Ex-tabloid royal editor: I hacked Kate 155 times
LONDON – The former royal editor of the News of the World says he hacked Kate Middleton's phone 155 times, most recently on the day before he was arrested in 2006.
Clive Goodman also told Britain's phone hacking trial Wednesday that he eavesdropped on Prince William's voicemails 35 times and Prince Harry's 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.
Earlier in the trial the jury was read transcripts of intercepted phone messages from the days when William and Kate were courting. They married in 2011.
Goodman and six others are on trial over wrongdoing at the now-defunct Rupert Murdoch-owned tabloid. The defendants deny all the charges.
