On Friday, it appeared that Harry had started a lawsuit against the owners of the Sun and the Mirror of the Mirror over the alleged hacking of his phone, just days before his Megan Markle's wife announced a criminal case against the Associated Newspapers and mail on Sunday over the publication of a private correspondence addressed to her father.
As Bylin Investigators first reported, the lawsuits were filed on September 27 by the Supreme Court of London through Harry Clinton's LLP
a Buckingham Palace official told the Daily Daily Beast. : "I can confirm that the claims have been filed on behalf of the Duke of Sussex to the High Court for the unlawful interception of voicemails. Given the details of the claims have not yet been published, I cannot offer more comments at this time."
The BBC reported that "Harry's charges were NGN by 2010, but it was not yet "clear when its claims against Mirror . "Phone hacking can even date back to the early 2000s when Harry was a teenager.

Morgan, current As a Bind to ITV & # 39; s Good Morning, Britain did not immediately return a Daily Beast request for comment.

Od ak Morgan, who strenuously states that Markle "reconciled" him after establishing an initial friendship, to become a relentless critic of Prince Harry and Megan on the ITV Breakfast show and through his Daily Mail column; his latest headline: "Stop sacrificing , Harry – you and Megan have brought negative press on yourself, and only when you turn things around do you ruin it all. "
Morgan called Markle" a self-possessed professional actress who came to the role of her life and is set to milk her for all that she is. worth it. "
A legal insider told Byline Investigates:" Morgan's Pierce is critical of Harry and Megan turning to law this week against Mail on Sunday .

" I suspect this is similar. We are now being harassed as phone hackers, but in the vast majority of cases, someone actually told us the story and we did not break anyone's phone. Usually, lawyers decide because it's easier, but for some reason Harry has decided that he wants to make a big public statement.
"The general consensus is that it's just some vendetta. But what did it intersect? What does it matter? Like it went crazy. I mean, if you're actually reading the papers, we're doing the most wonderful illumination on Megan and Harry.
