Some cheeky blighters hacked Kate Middleton’s phone! The ongoing phone-hacking scandal with Rupert Murdoch’s News of the World in the U.K. was revealed to have gone higher up than anybody imagined. While it was known that the paper had hacked the phones of royal household staff, court testimony today indicates that the tabloid also managed to hack the phones of Kate Middleton and Prince Harry. And while illegal phone tapping is not at all OK, the transcripts of some of the voicemails read in court will totally make you fall in love with Prince William all over again.
In the first transcript read to the jury, he calls Kate “babykins,” and says:
“I had a busy day today again. I’ve been running around the woods of Aldershot chasing shadows and getting terribly lost, and I walked into some other regiment’s ambush, which was slightly embarrassing because I nearly got shot. Not by live rounds but by blank rounds, which would be very embarrassing though.”
News of the World took that information and ran a story headlined, “William shot in ambush.”
In another, even more charming example, Prince William allegedly left a voicemail for Prince Harry where he put on a squeaky voice and pretended to be Chelsy Davy. According to the Huffington Post:
The court also heard extracts of transcripts of a message William left for his younger brother Harry in which he put on a high voice and pretended to be Harry’s then girlfriend Chelsy Davy and called him “ginger”, referring to his hair color.
OK, the phone hacking thing is insane and completely not acceptable. But these transcripts make Prince William sound more charming and hilarious than we ever imagined he could be. Middle school crush: Back On!
