Meghan Markle won her legal case against Associated Newspapers. She received a printed public apology from the Mail on Sunday as required by the ruling.

Weeks later, reports learned that she will receive about $1.5 (£1) in damages for invasion of privacy. This has led some to poke fun at the Duchess of Sussex, Ryanair, for instance.

The Dublin-based airline made a "cheeky swipe" at the former working royal on social media, according to Express UK. It urged her to save her winnings for their "next seat sale," and the post quickly amassed different reactions from netizens.

Ryanair shared the post on Twitter, and it obtained thousands of likes. It, also, received tons of responses, with many netizens applauding the airline for its "witty" tweet.

However, not everyone found it entertaining as some individuals defended Meghan Markle on the same platform. One even commented that Ryanair is "jumping on the trolls bandwagon without checking the facts."

As explained, the Duchess of Sussex will receive a "confidential" sum from the Mail on Sunday for copyright infringement, as well. It is, reportedly, a "substantial" amount on top of the approximately $2 million for legal costs that they will cover on behalf of the former actress.

Some, also, pointed out that the nearly $1.5 (£1) is just in the "nominal damages" for invasion of privacy.

People referred to the winning as a "symbolic" award and emphasized that this is "not all" of what Meghan Markle will receive from the Mail on Sunday. But, whatever the sum may be, the former working royal's win was, reportedly, "less about a financial figure and more about what her victory represented."

When the court upheld the ruling on December 2, Markle released an official statement about her win from the case. She said that it is not only her victory, "but for anyone who has ever felt scared to stand up for what's right."

The Duchess of Sussex continued that while the event is a "precedent setting," what matters is that they are now "collectively brave enough to reshape a tabloid industry that conditions people to be cruel, and profits from the lies and pain that they create."

The debacle seemingly began when the Mail on Sunday published an article about Meghan Markle in February 2019. It included parts of her letter to her father, who missed her wedding to Prince Harry in 2018.

Later in October, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex released an official statement, confirming their move to take legal actions against Associated Newspapers, the publisher of the Mail on Sunday, "for the intrusive and unlawful publication of one of her private letters."

Particulars of claims were filed days later, according to the Independent. The defendant filed its defense in January of 2020, days after the Sussex Royals announced their exit from the British Monarchy.
