Prince Harry is set to sue The Sun and The Mirror over “phone hacking” – Buckingham Palace has confirmed.
The Royal already released a lengthy statement this week, hitting out at the British press for “bullying” his wife Meghan Markle and accused the Mail on Sunday of starting a “malicious campaign” against the former actress.
Now Prince Harry is set to sue two more publications after Meghan started her lawsuit against the Mail on Sunday for publishing a private hand-written letter she gave to her father Thomas Markle.
Harry is suing for alleged “phone hacking”, a royal source indicated that claims have been filed at the high court regarding alleged illegal interception of voicemail messages.
Although the claims have yet to be released, they were filed by solicitors Clintons, a company that has brought multiple phone-hacking claims in the past and won.
It is unknown if the claims are regarding recent voicemails or historic hacking. Back in the 2000’s the Royals were at the centre of some hacking cases, but they never tried to take legal action.
According to reports, this filing was made days before Meghan launched her legal action against the Mail newspaper.
