Prince Harry has returned to the UK for a four-day hearing in his privacy case against the publisher of the Daily Mail.

The Duke of Sussex flew to London ahead of King Charles III's coronation on May 6.

The hearing will include claims of unlawful information gathering by Associated Newspapers Limited.

Harry is unlikely to meet with King Charles or his brother Prince William while in the country.

Royal expert Christine Ross believes Harry's low-key appearance at the hearing may be a portent of things to come and reduce unwanted press attention.

Elton John and Elizabeth Hurley accuse Associated Newspapers Limited of "gross breaches of privacy."

The company denies the allegations.

The hearing is expected to last four days.

Harry and Meghan have yet to announce whether they will attend King Charles III's coronation.
