Prince Harry relaunches his anti-press crusade

The renegade royal is back. Having spent the past few years endlessly invading the privacy of others for financial gain, Prince Harry has turned up in London to complain about newspapers, er, doing just that. The dilettante Duke of Sussex arrived at the High Court this morning as legal proceedings begin in the phone-tapping and privacy case in which he is involved.

Harry is merely the most blue-blooded of a gaggle of ‘slebs who are currently suing Associated Newspapers, publishers of the Daily Mail and Mail on Sundayalongside the likes of Sir Elton John, Sadie Frost and Liz Hurley who allege unlawful information gathering. Harry’s legal firm Hamlins alleges that ANL has paid police officials, accessed bank accounts through illicit means and hired private investigators to place listening device inside people’s homes. The publisher has described the allegations as ‘preposterous smears’. The four-day preliminary High Court hearing will consider legal arguments and a judge will decide whether the case will go any further.

Still, whatever the outcome, at least Harry will have something to put in his next book. How dare the press leak, intrude and breach privacy – don’t they know that’s his job?
