Britain's Prince Harry has won an apology and substantial damages from the publishers of
the Mail of Sunday newspaper on Monday (Feb 1) after he sued the tabloid for libel over
claims he had turned his back on the Royal Marines.

Harry launched the legal action after an article in the paper in October said he had lost touch
with the Marines, a commando force of the British navy with whom he had a formal
relationship until he stepped back from royal duties last March.

His lawyer Jenny Afia told London's High Court the paper had now settled with the prince
over the "baseless, false and defamatory" story.

She added that the articles “constituted not only a personal attack upon the Duke’s character
but also wrongly brought into question his service to this country".

Afia said Harry was “proud to have served in the British armed forces for 10 years in Her
Majesty’s name” and “has maintained active links with those forces ever since and will
continue to do so in the future".

After the brief remote hearing, a spokesman for Harry said his “commitment to the military
community is unquestionable”.

The Mail on Sunday printed an apology in December but it wasn't enough to stop the lawsuit.

Harry will donate the damages to the Invictus Games Foundation, a charity for wounded or
sick servicemen and women that he founded, she added. The amount of the damages was
not disclosed.

Separately, Harry's wife Meghan is also suing Associated Newspapers for invasion of privacy
and copyright infringement over articles that published portions of a letter she wrote to her
father, Thomas Markle, after her marriage to Harry in 2018.
