Prince William and Prince Harry’s relationship appears to be damaged beyond repair after Harry’s latest claims about his older brother, according to a report. The Duke of Sussex, in documents filed as part of his lawsuit against News Group Newspapers (NGN) for alleged unlawful information-gathering, claimed that Prince William quietly received “a very large sum of money” in a 2020 phone hacking settlement from the British newspaper arm of Rupert Murdoch’s media empire. Harry accused his brother of being part of an alleged deal between his family and his media tormentors.
An unnamed “friend” of Prince William told the Daily Beast that the Prince of Wales will likely never forgive his younger sibling for what he did. “Just when you think it can’t get any worse, it does,” the friend claimed. “This is scorched earth stuff from Harry. By revealing these secrets, he is burning everything to the ground. He is making it very clear that he considers his relationship with William is over.” The insider went on to say that Prince William will never trust his brother again.
The alleged payout was revealed in a summary of arguments presented by Prince Harry’s lawyer about why the royal’s lawsuit against NGN shouldn’t be thrown out. The duke’s attorney David Sherborne said Prince Harry used the settlement “as ‘a shield not a sword’ against NGN’s attack,” the Associated Press reported. The Duke of Sussex is suing the publisher of The Sun and the now-defunct News of the World over alleged unlawful information-gathering, including phone hacking.
NGN is trying to have the phone hacking lawsuits by Prince Harry and by actor Hugh Grant thrown out at a three-day hearing in London, which started Tuesday, arguing that the claims were brought too late.
Prince Harry alleged that he was prevented from bringing his case because of a “secret agreement” between the royal family and the newspapers that called for a settlement and apology. The deal, which he said was approved by the late Queen Elizabeth II, would have prevented future litigation from the royals.
NGN has denied the existence of any secret agreement. British broadcaster, lawyer and politician David Mellor also believed that Prince Harry may have ruined all chances of mending his relationship with the royal family with his revelation of Prince William’s alleged secret settlement with NGN.
“Harry is not only destroying his life, but he’s also destroying his ability to actually be accepted back into the royal family,” Mellor told co-hosts Eamonn Holmes and Isabel Webster on GB News. “William got a settlement of around a million pounds which, when you think about it, considering Murdoch has paid out hundreds of millions, is not excessive.”
The royal family has not yet commented on the matter, but the fallout from this latest revelation has raised serious concerns about the future of the relationship between Prince William and Prince Harry. Many have criticized Harry for his actions, saying that he is destroying the bond between the brothers and that he will never be able to repair it.
Good riddance. The Royals don’t need gutter trash in their family. Harry clearly made his decision to marry the trollop he did and breed with it. He can pay the consequences. Poor spoiled whiney man child. If William is smart he will move on with his life like Harry never existed. How humiliating for the Royals to have to deal with a spouled brat! They need to strip all titles and all ties for good with Harry. He further damages or cause further malice the Royals can sue his butt for everything he owns.
Leftists can’t handle any type of reality and it’s time for Harry and his trollop to learn some difficult adult lessons and learn to shut their mouths and act like they have a little sense. Harry and his trollop are too old to be acting like complete imbeciles.
Good… maybe we can stop hearing about any of these ‘royals’ any more…
