Topic: UK court rules Prince Charles letters to ministers can be disclosed


By Estelle Shirbon LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's Supreme Court ruled on Thursday that 27 letters written by Prince Charles to ministers in 2004-2005 can be disclosed to the media, a step that could cast doubt over the political neutrality of the future king. The Guardian newspaper has sought for a decade to obtain the letters sent to ministers in then-Prime Minister Tony Blair's government. After the Court of Appeal ruled last year that his ministerial veto was unlawful, Grieve appealed to the Supreme Court in a last-ditch attempt to stop disclosure, arguing it could undermine Prince Charles' position. "We dismiss the Attorney General's appeal," the court's President David Neuberger said in his ruling.
