Prince Harry says it was “painful” to stumble upon cheering stories about his split from ex-girlfriend Chelsy Davy.
The Duke, who dated Davy non-stop for several years after meeting them in 2004, said the headlines seemed to be celebrating the news, rather than sympathizing.
“Going through it again now – ‘Hooray Harry was thrown’ was painful to say the least, said the exiled king, that this particular moment turned into a kind of laughable one.”
“The fact that the payments are referred to as Project Harry is very disturbing.”
“The level of surveillance I was putting up with was quite a thing,” he added.
Green, representing the Mirror Group Newspapers, then asked, “You’re not suggesting ‘Hooray Harry’ was a nod to celebrating being dumped, are you?”
“Again, whether or not it has been used before, for me, to be the object or victim of this, I consider the word used in this term to be offensive,” Harry told the court.
The article quotes that [Chelsy] I’m tired of his ‘hoarse lifestyle’ – he doesn’t celebrate the demise of your relationship,” Green told Harry.
“That sounds a bit mean,” replied the duke.
