Media Beginning To Harass Middleton Family

The annoyances have begun. Kate Middleton's family has gotten in touch with the Press Complaints Commission over photographers who have been following Mrs. Middleton and Kate's sister Pippa as they have been out and about shopping (presumably for wedding events). The PCC noted that it has advised members of the media that while they may take photos of persons out in public areas, "'Journalists must not engage in intimidation, harassment or persistent pursuit.'" More coverage here from CBS, here from the BBC.
