Discover why it's an important week for the Duke of Sussex

Why this Friday is such a significant day for Prince Harry

This Friday is a historic day as the landmark legal case against Mirror Group Newspapers comes to an end. Prince Harry, 38, was in the UK earlier this month to testify at the trial against the company.

When word of the trial’s conclusion is received, the royal is most likely to be at his residence in Montecito. Shortly after spending two days in court, he returned to his wife Meghan Markle and their two children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, in the United Kingdom.

According to Prince Harry, over a ten-year period, newspaper groups used illegal means to gather information about him in order to publish stories.

Along with the Duke, other well-known celebrities have testified in the case, including Michael Le Vell and Nikki Sanderson from Coronation Street.

Even though the case will be concluded this week, the judge, Mr. Justice Fancourt, can take months to consider the evidence before rendering a decision. As a result, a resolution might not be reached until after the summer.
