Meghan Markle will be paid 1 pound ($1.36) by a British tabloid after a judge ruled that the newspaper breached her privacy when it published excerpts of a letter she wrote to her father. 

Mail on Sunday publisher Associated Newspapers Ltd. was also ordered by a London judge to pay the Duchess of Sussex a confidential sum for copyright infringement, a court order said. The “nominal damages” of one pound were for misuse of private information, according to documents filed at a London court in December.
