Clauses Noted: 3, 4

Ms Pippa Middleton complained to the Press Complaints Commission through Harbottle & Lewis LLP that the newspaper had published a photograph of her sunbathing on a boat, taken five years previously, in a place where she had a reasonable expectation of privacy. The complainant's solicitors also alleged that the photographs had been obtained after the boat had been followed.
The newspaper said that the set of photographs from which the photograph had been taken had been published on numerous occasions since 2006 without complaint. It also said that the boat had not been followed, arguing that the complainant did not have a reasonable expectation of privacy at the location in which the boat was situated. Nonetheless, the complaint was resolved when the newspaper removed the photograph from its website and agreed not to republish it.
