A British judge has barred the publication of stolen photographs belonging to Pippa Middleton.

Middleton, who is the younger sister of Britain’s Duchess of Cambridge, won a court exhortation Wednesday banning the publication of some 3,000 photos that were allegedly stolen from her iCloud account in a "hack attack," Reuters reported.

London police have arrested website designer Nathan Wyatt, 35, on suspicion of a Computer Misuse Act offense related to the case.

High Court Justice Philippa Whipple ordered the ban against the publication of the photos after Middleton and her fiance James Matthews took the case to court in the aftermath of the hack.

According to Fox News, approximately 3,000 personal images were taken from Middleton’s iCloud account, and Whipple said the duchess' sister also feared “other private information beyond photographs” was taken as well.

The judge stated Middleton “has good reason to fear that all the information held in her iCloud account has been accessed.”

The Sun reported Saturday that an alleged hacker had reached out to the newspaper asking for $65,000 for the photos. The seller sent sample photos to the newspaper that showed Middleton being fitted for a wedding dress in preparation for her wedding, which is set for next year.

The hacker also claimed to have pictures of Middleton’s sister Kate and her children, Princess Charlotte and Prince George. The suspect even alluded to having naked images of fiance Matthews.

Since being arrested, Wyatt has been released on bail and has been ordered to return to a south London police station in November.

“The evidence points toward this having been a flagrant and dishonest act, which has caused the claimant some considerable distress,” said Middleton's lawyer Adam Wolanski, according to Reuters.
