A phone hacking scandal in the UK widens to include the Duchess of Cambridge. Notable British celebrities including ex-Prime Minister Tony Blair, Prince Edward and the Countess of Wessex are said to have also been victims of this elaborate crime. Kate's phone or bank account may have been hacked by private investigator's working for the News of the World. Several journalists and editors have already been arrested. London police have pooled their resources to investigate this matter thoroughly.
Prince William and Prince Harry have already been identified as alleged victims of the phone hackers for 'The News'. Stories were run using intercepted information from private telephone conversations. This is definitely a worrying trend. It must be quite upsetting for Kate thinking it's a possibility that a simple conversation she may have shared with her mother could have been intercepted. The media intrusion into Kate's life is frighteningly similar to those Princess Diana suffered. Hopefully police will bring this matter to a conclusion swiftly.
