Prince Harry has arrived at the High Court as legal proceedings begin in a phone-tapping and privacy case involving Associated Newspapers.
He is among a group of claimants in accusations against the publisher of The Daily Mail newspaper.
Associated Newspapers denies the allegations and a preliminary High Court hearing starting today, will consider legal arguments and a judge will decide whether it will go any further.
Harry, 38, is bringing the action along with others including actresses Elizabeth Hurley and Sadie Frost, Sir Elton John and his husband, filmmaker David Furnish, and Baroness Doreen Lawrence of Clarendon OBE.
They allege they have been victims of “abhorrent criminal activity” and “gross breaches of privacy” by Associated Newspapers.
