    FILE - In this June 29, 2019 file photo, Britain's Prince Harry, left, and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, walk off the field before a baseball game in London.

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex filed suit against the Daily Mail's parent company after the tabloid published a private letter written by Meghan Markle earlier this year, NBC News reported.

    Harry also penned a scathing statement against the British tabloids for a "ruthless campaign" against his wife.

    "I’ve seen what happens when someone I love is commoditized to the point that they are no longer treated or seen as a real person," he said. "I lost my mother and now I watch my wife falling victim to the same powerful forces."

    The royal couple filed a claim against Associated Papers for the misuse of private information, infringement of copyright and breach of the U.K.'s Data Protection Act 2018, according to the law firm representing the couple.

    A Mail on Sunday spokesman said the tabloid stands by the story it published and will be defending this case vigorously.
