1. Megan White is the fiancée of the famous aristocrat, Harry Red. She is 28 years old, beautiful and glamorous. She has always been tolerant of the paparazzi taking pictures of her and Harry at public events or generally in public. Recently, as she has started to organize their wedding, which she wants to be an intimate and private affair, Megan has found the media attention intrusive. On several occasions she has had heated arguments with photographers wanting to photograph her. Recently, Cutis, a photographer for Further Magazine took a topless picture of her (using a long-range lens) whilst trying on her wedding dress inside a small London bridal boutique. The magazine has teased its readers that it is soon to publish pictures of ‘glamorous Megan’ looking as never seen before!
For their wedding ceremony, the press has been excluded and everyone present was asked to refrain from taking pictures. However, one of the caterers secretly takes pictures of the ceremony, which he sells to the well-known celebrity gossip magazine, Trash and these were published in the following week’s issue as an ‘exclusive.’
Discuss the legal actions that Megan and Harry might be able to pursue against the magazines and what remedy may be available to them.
