Prince Harry’s history with piracy dates back to his teens. In fact, like byline investigates reported in 2020, she started when she was just 16 and preparing for her GCSE exams.
According to a former News of the World editor who spoke with byline investigates, was tasked with finding evidence about Prince Harry in the late 1990s, when rumors began to circulate that the then-teenager was drinking and using drugs. In the absence of actual evidence, Greg Miskiw alleges that the magazine’s editor at the time, Rebekah Brooks, told him that find Test. Thus began the shadowy maneuvers against the teenager, and would continue for years. While the prince was studying at Sandhurst, the News of the World reported that he had cheated on an assignment, according to The Guardian. Your evidence? He had asked an aide for help, and they knew because they had hacked the aide’s voice mail.
Last year, private investigator Gavin Burrows spoke with BBC of his involvement in the hack and confirmed that Prince Harry’s then-girlfriend, Chelsy Davy, was also a target. “There was a lot of voicemail hacking; there was a lot of surveillance work on their phones, on their communications,” she acknowledged. In the same interview, he apologized, saying, “Basically, I was part of a group of people who robbed him of his normal teenage years.”
