THE Duchess of Sussex faces a huge legal bill for her High Court privacy case.
Meghan has racked up £1.8million costs already.
She is suing the Mail on Sunday over the publication of a letter she wrote to her estranged father in 2018.
The newspaper will also tally up costs of £1.2million, documents released in court revealed.
The judge, Master Francesca Kaye, described the legal bills as “excessive and disproportionate”.
She added that, despite those involved, the case was a “personal dispute” with “no wider public interest”.
Meghan, 39, is expected to face dad Thomas Markle, 76, during the ten-day trial in January.
Her legal costs include £524,000 for trial preparation and £304,700 for the trial itself, along with £200,000 on bringing the case to court, £190,000 for disclosure and £104,110 on statements.
Meghan fired barrister David Sherborne this month and replaced him with Justin Rushbrooke QC.
She was previously told to pay the paper’s £67,000 costs after losing an earlier hearing.
The Duchess is suing for breach of privacy, copyright and data protection.
