British court hears Will and Kate phone messages

LONDON — Intercepted voice mail messages made by Prince William on the phone of his then-girlfriend — now wife — Kate Middleton, the duchess of Cambridge, have been read out to a British jury as part of a high-profile phone-hacking trial.

According to reporters at the trial, in one message Prince William refers to Middleton as "babyskins." In another, he jokes that he was almost shot — with blanks — while taking part in a military training exercise.

"Hi baby. Um, sorry, I've got back in off my night navigation exercise," the court heard William say in a message that was allegedly intercepted, according to reports from BBC journalists and others inside the courtroom.

The messages were made while William was enrolled at Sandhurst military college.

Ex-News of the World editors Andy Coulson and Rebekah Brooks are among those standing trial.
