Facebook fury: Kate Middletons locked out of network

Sydney Morning Herald | April 25, 2011
When Middleton tried to log on to Facebook recently from her home, she saw that her account had been disabled by a security system in place to weed out imposters and fraudulent accounts.

After a certain amount of rigmarole, she convinced Facebook that she was legitimate and had her account reinstated with an apology.

Several other Kate Middletons reported similar experiences.

Facebook executives said some mistakes were inevitable as they tried to keep the social network secure.

Middleton has high hopes that this season of silliness will end once her famous namesake is actually married on April 29.

"Soon she'll be Princess Catherine or Princess Kate and I can just be plain old Kate Middleton again," she said.

"Fingers crossed. Otherwise I might cry."
