Prince Harry is expected to reveal more shocking information about the Royal Family when he testifies in court next week for his trial against a media group.
Experts and historians have issued new warnings to King Charles and the Royal Family, saying Harry may leak additional shocking details about the Cabinet and some members of the Royal Family, similar to his past revelations.
Over the past six months, the Duke of Sussex has made headlines due to his legal battles with the British press, as well as the release of his memoir and the Netflix documentary series. In these works, he accused other members of the royal family of colluding with tabloids.
Fifth in line to the throne, King Charles’ youngest son, Harry, will give evidence at the High Court in London in connection with the case he and other figures have brought against Mirror Group Newspapers (MGN), publisher of the Daily Mirror, Sunday Mirror and Sunday People.
David Yelland, senior communications adviser and former editor of Rupert Murdoch’s Sun tabloid, commented on the royal family’s desire to avoid legal action. According to him, these cases often result in mutual assured destruction, and he believes that none of the people involved will come out of it with a bang.
MGN faces legal action from more than 100 other celebrities and high-profile figures, with the Duke of Sussex and three others selected as test cases.
Harry’s court appearance will mark the first time a member of the royal family will testify in 130 years since Edward VII testified as a witness in a divorce case in 1870. Therefore, his presence should attract the worldwide attention.
During the trial, Harry is expected to share more explosive details about his royal life and the behavior of some senior royals. He has previously claimed that his family and their aides were complicit in leaking negative stories to protect their own reputations. However, the palace has yet to respond to any of Harry’s allegations.
The ongoing trial, which began last month, uncovered evidence of MGN reporters or private investigators commissioned by them engaging in large-scale phone hacking, as well as other unlawful acts to obtain information. on the prince and the other claimants.
While MGN disputes these allegations and says the high profile figures had no knowledge of the hack or any concealed wrongdoing, the legal proceedings continue.
This week’s court appearance will mark Harry’s second time this year at the High Court in London. He previously joined singer Elton John and others for hearings in March related to their lawsuit against the publisher of the Daily and Sunday Mail tabloids.
