Complainant Name:
Lord & Lady Cholmondeley

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sunday Telegraph

Complaint:

Lord & Lady Cholmondeley complained to the Press Complaints Commission that a diary item was inaccurate when it stated that - after having twins delivered by Caesarean section - the identity of their heir would be determined by weight.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the publication of the following correction:

In an article of 8 November it was reported that Lord and Lady Cholmondeley, who recently had twins delivered by Caesarean section, had decided that the identity of their heir would be determined by weight. However, as published on the 13 December, we are happy to reiterate that the heir was identified by the order of birth and the medical records at the hospital. We regret any distress caused to Lord and Lady Cholmondeley.
