The Duchess of Sussex is bringing a bid to have her privacy action against the Mail On Sunday over the publication of a letter to her estranged father decided without a trial.

Meghan, 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 76-year-old Thomas Markle in August 2018.

At a hearing on Thursday, the duchess’s lawyers will ask a High Court judge to rule in her favour and strike out the publisher’s defence to her claim.

Mr Justice Warby will also hear an application for the trial, which is due to be heard over 10 days in January, to be postponed.
