Court ban over Pippa’s hacked iCloud pictures


PIPPA Middleton was yesterday granted a High Court order banning the publicatio­n of thousands of photograph­s stolen from her iCloud account.

Lawyers for the Duchess of Cambridge’s sister, pictured, said she had suffered ‘considerab­le distress’ after her account was hacked and 3,000 photograph­s were offered for sale to a newspaper.

The photos are believed to include pictures of Miss Middleton, 33, at a wedding dress fitting ahead of her forthcomin­g marriage to banker James Matthews, 41.

They could also include family photograph­s of her sister Kate and her children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

The High Court heard that Miss Middleton’s iCloud account contained other private informatio­n which she feared could also have been taken by the hacker. That could include messages, emails and contact details for her family and friends, and for members of the Royal Family.

High Court judge Mrs Justice Whipple said Miss Middleton had suffered ‘an appalling intrusion’, and she granted an injunction banning the publicatio­n of any pictures or informatio­n hacked from the account.
