The Duchess of Cambridge is notoriously private, especially when it comes to the children, so she releases official photographs via Kensington Palace.

The alleged theft comes two years after the mammoth icloud leak that put Hollywood actress Jennifer Lawrence, among others, at the heart of a cyber attack which resulted in nude photos being published.
