In regards to this one admitted occasion, the documents extend an apology to the Prince, saying it (the publisher) "unreservedly apologises and accepts that [Harry] is entitled to appropriate compensation."
However, when providing evidence in court, lawyers for MGN have said that the embattled Prince should be given a mere £500 in damages, a far cry from the more than £200,000 in damages that the Duke of Sussex is seeking.
"The Duke of Sussex accepted on multiple occasions that the supposedly private information about which he complains had in fact been previously and extensively published elsewhere by other media outlets or had been placed into the public domain by palace spokespeople," MGN lawyer Andrew Green told the court.
"In seeking to hold one element of the tabloid press to account for the intrusion the Duke of Sussex believes he has suffered at the hands of all press...he has advanced a claim which is wildly overstated and substantially baseless."

Moreover, whilst the lawyers said that MGN had "enormous sympathy" for the Prince's poor, and often traumatic experience with the media, they were quick to redirect blame, telling the London High Court in their closing submission that the Prince was bringing legal action against MGN specifically "as a vehicle to seek to reform the British media."
Previously, Prince Harry made the allegation in court documents that his brother, Prince William was also preparing to fight the publisher. Rather than appearing in court, the Duke of Sussex alleged that his brother settled for "a very large sum of money".
The current trial is set to wrap up sometime in July after a seven-week period. A judgement is expected in the coming months.
