Prince Harry withdraws libel case against Mail on Sunday and faces legal bill of £750k | Royal | News

Harry’s lawyers claimed the story “purported to reveal, in sensational terms” that information from court documents “contradicted public statements he had previously made about his willingness to pay for police protection for himself and his family whilst in the UK”.

They added that the article was “fundamentally inaccurate” and the newspaper libeled the Duke when it suggested he lied in his initial public statements about his case challenging the government.

In a ruling last month, the duke lost a bid to have ANL’s “honest opinion” thrown out by a judge and was ordered to pay £48,447 towards the publisher’s lawyers’ bills.

The Mail on Sunday and Mail Online published an article in February 2022 headlined: “How Prince Harry tried to keep his legal fight with the government over police bodyguards a secret … then — just minutes after the story broke — his PR machine tried to put a positive spin on the dispute.”

The article said Harry tried to hide his efforts to retain publicly funded protection in the UK after giving up his status as a working member of the Royal Family in 2020.

The government, meanwhile, has defended its decision to withdraw full protection for Harry because he stepped down from his role as a senior working member of the Firm. It said he was treated fairly and provided with security occasionally when he visits.
