Prince Harry smiles as he makes surprise appearance at court for privacy hearing | The Sun

PRINCE Harry has arrived at court smiling this morning as he makes a surprise appearance for a privacy hearing.

The Duke of Sussex, 38, walked into the High Court in London surrounded by bodyguards.

Harry is back in the UK as he hopes to win another battle against publishers Associated Newspapers Limited (ANL).

The case is over alleged unlawful information-gathering at paper titles including the Daily Mail and the MailOnline.

Press and public gathered outside to see him in seemingly high spirits.

One photographer bumped into the royal before he was swiftly pushed to the side by security.

The shock appearance comes after the Prince complained visiting the UK was hard due to security concerns.

Harry and Meghan voiced fears over their safety after leaving the firm.

And the couple are yet to decide whether they will attend King Charles' coronation in May.

Last year Harry won a court battle against the Mail on Sunday for defamation.

He sued after the paper ran a story about his separate High Court claim regarding his UK security arrangements.

The piece published in February 2022 was under the headline: "Exclusive: How Prince Harry tried to keep his legal fight with the government over police bodyguards a secret… then – just minutes after the story broke – his PR machine tried to put a positive spin on the dispute."

The publisher today is also up against Sir Elton John and Baroness Doreen Lawrence.

The celebrities announced in October they were bringing claims for misuse of private information against the company.

However, ANL hit back at the allegations, describing them at the time as "preposterous smears" and a "pre-planned and orchestrated attempt to drag the Mail titles into the phone-hacking scandal".

A spokesperson for ANL also said the allegations were "unsubstantiated and highly defamatory claims, based on no credible evidence".

The four-day preliminary hearing at the Royal Courts of Justice begins today.
