Prince Harry receives ‘substantial’ payout after phone hacking scandal

Prince Harry will receive a “substantial” payout from a British newspaper that hacked his phone for stories to bring the case to an end.

The Duke of Sussex had already been awarded £140,600 ($268,000) in damages in December after the High Court in London found Mirror Group Newspapers (MGN) was at fault.

The new amount will be on top of that.

The various payouts and rec recovered court costs could see more than a million dollars go into the Sussex’s bank account.

Prince Harry’s lawyer, David Sherborne, has also said that MGN will pay the Duke £400,000 ($774,500) to cover his legal fees.

MGN, now part of media company Reach, published the Mirror and Sunday People newspapers.
