Judge Timothy Fancourt ruled Wednesday that Harry’s case should be part of a trial alleging illegal gathering of information on behalf of MGN reporters between 1996 and 2011.
David Sherborne, a lawyer representing Harry and the other plaintiffs, told the court earlier that Harry would be the “sole witness” to rely on in his case – raising the possibility that the prince will be in the witness box to testify.
