A 35-year-old man has been arrested by police investigating claims that Pippa Middleton's iCloud account was hacked.
Scotland Yard said they arrested the man on Saturday evening at an address in Northamptonshire.
Pictures of the Duchess of Cambridge and her children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, are reportedly among the images stolen from Kate's sister.
Both the Sun and Daily Mail newspapers reported that an anonymous seller had offered the pictures to media organisations via encrypted messaging service WhatsApp.
The images offered reportedly include some of the royal children as well as wedding dresses and parties, with the seller wanting to sell in the US because of UK privacy laws.
The Sun said it had been approached by someone using a pseudonym and asking for £50,000 within 48 hours.
Specialist officers at Scotland Yard are investigating after receiving a report of hacking on Friday night.
