An apology to Prince Harry & Cressida Bonas

On 14 February 2014 we published in the paper and online two photographs of Prince Harry and Cressida Bonas, taken by audience members and put up on social media whilst they were attending a performance at the Royal Albert Hall. We accept that the event was private and apologise to them both for publishing the photographs.
