A Guardian journalist accused the Attorney General Dominic Grieve of failing to show "reasonable grounds" for blocking the release of letters sent by Prince Charles to government ministers.
The High Court today ruled that Grieve's use of a ministerial veto to stop the letters being published was unlawful but the Attorney General said he will "pursue an appeal."
– A Guardian News & Media spokesperson
The public has a right to know if the heir to the throne is advocating policy or promoting causes to government ministers.
We welcome today's appeal court judgment finding that it was wrong to block the release of the letters.
We hope the Attorney General will recognise he has reached the end of the legal road and that government departments will now publish the correspondence so that the public can judge for themselves.
We are disappointed by the decision in the Evans (Prince of Wales letters) case. To protect the principles at stake we will pursue an appeal
The Attorney General's refusal to let the public see letters the Prince of Wales wrote to government ministers has been ruled unlawful.

His Royal Highness' second visit to the kingdom in my time here as ambassador exemplifies our wish to engage at the most senior levels and our determination to sustain the personal touch.
At a time of enormous turmoil and human agony in the Middle East, seen today perhaps most acutely in Syria, the Prince's advocacy of interfaith understanding and dialogue between communities is needed more than ever. His Majesty the King shares this deep concern.
I know that he and His Royal Highness will have much to discuss about the need for reconciliation and their hopes for the region's future.
