Meghan, the Duchess of Sus­sex, has lost the lat­est skir­mish in her pri­vacy law­suit against a tabloid news­pa­per, after Lon­don’s High Court ruled Tues­day the tabloid could amend its case ahead of a trial next year. Meghan is su­ing pub­lisher As­so­ci­ated News­pa­pers over ar­ti­cles the Mail on Sunday printed last year that in­cluded parts of a hand­writ­ten let­ter she sent to her es­tranged fa­ther, Thomas Markle. Last week, the pa­per ap­plied for per­mis­sion to amend its case, ar­gu­ing that Meghan and Prince Harry had co-op­er­ated with a bi­og­ra­phy about them and that Meghan had in­tended some pri­vate de­tails to be­come public, in­clud­ing the con­tents of the let­ter. The judge, Francesca Kaye made no view on the strength of the Mail’s case but said the amend­ments could not be said to be “unar­guable or ut­terly fan­ci­ful.” The trial is set to start Jan. 11.
