Pippa Middleton is headed to court.

E! News has learned Kate Middleton's sister is taking High Court action against a "person or persons unknown," filing as the claimant in the case listed, which is to be heard at the High Court in London on Wednesday.

The case is listed as "Middleton & anr v The Person or Persons Unknown" and gives no indication regardubg what it's about.

However, the filing comes just a couple days after a 35-year-old man suspected of hacking Pippa's iCloud account was freed on bail Sunday, police confirmed to NBC News.

The suspect, whose identity has not been released, reportedly contacted writers at the The Sun last week offering them access to 3,000 stolen photos for a minimum of 50,000 pounds ($65,000).

The hacker reportedly used the pseudonym "Crafty Cockney" on an encrypted messaging service and claimed to have photos of Pippa and her fiancé, James Matthews, as well as images of the Duchess of Cambridge with Princess Charlotte and Prince George.

London's Metropolitan Police arrested the suspect over the weekend in Northamptonshire (central England) on suspicion of a Computer Misuse Act offense, officials said in a statement obtained by NBC News. However, the suspect was released on bail Sunday and has been ordered to return to a London police station in late November.

Unfortunately, Pippa is not alone when it comes to royal hackings.

Starting on Christmas in 2005, Kate's phone was hacked 155 times, according to a testimony from the former News of the World royals editor Clive Goodman. The journalist—who spent time behind bars in 2007 for hacking into voicemail accounts of royal aides—told the court Prince William's phone was accessed 35 times and Prince Harry was hacked nine times.
