Prince Harry also blasted the MGN group for their coverage of James Hewitt. He was a cavalry officer who had a relationship with Princess Diana. The article suggested he was Hewitt’s son. The Duke of Sussex was only 18 then and had recently lost his mother. The former royal believes the article was published to discredit him as a member of Royal Blood.
The Duke of Sussex said in the court, “Numerous newspapers had reported a rumor that my biological father was James Hewitt, a man my mother had a relationship with after I was born. At the time, when I was 18 years old and had lost my mother just six years earlier, stories such as this felt very damaging and very real to me.”
