler Perry's house in Beverly Hills (Image: Google)Crucially for Meghan, no studio seems to have stepped forward with the offer of a leading lady role, her hope and dream. If they had, we'd have heard about it. It would seem the all-powerful studio bosses look on the couple as red-carpet fodder, not as a bankable item.
    In Britain, they were a powerful force. But when Harry walked away from royal duties he broke the magic thread which binds royalty to the people.
    It's taken a long time for the penny to drop, but Harry has discovered he is no king of the high seas but a castaway stranded on a desert island.
    Money worries, his dented global reputation, loss of friends, abandonment of all the things, places and people he holds dear - these are a high price to pay for a single mistake.
    What this couple need more than anything is our sympathy and understanding.
