Prince Harry Speaks Out Against Misleading Tabloids
In a recent testimony before the High Court in London, Prince Harry accused certain tabloids of being “misleading” throughout his life. The youngest son of King Carlos III, who is currently involved in a lawsuit against the group that owns the Daily Mirror newspaper, claimed that some media outlets have “covered up bad practices.” He further expressed his frustration, stating “I don’t know what to say about it” when presented with the evidence.
The prince faced a long interrogation in court with his defense lawyer, David Sherborne, and the lawyer representing the Mirror Group Newspapers, Andrew Green. The latter argued that Harry did not have any concrete evidence that reporters had utilized unlawful means to obtain sensitive information about the prince’s life.
In some of the journalistic notes, Harry alleged that information had come from “sources from the Palace [de Buckingham],” including passages about his past relationships. Specifically, Harry claimed that details of his relationship with ex-girlfriend Chelsy Davy were obtained through “illegal wiretapping.”
During the court proceedings, the MGN lawyer denied that the media group’s reporters had unlawfully obtained any information and stated that Harry was engaging in “total speculation.” However, the prince insisted that it was possible that his communications have been compromised more than a decade ago.
The trial will continue with testimonies from other plaintiffs, and no date has been fixed for the outcome of the case. Harry’s testimony has shone a light on the relationship between the British press and the royal family. The prince’s accusations reinforce the need for fair and honest journalism.
