Private pictures of the Duchess of Cambridge and her two children are said to be included among the 3,000 images which were stolen from Pippa Middleton’s iCloud by hackers. The images were offered to publishers through WhatApp by an anonymous sender.

The Independent reports there are some images of Prince George and Princess Charlotte included as well as those from wedding parties and preparations. The seller wants to sell them in the US considering privacy laws in the UK.

The Royal family is known for being very private when it comes to their children’s lives. Almost nothing is revealed about how the two children go about their day to day lives except that the Duchess herself releases official photographs through Kensington Palace once in a while. The said theft comes almost two years after a notorious iCloud hacking incident which included dozens of celebrities which included Jennifer Lawrence and many others. The private images were shared widely on the internet across different platforms.

reports that Pippa Middleton is at the centre of a major security alert when a man offered to sell around 3,000 photos of her for £50,000. The pictures are said to be genuine and include very private moments of the 33-year-old sister of the Royal Duchess including one wherein she is fitting a wedding dress and naked ones of her fiancé James Matthews. Also included are private images of her sister and her two children, writes Daily Mail.

A box was said to be over the gown in one of the said dress-fitting pictures, which is reported to show Pippa smiling as her mother Carole takes pictures in the background with her camera phone. Another picture is said to show Carole in Pippa’s planned wedding venue while more is said to show Pippa and her friends partying.

Scotland Yard has already revealed that they are doing what they can to resolve this issue as they are investigating the case. The anonymous sellers and hackers call themselves “mas” and also “Craft Cockney” contacted different media organisations as they claim that they are in possession of around 3,000 private photos from Pippa’s iCloud account.
