Kate Middleton, the 25-year-old girlfriend of Prince William, had made a formal complaint of harassment against The Daily Mirror to the Press Complaints Commission (P.C.C.).
Richard Wallace, the editor of the newspaper â€œThe Daily Mirrorâ€ revealed, “On Thursday we published an innocuous picture of Ms. Middleton walking down the street with a cup of coffee.â€œ He explained, “It was taken by a freelance photographer in circumstances where we were later told she felt harassed.â€ He added, “We got it wrong and we sincerely regret that.”
The newspaper published a photograph, which showed Kate Middleton is walking to work, holding a cup and her car keys.
According to her statement in P.C.C., Kate Middleton assumed that the photograph in The Daily Mirror was “obtained as a result of harassment in breach of Clause 4 (Harassment) of the Code of Practice”. The clause indicates, “journalists must not engage in intimidation, harassment or persistent pursuit”. P.C.C. is still in the process of investigating her complaint.
