Meghan Markle's new trial date for High Court privacy case confirmed

The Duchess of Sussex's legal team has lodged applications to have her privacy claim against the Mail on Sunday decided without trial

The trial date provisionally set for 11 January 2021 has now been vacated and a new date is set to be confirmed for autumn 2021 after Meghan's legal team gave a"confidential ground" as to why a postponement was needed. 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.

WATCH: Harry and Meghan: From the UK to the West CoastMeghan, 39, is suing Associated Newspapers (ANL), publisher of the Mail On Sunday and MailOnline, over articles from February 2019, which featured parts of a"private and confidential" letter from the Duchess to her estranged father, Thomas Markle, in August 2018.

A judge ruled in September that the Mail On Sunday can rely on a recent royal biography Finding Freedom in its defence to Meghan's privacy claim.But the Duchess lost the bid to appeal such an inclusion during the hearing on Thursday. MORE: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's 'lively' son Archie being raised in their 'forever home'

Finding Freedom was published in AugustAt the September hearing, lawyers for the Duchess denied she"collaborated" with authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand for their royal biography Finding Freedom, and argued that references in the book, published in August, were simply"extracts from the letter lifted from the defendant's own articles".

A costs and case management hearing, before Judge Francesca Kaye, will also take place on Thursday afternoon. Read more: HELLO! »
