Prince William files press complaint
Prince William's privacy is at issue again
Prince William has made a formal complaint to the Press Complaints Commission over a supplement about him in the Mail on Sunday newspaper.
It includes details of aides apparently vetting Prince William's friends before invitations to tea, a fact that has been described by one official as "inaccurate and grossly intrusive".
After the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, newspapers were warned to respect the privacy of the Prince, who is at school at Eton.
The commission's code on privacy was subsequently extended to cover children at school, a move designed to give the Prince further protection.
The commission has previously upheld a complaint by Prince Edward over the publication of a photograph of him kissing his girlfriend.
Our correspondent says this is a warning shot to the press not to go too far. He says that it may not get to formal proceedings if an apology can be arranged.
