London -  A journalist on trial in the phone hacking case says Princess Diana leaked him information, including a royal phone directory.

Former News of the World royal editor Clive Goodman said Thursday that Diana gave him the directory in 1992 during her feud with her estranged husband, Prince Charles.

He said Diana gave him details about Charles' household staff in an envelope delivered to the newspaper's offices.

The editor said Diana was going through a "very, very difficult time" and was looking for media allies who could help her in her very public battle with Charles.

Diana died in 1997.
