Britain's phone-hacking scandal has entered a strange phase.

During the trial of journalists accused of illegally listening into private conversations over the cell phones of the royal family, the court is playing voicemails that were allegedly hacked into.

This has afforded the opportunity to make what they had to say public knowledge.

Surprisingly, what the court has revealed so far seems to be pretty innocent – adorable, even.

For example:

Prince William calls Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge "babykins." Or, at least, he did in 2006 when the two were dating.

Prince William also likes to prank-call Prince Harry, sometimes pretending to be his girlfriend. According to court documents, the future King of England allegedly once put on "a falsetto voice" meant to be that of Chelsy Davy, whom Harry dated from 2005 to 2010. In the transcript of the call read in court, Prince William then allegedly called his younger brother "the best looking ginger" in the world.
