Britain’s Prince Harry was back in the U.K. on Monday for an unannounced appearance at the country’s High Court as legal proceedings began in a privacy case in which the prince and six others are suing the Associated Newspapers group, which publishes the Daily Mail tabloid. Harry, the California-based youngest son of King Charles III, is among the high-profile figures, including singer Elton John, who brought the action against the newspaper group claiming “gross breaches of privacy.”
The well-known litigants claim to have “highly distressing evidence that they have been the victims of abhorrent criminal activity and gross breaches of privacy by Associated Newspapers,” according to an October 2022 statement from Hamlins, the law firm representing the group. The alleged breaches of privacy include the hacking of cell phone messages, deceitfully obtaining medical records, bribing police officials, and illegally accessing bank records, the statement said. Associated Newspapers has denied the allegations, calling them “preposterous smears” and “unsubstantiated and highly defamatory claims,” according to reports.

Nadia Nakai has thanked those who held her hand as she returned to work after the death of her boyfriend AKA. Kiernan “AKA” Forbes was shot dead on February 10.

Taking to her social media timeline on Monday, the rapper said the love and support she had received from close friends and her fans had assured her she would be OK.
“Thank you to everyone who supported me as I went back to work. I am grateful for what people did for me to make sure I’m OK. Sometimes I feel I’m undeserving of the support, the messages, the hugs, and love from my friends, family, fans as well as the venues I worked this weekend. It really gave me hope that I will be OK … There are so many genuinely good people out there and I’ll never take it for granted. Thank you guys,” she said.
