Prince Harry could take the stand as part of a lawsuit against the publisher of the Daily Mirror after a judge confirmed his case should form part of a joint trial in May.

Harry, the Duke of Sussex, is one of several public figures whose allegations against Mirror Group Newspapers (MGN) will be considered at a trial scheduled for May.

Judge Timothy Fancourt ruled on Wednesday that Harry’s case, which alleges unlawful information gathering on behalf of MGN journalists between 1996 and 2011, should be part of the trial.
