Prince Harry entered his ongoing lawsuit against the Mirror Group and Associated Newspapers with a lengthy list of accusations, but it appears as though he doesn't have the proof needed to secure a legal win. The High Court demanded the Duke of Sussex bring "hard evidence" to verify his claims of wiretapping.

"I believe phone-hacking was on an industrial scale across at least three of the papers at the time and that is beyond doubt," Harry told the court.

He later admitted that if he were to lose his battle against the tabloid industry, it would be "some injustice."

The Spare author explained that his feelings were backed by his old call logs. "There is hard evidence to suggest an incredible amount of suspiciousness and I believe that burner phones were used extensively," he explained.

"I think [the current legal action] was a discussion about how to find a way to stop the abuse and intrusion that was coming against me and my wife… without relying on the institution’s lawyers," he added.

During his witness statement, Harry pointed to his failed romance with Chelsy Davy as verification. He discussed how the former couple took a "make or break" trip and paparazzi interference became a catalyst for their breakup.

"Can you help by identifying when ... you experienced this strange activity?" the judge asked.

"From the moment I had a mobile phone," Harry replied.

"Are you saying this continued throughout the period?” the judge pondered.

"It never stopped," the duke quickly said.

The Royal Observer previously reported Harryy believes the media giant's interest in his life caused emotional distress that could end the lives of celebrities. "Every one of these articles played an important role – a destructive role – in my growing up," Harry admitted.

While articulating his concerns with the media, the publisher's attorney, Andrew Green, pushed the royal rebel to explain some of his accusations.

"Hold people accountable for what they’ve done," Green asked the Archewell cofounder in reference to his evidence.

"How much more blood will stain their typing fingers before someone can put a stop to this madness," Harry stated.

"Who has blood on their hands?" Green pushed back.

"Editors and journalists for causing a lot of pain, upset, and in some cases inadvertently death," Harry later clarified.

Harry's case was reported by The Independent.
