Mirror, Sun, Mail and Telegraph remove Beatrice pics

The Daily Telegraph, Daily Mirror, Daily Mail and The Sun have agreed to remove photographs taken of Princess Beatrice on holiday in the French Riviera from their websites.

The Princess complained to the Press Complaints Commission via her lawyers Harbottle & Lewis that the photos, which had been published in each of the newspapers, were taken in a location where she had a 'reasonable expectation of privacy".

All four denied the claim but nonetheless agreed to remove the pictures from their websites.

The PCC said: 'The newspapers did not accept that the complainant had a reasonable expectation of privacy in the locations in which she had been photographed.

'However, in view of her concerns, the newspapers all agreed to remove the photographs from their websites and give an assurance that they would not be republished. The complaints were resolved on this basis."

In May the News of the World, Daily Mail, Mail on Sunday and Daily Mirror published pictures of the bikini-clad Middleton sisters on the deck of a powerboat in Ibiza that were taken five years ago, prompting complaints against all four titles.

In April the PCC issued a warning to newspaper editors over alleged "harassment and pursuit" of the Middleton family by journalists.
