A former British tabloid editor admitted to hacking Kate Middleton’s phone a whopping 155 times on Wednesday.
Clive Goodman, who served as a royal editor at the now-defunct News of the World said he also intercepted Prince William and Prince Harry’s calls dozens of times while on the witness stand on Wednesday, The Associated Press reports. He began targeting Middleton around 2005, when she and Prince William began getting more serious.
“I have been as open and honest about hacking about hacking as I can be, but nobody has asked me any questions about this before,” Goodman said.
Goodman, who has been charged with conspiring to pay for royal phone information, was jailed in 2007 for eavesdropping on royal aides’ phone calls. He is now among several former News of the World employees on trial for phone hacking and other misdeeds while at tabloid.
