The newspaper articles the Duke of Sussex claims involved unlawful activity

At the heart of his legal battle with the publisher of the Mirror are numerous articles about the Duke of Sussex’s life.

Harry alleges that the approximately 140 articles published by Mirror Group Newspapers (MGN) from 1996 to 2010 used information obtained through unlawful means, such as phone hacking.

The articles cover the Duke’s relationship with his family and ex-girlfriend Chelsy Davy, some injuries and illnesses, his military service and allegations of drug use.

Some 33 articles from 1996 to 2009 were selected for review during an ongoing trial over Harry’s disputed lawsuit against MGN.

MGN has informed the London trial that it disputes that 28 of the 33 articles involved unlawful gathering of information and that it was disallowed for the remaining five articles.

The editor claims the stories came from a range of sources, including information disclosed by royal households or other royals, freelance journalists and news outlets, as well as confidential sources with “extensive” royal contacts.
