A private investigator who focused on Prince Harry’s ex-girlfriend Chelsy Davy has apologised for his behaviour while branding the press “ruthless” as they searched for headlines.

Gavin Burrows has made an apology to the Duke of Sussex and Ms Davy for targeting her while the pair were dating from 2004 to 2009.

He claims Ms Davy was subject to voicemail hacking and her communications were under surveillance while the couple were together.

Speaking to the BBC, Mr Burrows said: “There was a lot of voicemail hacking going on.

"There was a lot of surveillance work on her phones. There was surveillance work on her comms.”

He continued to reveal that Ms Davy would “brag to her friends” when she was going to see Prince Harry.

Mr Burrows also branded the press as “ruthless” in their behaviour to find headlines on Prince Harry, due to his presence on the frontpage selling better than Prince William.

Editors told him that Prince Harry, who later married Meghan Markle, was being labelled the 'new Diana’.

He claims Ms Davy’s medical records, ex-boyfriends and education were all areas that were an interest.

Mr Burrows says he would carry out private investigator work for the News of The World and The Sun on the royal and his girlfriend at the time.

He revealed the information while talking in the new BBC2 documentary, The Princes and the Press, which aired on Monday night.
