Meghan Markle y el príncipe Harry iniciaron una demanda por difamación contra un diario británico

Los duques de Sussex están atacando la prensa en contra de noticias falsas sobre su vida privada

Meghan Markle está demandando a un periódico británico, alegando que publicó ilegalmente una carta privada a su padre, ya que su esposo, el príncipe Harry, lanzó un ataque extraordinario y emocional contra los tabloides del Reino Unido.

Harry acusó al Mail on Sunday de editar selectivamente la carta para disfrazar las "mentiras" que el periódico había dicho sobre la duquesa de Susex, un reclamo que el periódico sensacionalista niega específicamente.

In Tembisa, Johannesburg, today The Duke and Duchess visited to meet young entrepreneurs at the YES hub – a hive for creativity and social enterprise. Their visit was an amazing tour of the ingenuity and opportunity – seeing businesses that varied from food to essential sanitary products for local women. During their visit, they were able to sample food from ‘Chef Mish’ – a local masterchef winner – which he makes at the site as part of his catering business and cafe. They then joined YES community members to take part in training and tests that will help them gain skills and find work. On the third stop today, entrepreneur Moss showed The Duke and Duchess the organic produce he's growing in the township with aquaponics – supplying local restaurants. And finally, The Duke and Duchess met the women behind the amazing Blossom Care Solutions – who are making 80,000 sanitary pads every month for women in their community. They are 100% compostable, and provide an essential low-cost product for women and girls. The Duchess has long campaigned on this issue and wrote in Time magazine in 2017, saying: “In communities all over the globe, young girls’ potential is being squandered because we are too shy to talk about the most natural thing in the world. To that I say: we need to push the conversation, mobilize policy making surrounding menstrual health initiatives, support organizations who foster girls’ education from the ground up, and within our own homes, we need to rise above our puritanical bashfulness when it comes to talking about menstruation.” • See our previous post to see The Dukes speech #RoyalVisitSouthAfrica Photo ©️ PA images

"Desafortunadamente, mi esposa se ha convertido en una de las últimas víctimas de una prensa sensacionalista británica que realiza campañas contra personas sin pensar en las consecuencias: una campaña despiadada que se ha intensificado durante el año pasado, durante todo el embarazo y mientras criaba a nuestro hijo recién nacido", escribió Harry en un comunicado en línea

Harry escribió la declaración él mismo, y fue publicada sin editar, dijo una fuente real. La fuente y el padre de Harry, el Príncipe de Gales, fueron informados de los procedimientos, dijo la fuente a CNN.

More images from Heritage Day in Bo Kaap. As part of their visit, Their Royal Highnesses visited the Auwal Mosque – the first and oldest Mosque in South Africa. Standing as a symbol of the freedom of former slaves to worship, the Mosque hosts events with Muslim, Christian and Jewish young leaders, and encourages friendship and understanding between South Africa's varied communities. The Duke and Duchess also got to view the first known manuscript of the Qu’ran in Africa, drafted by Tuan Guru from memory, whilst he was imprisoned on Robben Island. ••• Heritage Day celebrated the great diversity of cultures, beliefs and traditions that make up the rainbow nation. Bo Kaap streets filled with colour and music while Their Royal Highnesses were welcomed to one of the most vibrant neighbourhoods in Cape Town. The area has seen inter-community tension rise over the last few years, yet days like today show how faith, traditions, food and music bring people together, and celebrate the things that unite each and every one of us. #RoyalVisitSouthAfrica • Photo ©️ Shutterstock / PA images

La fuente real agregó que la demanda se relaciona con una historia publicada por el Mail on Sunday de febrero, que se basó en una carta escrita a mano enviada supuestamente por Meghan a su padre separado, Thomas Markle, poco después de que el duque y la duquesa se casaran el año pasado.

Cuando el Mail on Sunday imprimió la carta personal de la duquesa, fue redactada sustancialmente, dijo la fuente real.


El bufete de abogados Schillings, que representa a la duquesa, dijo que se iniciaron procedimientos legales contra el Mail on Sunday y su empresa matriz, Associated Newspapers, por el mal uso de la información privada, la infracción de los derechos de autor y el incumplimiento de la Ley de Protección de Datos del Reino Unido de 2018.
