STORY: Harry, the younger son of King Charles, has brought the lawsuit against Associated Newspapers (ANL), along with singer Elton John, and his husband David Furnish, as well as actors Elizabeth Hurley and Sadie Frost.
They allege they were victims of "numerous unlawful acts" carried out by journalists or private investigators working on behalf of ANL titles the Daily Mail and the Mail on Sunday.
These included hacking mobile phone messages, bugging calls, getting private information such as medical records by deception or "blagging," and "commissioning the breaking and entry into private property," their lawyer David Sherborne said. The alleged activity ran from 1993 to 2011, and even up to 2018.
ANL, which is seeking to have the case thrown out, said in a statement it categorically denied the allegations and would vigorously defend them if necessary.
