Police investigating claims that the Duchess of Cambridge’s sister Pippa Middleton’s iCloud account was hacked have arrested a 35-year-old man.
The Sun reported about 3,000 photographs were stolen and that it was offered images by someone who contacted it asking for £50,000 within 48 hours.
It said the images included shots of the duchess’s children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
Scotland Yard said a man had been arrested in Northamptonshire.
Police said the man had been arrested on suspicion of a Computer Misuse Act offence and had been taken into custody at a south London police station.
The haul from the alleged hack was reportedly offered for sale to the newspaper via encrypted messaging service WhatsApp.
Earlier on Saturday, a Met Police spokesman said specialist officers were investigating the claim.
In the summer, Miss Middleton and hedge fund manager James Matthews confirmed their engagement, with a wedding planned for next year.
