Prince Charles and Camilla targets of phone hacking

by

British authorities say they issued a warning to Buckingham Palace after coming across evidence Prince Charles and Camilla may have had their phones hacked. At least 10 members of the royal household are believed to have been targeted by News of the World’s specialist phone-hacker, Glenn Mulcaire. The revelation follows reports the tabloid bribed a royal protection officer in order to obtain the private phone numbers of the royal household. Previous statements by police have identified only five royal victims—Prince William, Prince Harry and three members of staff who were named in the trial of the News of the World’s royal correspondent, Clive Goodman, in January 2007.
