British Royals: How Meghan Markle tackled THAT Sandringham summit
Harry and Meghan, now ensconced on Vancouver Island with Archie, came to realise that they simply could not just go back to the old way of things in Britain. It was a tough decision to make, but they would have to step back from their roles as senior royals. They could become some sort of semi-royals, they thought, and cut themselves off from access to royal money. They proposed to spend more time abroad, while still visiting Britain sufficiently to carry out their basic royal duties.
A High Court judge has accepted the's application to postpone the date of the full trial in the case she has brought against Associated Newspapers.
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.
Lawyers representing the Duchess in a remote hearing on Thursday also lodged an application to have her privacy action against the Mail On Sunday decided without a trial.
