Mirror hacking: Prince Harry says Piers Morgan ‘knew perfectly well what was going on’

February 10, 2024

The Duke of Sussex reignited his war of words with Piers Morgan after accepting “substantial” damages to end his four-year legal battle with Mirror Group Newspapers (MGN). The High Court heard that the Duke, 39, had agreed a settlement with the tabloid publisher rather than pursue a second phone hacking trial. In his victory statement, he singled out Mr Morgan, the former editor of the Daily Mirror, for criticism. That includes Mr Morgan, who as editor, knew perfectly well what was going on, as the judge held. Mr Morgan, who was not a witness at the trial, has denied wrongdoing.
