The BBC's newest royal documentary has garnered some hype after it delved deep into Prince Harry and Prince William's relationship with one another and the media.

In 2001, Prince Harry was involved in a phone-hacking scandal that shocked the royal firm. In the now-defunct tabloid News Of The World, confidential pieces of information were leaked, which include a very private conversation between Prince Harry and then-girlfriend Chelsey Davy.

Chelsey Davy reportedly sent an intimate photo to Prince Harry. During the height of the scandal, Hunt revealed that he exchanged words with Prince Harry where the royal told him that he wanted to do an interview.

"I remember a conversation with Harry where I said, 'Oh, you should do an interview, you should talk about it, because it clearly really exercises you," Hunt claimed.

Unfortunately, the interview never happened as Prince Harry was, allegedly, stopped by palace personnel to further talk with Hunt during their meeting.

Hunt also stated that Prince Harry kept asking why he could not do the interview and said he wanted to talk about the hacking.

Did Prince Harry Sue News Of The World?

Prince Harry could never file a lawsuit against News Of The World even after the news organization published sensitive pieces of information about him. However, the perpetrators behind the phone hacking were still imprisoned due to different charges.

News Of The World royal editor Clive Goodman pleaded guilty to intercepting phone messages from Clarence House and went to jail for six months. Co-conspirator Glenn Mulcaire was also imprisoned for six months.

Newsweek reported that, despite the damages, it is too late for Prince Harry to sue the news outlet.
