  • Meghan Markle Is Asking for a Delay in This Legal Battle

Markle (39) is suing Associated Newspapers Ltd (ANL), publisher of the Mail On Sunday and MailOnline, over an article which reproduced parts of the handwritten letter sent to her estranged fatther 76-year-old Thomas Markle in August 2018.

The full High Court trial - for which Meghan was expected to return to the United Kingdom to attend in person - was scheduled to begin on January 11, 2021.

The trial will now take place next Autumn.

But the Duchess' legal team filed an application to delay the trial following recent developments in the case.

As well as an adjournment, Meghan is arguing her case is suitable for a summary judgment, and is urging the judge to strike out the Mail on Sunday's defence.

The trial has been pushed back.

Associated Newspapers is contesting the claim at the High Court in London.

Meghan Markle Is Asking for a Delay in This Legal Battle

The request comes after the newspaper group were granted permission to argue Meghan and Harry assisted authors who recently published a book documenting their exit from the royal firm.

A British judge on Thursday granted a request by the Duchess of Sussex to postpone the trial of her invasion of privacy lawsuit against the publisher of a British newspaper that published portions of a private letter she wrote to her father.

Meghan's lawyers say the publication of the letter to her father was a misuse of private information and breached her copyright.

Meghan's application to have her privacy case heard on a "summary basis" will be heard at a later date.

However, the Duchess lost a bid to stop a royal biography about her and husband Prince Harry being used by the Mail On Sunday as part of its defence.

Today's pre-trial hearing is considering whether to give the Duchess of Sussex permission to appeal the earlier ruling about the Finding Freedom.
