British Queen celebrates

Prince Harry has decided to drop his libel lawsuit against the Daily Mail's publisher, Associated Newspapers Ltd., after a pretrial ruling weakened his case. Lawyers representing the

Duke of Sussex informed the High Court in London of the decision, which comes following a judge's recent ruling ordering Harry to pay the publisher over $60,000 in legal fees.

The lawsuit concerned a Mail on Sunday article alleging that Harry concealed efforts to retain publicly funded protection in the U.K. after stepping back from his royal duties. The publisher argued the article expressed an honest opinion and did not harm Harry's reputation. While no reason was given for dropping the case, it leaves Harry responsible for the publisher's reported legal fees of $316,000.
