Pippa Middleton photographed hundreds of times a day

How many times is Pippa Middleton photographed per day? Lens shutters snap nearly every time she walks to work, buys coffee or runs errands.

The British tabloid Daily Mail receives at least 300 to 400 photographs of the royal sister-in-law each day, the paper’s photo editor Paul Silva told a journalism inquiry group.

“At the moment there are nine or 10 agencies outside her house [on any given day].,” Silva told the Leveson Inquiry Group. The group was established by Prime Minister David Cameron in July 2011 as a public inquiry into the culture, practices and ethics of the British press following the News of the World phone hacking scandal.

Silva said the British paper adopted a policy of not using photos of Middleton “when she is out and about doing her own thing.” There is “no reason, no justification,” for this onslaught, Silva said.

That doesn’t stop some blogs from cataloguing what Pippa does or wears on a near daily basis. We all love seeing photos of her adorable black mid-calf booties, fascinators and blazers, but how much is too much?

What do you think? Tell us in the comments below.
