In recent weeks, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have made several prominent moves in response to their treatment in the press. With the Duke of Sussex's emotional statement about the couple suing the Daily Mail for publishing a private letter the former "Suits" actress wrote to her father, the members of the British royal family have made their feelings quite known. Now, the Duke is taking it a step further by accusing two British tabloids of hacking his phone and stealing his voicemails.

According to Page Six, two claims against The Sun and the Daily Mirror were filed in High Court of Justice on behalf of the royal. These accusations include "illegal interception of voicemail messages," as confirmed by Buckingham Palace over the weekend. However, details beyond that remain scarce.

News Group Newspapers, who owns The Sun, has since acknowledged that Harry has launched the legal action. Additionally, Reach, owner of the Daily Mirror, stated that they are now "aware that proceedings have been issued," even though they said they have not yet received an official notice of them.

These lawsuits may not come as a surprise to fans of the royal family as the pair have taken several steps leading up to this in an effort to keep their private lives a bit more concealed. Earlier this year, the Duke and Duchess temporarily disabled comments on their Instagram after facing backlash for using private jets

Aside from the tension between the royals and the press, they have also gotten quite a bit of positive attention recently upon returning from their royal tour of Africa, which included the former actress being called "an inspiration to so many" by a very famous admirer.
