LONDON (Reuters) – Meghan, the wife of Britain’s Prince Harry, won her bid to have a privacy action against a tabloid newspaper postponed by about nine months until next Autumn after a judge heard a confidential reason from her lawyers for seeking a delay.
Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, is suing Associated Newspapers over articles in the Mail on Sunday that included parts of a handwritten letter she had sent to her estranged father, Thomas Markle, in August 2018.
A trial was due to have started in London in January.
Judge Mark Warby said on Thursday he had granted the delay after Meghan’s team gave “a confidential ground” for doing so.
