Prince Harry is accused of going “nuclear” on the Royal family as he wants to bring down both the company and the media with his appearance in court. The prince is one of several celebrities who have filed a claim against the publisher Associated Newspapers Limited (ANL) for invasion of privacy, a claim that ANL denies, but Harry has also claimed that his family “withheld information” from him about the hacking phones. out by the press.
Harry flew in from California and did just that appeared in court during three of the four days of the hearing in support of the cause, despite not having to appear in person.
In his testimony, the prince wrote about the “Institution” withhold information from him about the possibility that he will take legal action against those who allegedly violated his privacy.
He said: “The institution made it clear that we didn’t need to know about phone hacking and it was made clear to me that the royal family was not on the witness stand because that could open a can of worms.”
Royal commentator Daniela Elser wrote in news.com.au that while Harry had every right to continue his cause if his claims prove true, there was no need for him to go “nuclear” on his business.
