Revelations from Prince Harry hacking trial so far

It’s day one for Prince Harry giving evidence in his claim against the publisher of the Daily Mirror - the first British royal to give court testimony in more than 130 years.

This episode of the Leader podcast is brought to you, in part, from outside the Rolls Building of the Royal Courts of Justice in the City of London, where the Duke of Sussex is suing Mirror Group Newspapers for damages.

He’s claiming journalists at its titles – which also include the Sunday Mirror and Sunday People – were linked to methods including phone hacking, so-called “blagging” or gaining information by deception and use of private investigators for unlawful activities. MGN denies all allegations against it.

Revelations from Harry’s much-awaited witness box appearance at courtroom 15 and in his 55-page witness statement cover royal family members, the government and close friends as he continues a personal crusade against the tabloid media.

For the latest, plus the wider context of Harry’s multiple civil claims, we’re joined by Evening Standard courts correspondent Tristan Kirk.
