Prince Harry has been told that there is "absolutely no way" he will be able to win his legal battles against the press

Prince Harry has been advised by experts that there is "absolutely no way" the Duke of Sussex will ever win his legal battle against the media.

Royal commentator and expert, Camilla Tominey, spoke to The Telegraph and said that Prince Harry should not be "planning a victory party" as he has "no chance" despite the royal being headstrong in "reforming" the press.

Dubbing the Duke an "avenger" she said that the Spare author's drive to pursue the press to no ends stemmed from his late mother Princess Diana's death, which was a consequence of a paparazzi car chase that ended in a fatal crash. 

 "Harry is a man on a mission to reform the press and feels it is his life’s purpose to do so. It’s very backward-looking trying to avenge the people he thinks caused his mother’s death."

"In the course of these legal actions, he has had to reveal quite a lot of personal information - in one of the witness statements he has talked about how he felt shut out of conversations about phone hacking in the Palace because William and others regarded him as a hot-head."

While she said that the Duke may feel as though he may be fighting for the greater good, his own family will not lend him support to his claims despite facing similar treatment at some point in their lives. 

"We get this situation where he feels like he is fighting for a higher prize, and it’s worth all of the repeated revelations about his nearest and dearest.

"But it’s highly unlikely that his nearest and dearest agree to that approach, because they all follow the late Queen’s mantra of ‘never complain, never explain’," she said.
