Complainant Name:
Ms Pippa Middleton

Clauses Noted: 4

Publication: The Daily Telegraph


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.


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.
