Duchess sues British tabloid over personal letter

LONDON — British royal Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, has sued a tabloid newspaper that she claims illegally published a personal letter she wrote.

A spokeswoman for the law firm handling the case told Britain's Press Association the lawsuit alleges the Mail on Sunday's "intrusive" publication of the letter was copyright infringement, misuse of private information and a violation of data protection law.

Meghan was known as the American actress Meghan Markle before she married Prince Harry in May 2018. Harry accused the Mail on Sunday of editing out parts of the letter in "an intentionally destructive manner" to "manipulate" readers and provide an inaccurate characterization of his wife.

He said in a statement posted on the couple's website it was the last straw in a "ruthless campaign" by the broader tabloid press to make Meghan look bad.

U.K. marks house where Bob Marley, Wailers lived

LONDON — The musician and songwriter Bob Marley has been honored with an English Heritage blue plaque at the west London address where he and his band the Wailers lived in 1977.

The Jamaican-born reggae star joins John Lennon, Freddie Mercury, Mozart and other musicians and composers who have been honored with a rare blue plaque.

The plaque was unveiled Tuesday at 42 Oakley St. in the Chelsea neighborhood. Anecdotal reports from witnesses indicate the house was the band's headquarters and Marley's primary address.

It was unveiled by Rastafarian writer Benjamin Zephaniah and broadcaster David Olusoga, who called Marley "a cultural icon who blazed a trail for other black artists."

The band was recording its renowned "Exodus" album at the time.

Marley died in 1981 at the height of his fame.
