Statement read by Duke of Sussex’s lawyer after he settled rest of phone-hacking claim against newspaper group
Prince Harry has settled the remaining parts of his phone-hacking claim against the publisher of the Daily Mirror, after winning a substantial part of his case and damages against the Daily Mirror in December. Following is the statement read outside the court by his lawyer on Friday.
After our victory in December, Mirror Group have finally conceded the rest of my claim, which would have consisted of another two trials, additional evidence and 115 more articles.
Everything we said was happening at Mirror Group was in fact happening, and indeed far worse, as the court ruled in its extremely damning judgment. As the judge has said this morning, we have uncovered and proved the shockingly dishonest way the Mirror Group acted for many years and then sought to conceal the truth.
