Prince Harry and singer Elton John have made a surprise appearance at London’s High Court.
Prince Harry in court for privacy suit against tabloid
Prince Harry and Elton John have appeared in a London court as the lawyer for a group of British tabloids prepared to ask a judge to toss the lawsuit they brought with several other high-profile people who allege phone tapping and other invasions of privacy.
Harry’s presence at the High Court in London is a sign of the importance he attaches to the case, one of several lawsuits the Duke of Sussex has brought against the media.
The hearing is expected to last four days.
The case alleges Associated Newspapers Ltd., which publishes titles including the Daily Mail, commissioned the “breaking and entry into private property,” engaging in unlawful acts that included hiring private investigators to bug homes and cars and record private phone conversations.
