Prince Harry court case live: Duke of Sussex expected at court ahead of giving evidence

The Duke of Sussex is due to appear at the High Court as his case against the publisher of the Daily Mirror over alleged unlawful information gathering begins.

The Duke is suing Mirror Group Newspapers (MGN) for damages, claiming journalists at its titles – which also include the Sunday Mirror and Sunday People – were linked to methods including phone hacking, so-called “blagging” or gaining information by deception and use of private investigators for illegal activities.

His claim is being heard alongside three other “representative” claims during a trial which began last month and is due to last six to seven weeks. 

Harry alleges about 140 articles published between 1996 and 2010 contained information gathered using unlawful methods, and 33 of these have been selected to be considered at the trial.

MGN is contesting the claims and has either denied or not admitted each of them. The publisher also argues some of the claimants have brought their legal action too late.

The duke is due to arrive at the court in London on Monday and is likely to enter the witness box on Tuesday, when he will face cross-examination from MGN’s lawyers.
