Ever wonder what the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge call each other in private? Apparently so did the News of the World, the disgraced former British tabloid, currently in the midst of a major lawsuit in which it is accused of hacking the phones of several prominent leaders and personalities, including Kate Middleton and Prince Harry.
On Dec. 19, Middleton's private messages from Prince William, her then-boyfriend, in 2006 were played in the court room.
"Babykins, just tried ringing you, hope you're alright," William said in one message.
This is the first time it's been confirmed that Middleton's phone was hacked by News of the World. Another message reveals he nearly got shot during his officer training at Sandhurst in 2006.
"Hi baby. Um, sorry, I've just got back off my night navigation exercise," he said in a new message. "I've been running around the woods of Aldershot chasing shadows and getting horribly 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 have been very embarrassing, though."
Another message was played from the voicemail of Prince Harry, left by an unnamed male using a high-pitched voice to impersonate Harry's ex-girlfriend Chelsy Davy.
"You are the best looking ginger I have ever seen!" the voice, thought to be Prince William, said. "It's lovely out here in Africa and hopefully I'll see you very soon you big, hairy, fat ginger."
