The Duchess of Sussex wants to postpone the trial of her High Court privacy claim against the Mail on Sunday over the publication of a letter to her estranged father.
Meghan is suing the Sunday newspaper’s publisher Associated Newspapers Ltd over articles which reproduced parts of a handwritten letter to Thomas Markle.
It was revealed today that the duchess is hoping to delay the ten-day trial which is currently set for January next year, but is also seeking an immediate victory in the case.
Mr Justice Warby will judge her applications at a hearing tomorrow, which has taken the place of an expected case management conference in the case.
