Prince Harry Makes Shock Court Appearance in Blockbuster Daily Mail Lawsuit

March 28, 2023

Toby Melville/ReutersPrince Harry made a stunning appearance at London’s High Court on Monday for the first hearing of a lawsuit accusing the publisher of the Daily Mail of phone-tapping and privacy breaches. The Duke of Sussex brought the action along with other celebrities including Elton John and actress Elizabeth Hurley against Associated Newspapers, but no one was expecting the semi-retired royal to show up at the central London court in person. The hearing on Monday will consider the initial legal arguments in the case and a judge will then decide if the case can proceed further. But Associated Newspapers has called the allegations “preposterous smears” and will try to have the case thrown out over four days of hearings in the English capital.
