Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, is now at war with the British media.
The war would only begin confirms Yahoo! News.
Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, filed his complaint along with some celebrities.
Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, 38, launched the attack on one of Britain’s biggest newspaper publishers. On October 6, 2022, a lawsuit was filed on behalf of Prince Harry with the High Court in London, reports Yahoo! News. Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex takes on the Associated Newspapers. As a reminder, this is the publisher of the Daily Mail, the Mail on Sunday and the MailOnline. The youngest son of King Charles III of England, 73, accuses the British media of the practice of illegal news gathering. Citing the list of alleged offenses shared by Prince Harry’s attorneys, Yahoo! News lists four serious offences.
The article talks about “the recording of live phone calls, the placement of listening devices in people’s cars and homes, and the use of private investigators to obtain information such as medical records”. For its part, Associated Newspapers completely refutes the accusations of the husband of Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, 41 years. The British publisher argued that it is “grotesque defamation”. The allegations of telephone hacking would be without proof and that such a practice would concern “30 years old articles”.
