The neverending phone-hacking trial is the gift that keeps on giving. When we’re not hearing about Prince William’s “babykins” pet name for then-Kate Middleton, we’re hearing about how Sienna Miller totally banged Daniel Craig in 2005. And now this gem, which… I honestly think we’ve all assumed, but it’s interesting to get a confirmation. A former News of the World reporter said in open court that Prince Harry used to drunk-dial Chelsy Davy a lot in 2006. HA.
The phone hacking trial in London today heard that Prince Harry would make drunken phone calls to his then girlfriend, Chelsy Davy during ‘piss-ups’ with his army colleagues.
In an email sent in March 2006 and read to the court today, former News of the World royal correspondent Clive Goodman said “She gets calls from him and he’s completely not in a good condition… piss ups”.
He would apparently ‘shout affections to her down the phone,’ Goodman added.
There was also a rehashing of evidence of a prank call by William, where he put on a female voice and left a message for Harry saying: “Hi it’s Chelsy here. You’re the best looking ginger I’ve ever seen…. You big hairy fat ginger.”
The message came from a transcript of micro-cassettes recovered from private investigator Gleen Mulcaire’s home.
We’ve heard about William’s “prank calls” to Harry before, I’m pretty sure. And last year, we heard about how Chelsy Davy “blitzed” Harry with phone calls and texts while he was studying and training at Sandhurst, circa 2005. So, Chelsy and Harry had a lot of passion back in the day. We knew that already! But at least it went both ways. She blitzed him with calls and texts and he was always drunk-dialing her and boisterously telling her how much he loved her. Aw.
There were more revelations about Harry in court yesterday – apparently, at the 2005 wedding of Tom Parker Bowles (son of Camilla), Harry reportedly told someone at the wedding that he would have rather been attending Katie Price/Jordan and Peter Andre’s wedding, which was taking place on the same day. His exact words, according to a lip-reader employed by NOTW, when asked about how he felt about Tom’s wedding: “To be honest, I’d rather be at Jordan’s.” Funny.
