Prince Harry accepts apology and 'substantial damages' over 'baseless' claims in Mail article

The Duke of Sussex has accepted an apology and "substantial damages" from The Mail On Sunday and MailOnline's publisher over claims he snubbed the Royal Marines after stepping down as a senior royal.

Jenny Afia, representing Prince Harry, said: "The baseless, false and defamatory stories published in the Mail on Sunday and on the website MailOnline constituted not only a personal attack upon the Duke's character but also wrongly brought into question his service to this country."
