Following the hack of Pippa Middleton’s iCloud account, British police are investigating the theft of her 3,000 photos, which also contained images of the Duchess of Cambridge and her children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
An anonymous seller offered the images from Kate Middleton’s sister’s iCloud account on WhatsApp to the Daily Mail and the Sun reporters. iCloud is used by Apple to store private photos from its smartphones and computers. The photos included those of the royal children, wedding dresses and parties. The newspapers confirmed they had been approached by someone under a pseudonym who asked for £50,000 within 2 days.
Scotland Yard was investigating the matter after receiving a report of the hack. So far, no arrests have been made and inquiries are ongoing. In the meantime, Pippa Middleton confirmed that not only had the lawyers been informed but the police were about to be involved as well.
Security specialists remind that the hack comes 2 years after a number of celebrities, including the Hollywood star Jennifer Lawrence, also had their iCloud accounts attacked. At the time, stolen images were subsequently posted online.
It is unclear whether Pippa Middleton, 33, had anything more interesting that the royal photos in her iCloud account. It is known that she is going to marry her financier boyfriend, James Matthews, next year, after dating him less than a year. Her sister and Prince William said they were a “wonderful couple”. James Matthews is the older brother of Spencer Matthew (known for the E4 reality show Made in Chelsea) and the CEO of Eden Rock Capital Management Group, named after a luxury resort his parents own in the Caribbean.
