Prince Harry slams Piers Morgan and to add to the frenzy a protestor outside court ended up being a 90s pop star.
His comments on Piers Morgan were written on page 12 of his 55-page witness statement.
Prince Harry slams Piers Morgan
The Duke of Sussex wrote: “The thought of Piers Morgan and his band of journalists earwigging into my mother’s private and sensitive messages (in the same way as they have me) and then having given her a ‘nightmare time’ three months prior to her death in Paris, makes me feel physically sick and even more determined to hold those responsible, including Mr Morgan, accountable for their vile and entirely unjustified behaviour.”
Later in the statement – paragraph 194 – Prince Harry accuses Morgan of inflicting a “barrage of horrific personal attacks and intimidation” on both him and Meghan.
“Unfortunately, as a consequence of me bringing my Mirror Group claim, both myself and my wife have been subjected to a barrage of horrific personal attacks and intimidation from Piers Morgan, who was the Editor of the Daily Mirror between 1995 and 2004, presumably in retaliation and in the hope that I will back down, before being able to hold him properly accountable for his unlawful activity towards both me and my mother during his editorship,” he wrote.
Morgan told Sky News he didn’t see any of Harry’s comments, but added: “I wish him luck with his privacy campaign and look forward to reading about it in his next book.”
90s pop star
A protester seemingly disrupted a live broadcast outside the High Court where Prince Harry’s phone hacking case continues today.
It turned out to be East 17 singer, Brian Harvey.
Harvey wore a ‘BHTV’ (Brian Harvey TV) tracksuit, and carried a large printout of a private email.
“I will help you!”, he shouted to Prince Harry
Harvey filed a civil claim a number of years ago against News Group Newspapers, over allegations of phone hacking.
