Prince Harry is suing the publisher of the Daily Mirror over 33 articles published between 1996 and 2011 that he says were based on phone hacking or other illegal snooping methods, and is pursuing the lawsuit allegedly against the wishes of his father, now King Charles III.

"He [Prince Harry] will be, I imagine, under a lot of pressure from the palace to try to tone things down. But on the other hand, he is pretty alienated from a lot of these folks and he may feel that since he's not actually a working royal anymore that he's entitled to say whatever he wishes," says Alan Allport, Dr. Walter Montgomery and Marian Gruber Professor of History.
