The Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry, is taking legal action against the owners of two British tabloids — The Sun and the Daily Mirror, in relation to alleged phone hacking. Earlier this week, his wife and Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle has also began legal action against the Mail which is accused of unlawfully publishing a private letter to her father. It is not exactly known when the voicemail messages were intercepted, but it was a big scandal in the early 2000s. Following the latest development of the royal couple taking a stand with the legal route, people on the internet are happy about the decision. #IStandWiththeSussexes became a common hashtag on social media, with people expressing more support to the royal family fighting the media. Prince Harry Sues UK Tabloids the Sun, the Defunct News of the World and the Daily Mirror in Phone-Hacking Claim.

Prince Harry's detailed and emotional letter in which he spoke about the pain of losing a loved one to the constant reportage by the media. "There comes a point when the only thing to do is to stand up to this behaviour because it destroys people and destroys lives," he wrote. The phone-hacking scandal that blew up in 2006 led to the closure of the News of the World, the Sunday tabloid which had been Britain's biggest-selling newspaper.
