Prince Harry is not backing down in his legal fight against the British media. In fact, he just ramped it up.
In addition to the strongly worded statement he recently released over the media’s treatment of his wife, Meghan Markle, he’s now launching his own legal proceedings against two of the UK’s biggest publishers.
Prince Harry just took legal action against the owners of the Sun and the Daily Mirror. The proceedings are in response to alleged phone hacking. Sources said the incidents being referenced to in the lawsuit likely took place in the 2000s.
It’s a huge move, but Harry and Meghan obviously have very strong feelings about the media’s treatment of not only him and Meghan but also his entire family.
This is just the next step in a battle he and his wife seem willing to fight, which makes sense given Harry’s long history of criticizing the media. He recently commented on how history seems to be repeating itself today in a powerful statement.
The decision to file legal proceedings against the publishers has been confirmed by Buckingham Palace. The claims were filed at the high court regarding alleged illegal interception of voicemail messages, but no other details about the claims have been released. Meghan launched separate legal action against the Daily Mail on Sunday for publication of a private letter she sent to her father.
We don’t know just yet what will happen with any of the royal couple’s lawsuits, but many feel it’s about time something is done. It doesn’t appear that Harry and Meghan have any desire to back down until justice is done.
