High Court judge to hear details of Harry’s settlement with news agency


A High Court judge is to hear details of the Duke of Sussex’s settlement with a news agency which took pictures of his Cotswolds home from a helicopter.

Mr Justice Warby is expected to hear a statement in open court at the Royal Courts of Justice in London on Thursday in relation to Harry’s privacy and data protection complaints against Splash News and Picture Agency.

At a hearing earlier in May, the court heard that photographs which showed “the living area, dining area and bedroom” of the property had “very seriously undermined the safety and security of the Duke” and his wife Meghan, who “felt they were no longer able to live at the property”.

Giving permission for the statement on Harry’s behalf to be read in open court, Senior Master Barbara Fontaine ruled that “the evidence supports the position” that the photographs in question “did undermine in a serious way the safety and security of the applicant and his wife”.
