The Duke of Sussex, who has become the first royal to testify for more than a century at the phone hacking trial in London, also tried to turn questions on a lawyer after the High Court was told a story subject to one of his complaints came from a royal press release. Andrew Green KC, for Mirror Group Newspapers (MGN), told the royal: 'I am here to cross-examine you, I am afraid that's the way this works, Prince Harry.' Harry has alleged that around 140 articles published between 1996 and 2010 by Mirror Group Newspapers contained information gathered using unlawful methods. But Mr Green told the court that details in these stories actually came from other media outlets, including the BBC, as well as press releases, palace statements, the public domain, his aides and friends and even comments made by his mother Princess Diana. #friends #london #after #first #diana #story #royal #high #for #who #the #one
