A judge also dismissed the Duke of Sussex’s claim that there was a “secret agreement” between Buckingham Palace and the press, calling the alleged arrangement implausible, according to the Daily Mail.
In his ruling, the judge said Harry’s case had “not reached the necessary threshold of plausibility and cogency.”
The Sun’s publisher celebrated the ruling as “a significant victory.”
Harry still has the right to continue suing the newspaper for using other alleged illegal activities to procure information about him and his family.
A trial over the matter will begin in January barring any settlement reached ahead of time.
Harry, 38, sued claiming the tabloids had hacked his phone to obtain his voicemails between 1996 and 2011.
