UK court hears latest libel suit, Prince Harry's lawyers says newspaper implied he had lied

A newspaper article about Prince Harry's legal battle with the British government

over his security arrangements implied that he had lied and tried to manipulate public

opinion, lawyers for Queen Elizabeth's grandson said on Thursday.

Harry is suing Associated Newspapers, publisher of the Mail on Sunday, for libel over an article in February

which alleged he had tried to keep secret details of his legal fight to reinstate

his police protection, and his aides had then tried to put a positive spin on it.

Associated Newspapers denies the article was libellous.

This is the latest court spat between Harry and wife Meghan and the newspaper group,

reflecting their dislike of the British tabloid press in general, and its regular criticism of the royal couple.
