I think it's to do with the level of personal detail the phone hacking heard; I guess it relates to the sentencing perhaps. Also, the amount of news stories they got from the phone hacking.

Prince William called Duchess of Cambridge 'babykins' while they were dating and was nearly shot during training exercise, hacking trial hears | Mail Online

The DailyMail over exaggerates, William was nearly shot by blanks, in a training accident 7 years ago.

I had been wondering how on earth members of the media and fellow online royal watchers knew William called Catherine "Babykins."?

William's phone and voicemail messages were hacked, if you read the DailyMail article they provided word for word what William said to Kate in messages or on the phone. There's also conversations with his brother.

Victims of phone hacking (not just royals but also of kidnapped and murdered children) are victims once more. There is something really wrong here as private calls are made public.

Yes, Cepe - it bothers one that they are being MORE victimized as all this info that was not printed comes out at the trial.

It is an incredible invasion of privacy. It must have been awful to read articles with all that private information and wonder which one of their friends were talking to the media. How could they trust anyone?

However, the most outrageous stunt was the Missy Dowler case. I can't even imagine how the hackers justified that to themselves--they gave the family false hope and interfered with a police investigation. Despicable.

I agree so much. In Twitter today, people were saying it was ok because the William messages were "cute". Boy, did they miss the point.
