Former News of the World Editor Andy Coulson authorised payments of £500 a week to monitor the phones of people close to Princes William and Harry, the Old Bailey has heard.

Mr Coulson, who is one of a further six on trial, denies conspiracy to hack phones and conspiracy to commit misconduct in public office.
