Prince Harry’s legal battle against Associated Newspapers Limited, publishers of the Daily Mail and Mail on Sunday, began on Friday.
The prince is suing the company for misrepresenting him in an article last February, which claimed that his PR team attempted to put a spin on his legal fight with the British government.
Prince Harry is taking legal action against the home office because he believes he and his family should have guaranteed security while in the UK due to threats against them.
He is claiming that the article was defamatory because it accused him of misleading the public, while the Mail on Sunday argues that it was based on an honest opinion.
Although Prince Harry was not in court on Friday, he may take the witness stand in the case against the Mirror Group, which he and other public figures are suing for alleged phone hacking dating back decades.
The prince has said that these court cases are an attempt to bring about change and ensure that what has happened to him does not happen to others.
The judge will give a ruling on Friday’s case at a later date.
Neither Prince Harry nor Associated Newspapers Limited has commented on the case.
