Megan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex has been granted a postponement of the trial against a British newspaper. The paper had published excerpts from a private letter that she had written to her father. She put an invasion of privacy lawsuit against them.
Judge Mark Warby, the presiding judge in London, granted a delay of around nine months. The scheduled start date was January 11 and the exact date will be set later in the year, close to Fall 2021. There was a private hearing and the judge said that the reason for the delay must remain confidential.
Thirty nine year old Markle is suing Associated Newspapers. In February 2019 they published five articles in the Sunday Mail and on the MailOnline website with handwritten portions of a letter written by her to her estranged father Thomas Markle. The letter was written after she married Britain’s Prince Harry. The newspaper is also contesting the claim.
