A friend of King Charles told The Daily Beast that Prince Harry “The remaining bridge torpedoes” with his family. accusing the monarchy of “controlling” him and being abusive He “hided information” about hacking the phone from him so that he would not “open a can of worms” by appearing in court.
Why did Charles and Prince William turn down the opportunity to meet with Harry this week? A friend of the king told The Daily Beast that “trust is gone.”
Harry, along with six other claimants, including Sir Elton John, accused Associated Newspapers Limited (ANL), the publisher, of Daily MailInvading their privacy by using private detectives who intercept their calls and voicemails. and even installing tracking and listening devices in cars and homes. ANL denies all allegations.
In the testimony of extraordinary witnesses recorded in court records yesterday Harry, who attended the in-person hearing in London. Alleged collusion between Newsgroup newspapers (publisher of time and the sun) and his family, stating, “There is an agreement between the Foundation and NGN that we will not participate in or even discuss the possibility of suing NGN until the phone hacking-related litigation is over.
“The institute made it clear that we didn’t need to know anything about hacking phones. And it made me realize that the royal family was not sitting in the witness box because that might open a can of worms.
“The Foundation has undoubtedly withheld my information for a long time about the hacking of NGN phones and that has become evident in the last few years. as I have pursued my own claims with different legal advice and representation.”
He makes similar claims in his memoirs: reserve and a six-part Netflix documentary series, alleging that his family and their employees colluded with the media. Sometimes he sells him out for his own benefit.
A friend of the king told The Daily Beast, “Harry has torpedoed all the remaining bridges with this command. It’s only six weeks until the coronation and it’s the last thing Charles wants.”
When asked if they were surprised Charles refused to meet Harry during his trip to England, His office said he was “too busy” to do so. The friend replied, “Trust is gone. And I think that’s pretty clear. without the King refusing to attend.”
Prince William, who gave up the opportunity to meet with his brother this week Unlikely to be impressed with Harry’s efforts on behalf of the nation.
A friend told The Daily Beast, “William is beyond this step. If this is about his feud with note that would be one thing But Harry still goes out of his way to try to humiliate his family. How can you relate to someone who does that?”
Harry’s court appearance this week makes him the first royal to appear in a courtroom. Ever since Princess Anne pleaded guilty to an out-of-control dog in 2002.
In other parts of his testimony He said he was only aware of the extent of the alleged hack against him “in 2020 when I moved out of the UK”.
He continued: “There has never been a centralized discussion between us regarding the claimants as each office in the institution is separate. There is a misconception that we are all in touch all the time. But that’s not true.”
Harry’s comments seem aimed at refuting the arguments raised by the ANL that the claim is “outdated”.
In another part of the witness testimony He accused the Palace of being “acclimatizing” him mentally, saying: “After my mother’s death in 1997 when I was 12 and her treatment from the hands of the press, I always had an uncomfortable relationship with the media. However, as a member of the academy, the policy was ‘no complain, no explanation’. There was no alternative. I was destined to accept it. For the most part, I accept interest in my public performance.”
Harry’s claim that the monarchy basically works against him disgusts the palace.
A former Buckingham Palace official who worked with Charles, William and Harry during their tenure told The Daily Beast: “Anyone at the Palace ever tried to do it was looking after the Headmaster and yes, that could include Encouraging them not to take legal action on a regular basis is rarely good for anyone. The royal family can spend their entire lives suing everyone if they want. It is unfair to suggest that those people Most of them spent their entire lives working hard for their families. with very little award or recognition are conspiring against Harry.”
“There has never been a centralized discussion between us as to who is claiming as each office in the institution is separate.”
— Prince Harry
In another part of his statement Harry provided insight into what he described as the “lonely” nature of the royal court.
He said: “To this day There are members of my royal family and friends who may be targeted by NGN, and I don’t know if they have called. There has never been a centralized discussion between us as to who is claiming as each office in the institution is separate. There is a misconception that we are all in touch all the time. But that’s not true.”
A former officer said: “Harry and William shared the office and staff until 2019. All phone hacking investigations came into existence following the details of calls between William and William. (TV reporter) Tom Bradby ends up at news of the world. Harry knows about it.”
in the testimony of witnesses Harry made it clear that his goal was to remain humble. Or it may even destroy the relevant newspapers, saying, “If the defendant, who owns several national newspapers, including daily mail which by its own definition It is the most influential and popular newspaper in the UK. could evade justice without a trial for my claim. And what about the industry as a whole and its consequences for our great country?
“Unfair is not a big enough word to describe the fact that Associated is trying at this early stage to prevent me from filing a claim.
“If the most powerful newspaper company manages to escape justice, in my opinion The whole country is doomed.”
