Prince Harry is back in London after his lighting trip for the Coronation – this time, he’s set to appear in court for his lawsuit against a British publisher. Harry is among 100 people suing Mirror Group Newspapers (MGN) – the company behind the Daily Mirror – over alleged phone hacking and other unlawful information gathering. The Duke of Sussex will become the most senior royal to appear in court since the 18th century, and he is expected to unload on a British tabloid industry he has called “the mothership of online trolling”. In reply, MGN will argue that some of the information they obtained came from royal insiders. Harry has previously said that it’s his “life’s work to change the British media landscape”, so emotions could be high. It’s a huge case and the part that Harry’s involved in will examine 33 stories in detail over 3 days this week.
