Meghan Markle has won her bid to protect the identities of her friends amid her ongoing legal battle.
On Wednesday, Aug. 5, Mr. Justice Warby ruled in favor of the Duchess of Sussex, who has been fighting to block the public naming of five women who anonymously participated in a 2019 interview with People magazine. “The Duchess felt it was necessary to take this step to try and protect her friends—as any of us would—and we’re glad this was clear,” Meghan’s team said following the verdict. “We are happy that the Judge has agreed to protect these five individuals.”
Per The Telegraph, Justice Warby said in his ruling, “I have concluded that for the time being at least the Court should grant the claimant the orders she seeks, the effect of which will be to confer protection on the sources’ identities. That is confidential information, the protection of which at this stage is necessary in the interests of the administration of justice. This is an interim decision.”
This ruling comes one month after Meghan, who is in the middle of a lawsuit against The Mail on Sunday and its parent company, Associated Newspapers, filed an application to stop Associated Newspapers from publicly identifying the names of those five friends.
