Meghan loses latest court battle with UK tabloid newspaper

Tue, 29th Sep 2020 14:46

LONDON, Sept 29 (Reuters) - Meghan, Britain's Duchess of
Sussex, has lost the latest skirmish in her privacy lawsuit
against a tabloid newspaper, after London's High Court ruled on
Tuesday the paper could amend its case ahead of a trial next
year.

Meghan, wife of Queen Elizabeth's grandson Prince Harry, is
suing publisher Associated Newspapers over articles the Mail on
Sunday printed last year that included parts of a handwritten
letter she sent to her estranged father, Thomas Markle, in
August 2018.

Last week, the paper applied for permission to amend its
case, arguing that the couple had cooperated with a biography
about them which was published in August, and that showed Meghan
had intended some private details to become public, including
the contents of the letter.

The judge, Francesca Kaye, said that while she made no view
on the strength of the Mail’s case, the amendments could not be
said to be “unarguable or utterly fanciful”.
