Royals LIVE: ‘Ultimate irony’ as Meghan’s victory could lead to huge changes in UK law | Royal


Ministers plan to change the law to protect free speech after the Court of Appeals ruled in Meghan’s favor earlier this week. Speaking of the decision, a cabinet minister argued that “the balance between privacy and freedom of expression is clearly wrong.”

They told the Daily Mail: “The judges created a privacy law that Parliament never voted on.
“Members of Parliament never agreed to a privacy law because they knew it would be used by the rich and famous to cover up their misdeeds.

“The balance between privacy and freedom of expression is clearly wrong. If that’s what the law says, then it has to change.

“We have the impression that we had a law invented by the judge. It is based on laws passed by Parliament, but that is not what Parliament ever intended and we need to fix it. “

Reacting to the news on Twitter, royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams called it “the ultimate irony.”

He wrote: ‘It would be the ultimate irony if Meghan’s win over AN led to this.

“Political sources cited express their concern at the verdict.

“There is a review of the human rights law and the upcoming online mischief bill that may incorporate changes!” “
