LONDON (AP) - Jurors at Britain's phone hacking trial have been read intercepted messages left by Prince William on Kate Middleton's phone, in which he calls her "babykins" and jokes about almost being shot during a military training exercise.

The recordings from 2006 were found among the belongings of private investigator Glenn Mulcaire, who has been convicted of hacking the phones of aides to William and Prince Harry.

Three messages read out Thursday were left while William was attending Sandhurst military college. He and Kate married in 2011.

Seven people, including former News of the World editors Andy Coulson and Rebekah Brooks, are on trial on charges related to wrongdoing at the defunct Rupert Murdoch-owned newspaper.

Prosecutors said earlier in the trial that Middleton's name was on Mulcaire's list of phone hacking targets.
