Complainant Name:
Ms Pippa Middleton

Clauses Noted: 4

Publication: The Daily Telegraph

Complaint:

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

Resolution:

While the newspaper disputed that the complainant had been harassed when the photograph, 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 if she had felt harassed in the taking of the photograph; an advisory note was placed in its picture library to ensure that the image was not reused; and the newspaper gave an assurance in regard to future photographs of the complainant.
