Prince Harry claims the Royal Family hid information about phone hacking from him without a doubt.

Today was the second day that the Duke of Sussex appeared in court as part of his defense of Daily Mail publisher Associated Newspapers.

According to Prince Harry, the Royal Family concealed information concerning phone hacking from him because they feared he would file a lawsuit, which would "open a can of worms."





Everything you need to know regarding Harry's most recent legal matter




In a witness statement, the Duke of Sussex claimed he was "conditioned to accept" his family's tradition of "never complain, never explain" when dealing with the media. He was suing Daily Mail publisher Associated Newspapers in a legal case.

However, when discussing allegations of phone hacking against News Group Newspapers, Harry stated, "I became aware that I had a claim that I could make" in 2018.


"The Institution was undoubtedly hiding information from me concerning NGN's phone hacking for a long time, and that has only become evident in recent years as I have pursued my claim with various legal counsel and representation," he stated.


He has already stated that he would refer to the Royal Family as "the Institution" in his proposal.


The prince is one of several claimants who have filed a lawsuit against Associated Newspapers, along with Sir Elton John, Liz Hurley, and Sadie Frost, accusing them of multiple privacy violations. The publisher disputes every accusation.


"It is not a misrepresentation to say that the bubble blew in terms of what I knew in 2020 when I moved out of the United Kingdom," he adds, describing how he learned that other members of or others connected to the Royal Family had brought phone hacking claims against the press.


He continued: "Due to the institutional silos, we never had a centralized discussion about who had filed claims.


Although it's a common misperception, we communicate only sometimes.


The Institution made it obvious to me that the Royal Family did not sit in the witness box because it may open up a can of worms, the prince continued. "The Institution made it apparent that we did not need to know anything about phone hacking."


He continued, "Even the ugliest or most suspicious items were often never brought to my attention" due to the Royal Family's "strict no-comment policy."


Prince Harry concluded his written submission to the court by stating that he was claiming because he "loves my nation, and I am gravely disturbed by the unrestrained power, influence, and crime" of the publisher.


He continued, "I must reveal this cover-up because the British public needs to know the entire scope of it.




Prince Harry makes his second consecutive visit to the High Court.
