The Duke Of Sussex Faulted Of 'Destroying' Evidence In High Court Case

Prince Harry has been accused in a hearing of “deliberately destroying” evidence in his High Court case against News Group Newspapers, the publishers of The Sun.

The publishers are seeking the release of texts, WhatsApp messages, and emails that the Duke of Sussex exchanged with the King’s private secretary Sir Clive Alderton, Keeper of the Privy Seal Sir Michael Stevens, and his memoir’s ghostwriter, JR Moehringer.

However, David Sherborne, representing the Duke, dismissed the requests as a “fishing expedition.”

Harry is accused of destroying these pieces of evidence, with his representatives stating that he and JR Moehringer communicated via Signal for the book, and their chat history was erased before the book’s publication in January 2023.

Additionally, Hotmail addresses used by Harry in 2014 are no longer accessible. Two email accounts have been searched for the 55 key terms requested by NGN.

Anthony Hudson KC, representing NGN, claimed that the Duke and his legal team were “trying to create an obstacle course.”

In a pre-trial hearing he said: “There ought to be proper evidence about this. Those messages are clearly within his control, even if they have been deleted. That’s why we say the search for texts and WhatsApps is important. It is, I’m afraid we say, another example of the obfuscation in relation to the claimant’s case. We say it’s shocking and extraordinary that the claimant has deliberately destroyed…”

He was then interrupted by Mr. Justice Fancourt, who stated that it wasn’t “clear” what happened with the messages. In response to Mr. Hudson, Mr. Sherborne countered by saying that the claims suggesting the Duke “dragged his feet, had to be dragged kicking and screaming, had set up some kind of obstacle course” were incorrect. He added that only “a handful” of the 35,000 emails searched were “relevant.”
