The duchess is suing the company over five articles, two in the Mail on Sunday and three on MailOnline, which reproduced parts of a ‘private and confidential’ handwritten letter she sent to Thomas Markle, 75, in August 2018.
During the preliminary hearing last week, the judge was told the letter had been published by Associated Newspapers to satisfy the ‘curiosity’ of readers, which it had ‘deliberately generated’.
But in a ruling on Friday, Mr Justice Warby struck out those parts of Meghan’s claim against the publisher, including that it acted ‘dishonestly’ by leaving out certain passages of the letter.
He said those allegations should not form part of her case at this stage, because they were ‘irrelevant’ to her claim for misuse of private information.
