(AP) British prosecutors say that a senior editor at Rupert Murdoch's tabloid The Sun is being charged with consipiring to pay 23,000 pounds (roughly $35,000) in bribes in return for tips about the royal family.

Britain's Crown Prosecution Service said Wednesday that The Sun's Chief Royal Correspondent Duncan Larcombe conspired with employees of Sandhurst Britain's prestigious military academy to secure royal gossip. The statement does not go into detail, but Princes William and Harry both trained at Sandhurst several years ago.

Larcombe is one of a growing number of senior Sun staff who have been charged in bribery cases linked to Britain's sprawling phone hacking scandal since it exploded in 2011.
