Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex received an apology and retraction from Mail on Sunday. The former royal sued the outlet over posting a false article about him.
“An article on 25 October 2020 reported that Prince Harry had been accused by a top general of turning his back on the Royal Marines since withdrawing from his military roles in March and that, in an apparent snub to the Armed Forces, he had failed to reply to a letter from Lord Dannatt, a former Chief of the General Staff,” the statement reads.
“We now understand that Harry has been in contact in a private capacity with individuals in the military including in the Royal Marines to offer informal support since March and that whilst he did not initially receive the letter from Lord Dannatt referred to in the article due to administrative issues he has since replied on becoming aware of it. We apologize to Prince Harry and have made a donation to the Invictus Games Foundation.”
Earlier this month, Prince Harry sued Associated Newspapers Limited (ANL) and the outlet over a story about his relationship with the Royal Marines after he stepped down from royal duties earlier in the year.
