Prince Harry to Return to UK to Give Evidence in Legal Battle Against Newspaper Group

...By Roland Peterson for TDPel Media.

Prince Harry is expected to return to the UK to give evidence in a legal battle he is involved in against Mirror Group Newspapers (MGN).


He will attend the High Court in June 2023 regarding his claim over alleged unlawful information gathering by the newspaper group.

The hearing will take place a month after King Charles’s Coronation in May. Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle have not confirmed whether they will attend the historic ceremony or not.

During a preliminary hearing on Wednesday, it was stated that all witnesses on Harry’s side will give evidence in person, implying that Prince Harry will give evidence at the High Court in London.

Mirror Group Newspapers includes titles such as The Mirror, Sunday Mirror, and Sunday People. The newspaper group will contest the claims, arguing that some have been brought too late.

Meanwhile, Prince Harry unexpectedly attended three out of four days of a privacy hearing against Associated Newspapers Limited (ANL) in London last week.

He is one of several high-profile individuals to bring claims against ANL for misuse of private information. None of the claimants, including Prince Harry, were formally required to be at the hearing.


ANL, the Daily Mail’s publisher, has described the allegations as “preposterous smears.” The preliminary hearing considered legal arguments, and a judge will decide whether it will go any further.

In October, when the legal action was announced, the newspaper group said in a statement that they refute the claims and consider them to be nothing more than an attempt to drag the Mail titles into the phone hacking scandal concerning articles up to 30 years old.

They claim that the allegations are unsubstantiated and highly defamatory, based on no credible evidence and are just a fishing expedition by claimants and their lawyers.
