Prince Harry accepts damages over Splash News Agency’s photos
The Duke of Sussex has accepted damages and an apology from a news agency which used a helicopter to take photographs of his home in the Cotswolds.
Prince Harry’s lawyers told a High Court hearing the pictures taken by Splash News and Picture Agency included one from inside a bedroom at the Oxfordshire property.
The court heard the pictures had “seriously undermined” Harry’s safety.
Splash said it had made an “error of judgement” which would not be repeated.
In a statement, it added: “We apologise to the Duke and Duchess for the distress we have caused.”
