Prince Harry is set to sue the owners of British tabloids The Sun and the Daily Mirror over alleged hacking of phone messages.
“Claims have been filed on behalf of The Duke of Sussex at the High Court regarding the illegal interception of voicemail messages,” Buckingham Palace told NBC News in a statement, adding that because the particulars of the claims are not yet public, it could not comment further.
The Sun’s parent company, News Group Newspapers, confirmed that the Duke of Sussex launched legal action against it and said it has no further comment.
Reuters reports that court documents first reported by website Byline Investigates also show that Harry is targeting Mirror Group Newspapers, owned by Reach PLC, with the legal action.
Reach Group declined to comment.
