Ms Pippa Middleton complained to the Press Complaints Commission through Harbottle & Lewis solicitors of London that photographs of her which had been published by the newspaper had been taken in circumstances of harassment.


While the newspaper disputed that the complainant had been harassed when the photographs, which had been obtained from a freelance agency, had been taken, the complaint was resolved after PCC negotiation in the following manner: the newspaper apologised to the complainant for any unintentional distress caused; the photographs were removed from the newspaper's website, and from its archive; and the newspaper gave an assurance in regard to future photographs of the complainant.
