Prince Harry arrives for second day in court of privacy hearing in case against Daily Mail publisher

Prince Harry has arrived for his second day in court flanked by security after jetting into London for a privacy hearing.

The Duke of Sussex, 38, waved to the public as he walked up the steps of the High Court again this morning. The surprise appearance comes after his complaints that visiting the UK was hard due to security concernsCredit: APThe Royal continues to battle publisher Associated Newspapers Limited (ANL) over allegations of unlawful information gathering.

ANL, the publisher of the Daily Mail, The Mail on Sunday and MailOnline, strongly denies the allegations.

The publisher is also up against Sir Elton John and Baroness Doreen Lawrence, Sadie Frost and Liz Hurley.

The Duke's surprise appearance comes after his complaints that visiting the UK was hard due to security concerns. Eco-warrior Harry jetted in from California to attend the four-day preliminary hearing.

This is the first time Harry has been back on home soil since the Queen's funeral.

The Duke and his wife 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. It is not known whether Meghan and kids Archie, 3, and Lilibet, 1, have also made the journey to London.

It's understood a trip to see the King and brother William will not be on the cards during Harry's brief visit.

Buckingham Palace said Charles is not in Windsor or London today.

Meanwhile the Prince and Princess of Wales are away with their family for the Easter break. 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."

ANL hit back at the fresh 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 claims were "unsubstantiated and highly defamatory claims, based on no credible evidence". Harry turned up for the first day yesterday smiling as he was surrounded by bodyguards.

He then sat at the back of the courtroom making notes in a black book. As he jotted away, the Prince shook his head at some of the Associated News Ltd’s barristers comments.

The Duke is also taking legal action against the Home Office over security arrangements when he is in the country.
