Prince Harry and Meghan Markle could end up with a mountain of very “expensive” legal costs, royal commentators have warned. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s “never-ending stream of lawsuits” has sparked concern even as Harry celebrates a recent win against the Mail on Sunday. HeirPod host Omid Scobie and ABC News foreign correspondent Maggie Rulli discussed how the couple may proceed from now on.
Ms Rulli told listeners: “Obviously this is a huge win for Harry but does this set a precedent for the future?
“Harry and Meghan have several lawsuits now that are ongoing.
“I know we’re going to be hearing more on Meghan’s lawsuit next week.
“So I’m curious if this is a trend we’re going to see.”

She continued: “Is this a new precedent being set in British courts of law?
“It’s obviously too early to tell, but it’s definitely something to pay attention to.”
Mr Scobie added: “We’ve certainly seen the couple show no fear when it comes to taking on misinformation or false reporting.
“They really have nothing holding them back at this point.”
The host told the podcast: “He was actually awarded £2,500 in costs.
“But that just shows how much these cases actually cost to get off the ground.
“This even ran for a relatively short period of time.
“It’s going to be about finding that balance.
“They’re at least showing the world that they’re taking this seriously, and doing everything they can to protect their own names.”
