Prince Charles letters can be released, Supreme Court rules

The UK Supreme Court says letters by Prince Charles to the government can be published, after a Guardian campaign.

The UK's highest court was asked to judge whether the Attorney General's office acted unlawfully when it prevented their publication in 2012.

The Guardian newspaper sought disclosure of the letters, written to government departments between 2004-5.

Clarence House said it was "disappointed the principle of privacy had not been upheld".

Nicholas Witchell reports.
