Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex has begun a legal process against the owners of the Sun, Daily Mirror and non-existing News of the World due to the anticipated phone-hacking. This was reported by the BBC.
“We confirm that a claim has been issued by the Duke of Sussex,” a spokeswoman for News Group Newspapers (NGN) – the publishers of the Sun and the News of The World said.
The Buckingham Palace reported that the documents were filed on behalf of Prince Harry due to the possible alleged illegal interception of voicemail messages.
A source at Reach, which owns the Mirror, told the Press Association it was aware proceedings had been issued but had not yet received them, so was unable to comment further.
Jonny Dymond, the BBC’s royal correspondent, says the presumption is the legal action goes back to the phone-hacking scandal of the early 2000s
