The Duke is one of several well-known people who have filed complaints alleging misuse of personal data and unauthorized information gathering.

This included accessing and recording private phone conversations, hiring private investigators to install listening devices inside cars, and “blagging” of personal information.

On Monday, the first hearing in their lawsuits against Associated Newspapers Limited began at the Royal Courts of Justice with Harry, Sir Elton John, his husband David Furnish, Baroness Doreen Lawrence of Clarendon, and Sadie Frost all in attendance. (ANL).

Elizabeth Hurley and former Lib Dem MP Sir Simon Hughes are also a part of the group.

Harry’s attorney, David Sherborne, stated in a document submitted on his behalf on the first day of the trial: “In particular, suspicion and paranoia were caused by Associated’s publication of the unlawful articles: friends were lost or cut off as a result, and everyone became a “suspect” since he was duped by the way the articles were written into thinking that those close to him were the source of this information being provided to Associated’s newspapers.”

The claimant believes that Associated’s illegal actions amount to a major betrayal in light of media promises to behave better in the wake of his mother Princess Diana’s tragic and untimely death in 1997.

ANL’s attorneys asserted that the allegations are “firmly” denied and that the “stale” claims have been made too late in an effort to have the cases dismissed. ANL is also the publisher of The Mail on Sunday and MailOnline.

ANL is requesting that the claims be dismissed without a hearing.

On Thursday, the hearing before Mr. Justice Nicklin is scheduled to conclude. A decision is anticipated later.
