3. Meghan Markle has lost round one of her tabloid lawsuit. But it’s not over yet.

A London court has thrown out part of the privacy claim brought by the Duchess of Sussex in her legal action against a tabloid newspaper for breaching her privacy.

In case you missed it, Meghan is suing publisher Associated Newspapers over articles its Mail on Sunday newspaper printed in February last year that included parts of a letter she had sent to her estranged father, Thomas Markle.

At a hearing last week, the paper's lawyer argued that allegations it had acted dishonestly and had stoked the family rift should be removed from the case, along with references to other articles about the royal that Meghan says were false.

"I agree that all three categories of allegation should be struck out of the Particulars of Claim," High Court judge Mark Warby said in his ruling on Friday.

Meghan's lawyers say the publication of her letter by the paper was a misuse of private information and breached her copyright. They are seeking aggravated damages.

As part of the claim, they had accused the Mail and other tabloids of harassing, humiliating and manipulating Thomas Markle, and contributing towards a fallout between him and his daughter.

The two have not spoken since her wedding to Prince Harry back in May 2018.

The paper rejected the allegation it had acted dishonestly or maliciously by publishing extracts of the letter she sent her father in August 2018 and said it was "remarkable" the claim about the treatment of Markle had been made without the duchess having contacted him to see if he agreed.

"Today's ruling makes very clear that the core elements of this case do not change and will continue to move forward," said a spokesman for Schillings, Meghan's law firm.

"The Duchess' rights were violated; the legal boundaries around privacy were crossed. As part of this process, the extremes to which The Mail on Sunday used distortive, manipulative, and dishonest tactics to target The Duchess of Sussex have been put on full display."

Meghan and Harry are now living in Los Angeles, California with baby, Archie after stepping down from their royal roles at the end of March.

The case will still go to trial. However, no date has been set just yet.
