The phone hacking trial in London today heard that Prince Harry would make drunken phone calls to his then girlfriend, Chelsy Davy during 'piss-ups' with his army colleagues.

In an email sent in March 2006 and read to the court today, former News of the World royal correspondent Clive Goodman said "She gets calls from him and he's completely not in a good condition... piss ups".

He would apparently 'shout affections to her down the phone,' Goodman added.

There was also a rehashing of evidence of a prank call by William, where he put on a female voice and left a message for Harry saying: "Hi it's Chelsy here. You're the best looking ginger I've ever seen.... You big hairy fat ginger."

The message came from a transcript of micro-cassettes recovered from private investigator Gleen Mulcaire's home.
