Prince Harry has settled his case against Mirror Group Newspapers (MGN) and accepted substantial damages, continuing his mission to hold the press accountable.
According to reports, the settlement comes after the High Court ruled in December that Harry was a victim of unlawful practices, including phone hacking, by journalists at Daily Mirror, Sunday Mirror, and Sunday People tabloids.
The court initially considered 33 of the 148 articles brought forward by Harry's legal team, ruling in his favor over 15.
However, Mirror Group Newspaper has now agreed to pay further substantial damages and cover Harry's legal costs to settle the outstanding claims.
In a statement, Harry expressed vindication, stating that the court's judgment confirmed the wrongdoing at MGN.
According to CTV News, his statement read, “in light of all this, we call again for the authorities to uphold the rule of law and to prove that no one is above it. That includes Mr Morgan, who as editor, knew perfectly well what was going on, as the judge held.”
He emphasized his commitment to holding media accountable and pursuing justice.
This victory marks a significant step in Harry's ongoing battle against media intrusion.
He has similar lawsuits pending against other media outlets, including Associated Newspapers and News Group Newspapers.
Despite not being present at the court hearing, Harry recently visited Britain to see his father, King Charles, who was diagnosed with cancer.
Their brief meeting underscores the complexities of Harry's relationship with his family amidst his public disputes and criticisms of the monarchy.
