UK tabloid trial: Kate Middleton's phone hacked

Kate Middleton, Prince William Voicemails Hacked By UK Paper

LONDON (AP) - Jurors at Britain's phone hacking trial have been read intercepted messages left by Prince William on Kate Middleton's phone, in which he calls her "babykins" and jokes about almost being shot during a military training exercise.

The recordings from 2006 were found among the belongings of private investigator Glenn Mulcaire, who has been convicted of hacking the phones of aides to William and Prince Harry.

Three messages read out Thursday were left while William was attending Sandhurst military college. He and Kate married in 2011.

Seven people, including former News of the World editors Andy Coulson and Rebekah Brooks, are on trial on charges related to wrongdoing at the defunct Rupert Murdoch-owned newspaper.

Prosecutors said earlier in the trial that Middleton's name was on Mulcaire's list of phone hacking targets.

Why would details of the hacked messages actually be reported on? What is the point of that?

Shame on them for violating their privacy.

I realize that The Crown has little power left, but I for one would not want to tick off Elisabeth II. Some powers never go away, even in a constitutional monarchy.

On trial for violating their privacy, but then the recordings were read outloud in the trial. Seems contradictory.

I guess anyone can become a victim in this modern world of technology.

After the scandal from Prince Charles' juvenile sex conversations with Camilla, pre marriage, I would think the Royals would avoid using cell phones, or "mobiles" as the Europeans call them. Hmm. I wonder if Prince Charles still thinks that Camilla is so sexy.
