The Phone Hacking Scandal: The Inside Story
A high court trial involving Prince Harry and the publisher of the Mirror newspaper has begun in London.
Harry is suing Mirror Group Newspapers (MGN) over allegations that its journalists hacked into his voicemails between 2005 and 2008.
The trial is expected to last for several weeks and will hear evidence from a number of witnesses, including Harry himself.
MGN has admitted that some of its journalists may have hacked into Harry's voicemails, but it denies that any of its senior executives were aware of the practice.
The case is the latest in a series of legal battles involving Harry and the British media.
In 2018, Harry and his wife Meghan Markle sued Associated Newspapers Limited, the publisher of The Mail on Sunday, over the publication of a private letter that Meghan had written to her father.
That case was settled out of court for an undisclosed sum.
The phone hacking scandal rocked the British media in the early 2000s when it was revealed that journalists at a number of newspapers had been illegally accessing the voicemail messages of celebrities, politicians, and other public figures.
The scandal led to the closure of the News of the World, one of the UK's biggest newspapers, and the resignation of several senior executives at other media companies.
The trial of Harry's case against MGN is expected to be closely watched by the media and the public.
The outcome of the case could have implications for the future of the British media and the way in which it reports on the royal family.
