The former royal editor of the News of the World says he hacked Kate Middletonís phone 155 times, most recently on the day before he was arrested in 2006. Clive Goodman also told Britainís phone hacking trial Wednesday that he eavesdropped on Prince Williamís voicemails 35 times and Prince Harryís nine times. Goodman was briefly jailed in 2007 for hacking the phones of royal aides, but he told the court police never asked him whether he had hacked members of the royal family.
