Deal with Daily Mirror
Meanwhile, Prince Harry's lawyers have settled the remaining parts of his lawsuit against the publisher of the British newspaper “Daily Mirror” over phone hacking for a large sum. The two sides agreed out of court that Mirror Group Newspapers (MGN) would initially make an interim payment of £400,000 (about €468,000), Harry's lawyer David Sherborne said at London's High Court on Friday. Prince Harry himself did not participate in the process.
The court had already awarded Harry £140,600 in damages as part of the case in December. At that time, the publishing house had 33 articles, 15 of which, according to the court, were the result of illegal information collection. Between 1996 and 2011, journalists from the Daily Mirror, Sunday Mirror and People obtained information about Harry's private life by listening to phone messages and used them as headlines. Another 115 reports were still pending. In these cases, once an agreement is reached, there is no further trial. MGN said it was satisfied with the agreement.
Harry is involved in other lawsuits. These include lawsuits against publishers Associated Newspapers Limited ('Daily Mail', 'Mail on Sunday') and News Group Newspapers ('The Sun'), which published the 'News Of The World' tabloid, which was discontinued years ago. This also includes illegal collection of information. In the proceedings against the British Home Office, Harry also wants to ensure that he and his family are given full police protection despite leaving the British royal family's inner circle. Harry and his wife, Duchess Meghan, have been living with their children in California for several years and have stepped back from their royal duties.
