Prince Harry has accepted an apology and “substantial damages” from the publishers of The Mail On Sunday and MailOnline. The Duke of Sussex sued Associated Newspapers for libel over "baseless, false and defamatory" allegations that he snubbed the Royal Marines after stepping down as a senior royal. The duke’s lawyers said the newspaper group has accepted the allegations were false. They also said Prince Harry had suffered “huge damage to his reputation” and was “personally affronted” by suggestions he was not taking his role seriously. Harry is donating the damages to the Invictus Games Foundation "so he could feel something good had come out of the situation".
