Kate Middleton & Prince William Take Legal Action, Accuse Photographer of Harassing Prince George

Prince William and Kate Middleton are taking legal action to keep their son Prince George, 1, safe from an aggressive photographer.

“The Duke and Duchess have taken legal steps to ask that an individual ceases harassing and following both Prince George and his nanny as they go about their ordinary daily lives,” Buckingham Palace spokesman James Roscoe said in a statement (via the Today show).

“The Duke and Duchess understand the particular public role that Prince George will one day inherit but while he is young, he must be permitted to lead as ordinary a life as possible,” the statement continued. “No parent would tolerate the suspicion of someone pursuing and harassing their child and carer whilst their child is playing in a public park or going about their daily activities.”

    what a spoiled brat Bill is

    These two royals are a pain in the a$$. This is what they deserve when they pimp out their baby to the media circus. The little spoiled brat even has his own PR agent. WTF? The royals are just another version of the Kardashians except their media goal is to play it looking like they have more class. Bahahaha!

    Not a royalist, but HELL TO EFFIN NO, to your comparison.
    The Royal family can trace back to Elizabeth the 1st QUEEN of England.
    The Kardashian are a white trash family comprised by a large assed fame w*ore who got famous thanks to a s*x tape.

    They just need to accept the fact that their son isn’t a normal kid. When your future has been decided for you like in this case; your life is going to be different. Might as well he starts getting used to the paps now then getting overwhelmed when he’s older. Yeah I get they’re his parents and want to protect him but he’s not a normal baby! He’s a prince and no matter how ‘normal’ they want his childhood to be at the end of the day he’s still a public figure.

    @Annabelle: even if he is not a “normal” child he must have all children’s right. If a photographer followed around a baby taking picture of him wouldn’t it be normal to take legal steps against him?

  • truth

    @Morgana:

    Just because George was born into a Royal family does not mean at the tender age of 1 year old that he should be stalked and have possible harm come to him because of the ruthlessness of these papps. Prince William & Kate have EVERY right and responsibility to protect their chid!

    This “he might as well get used to it now” & the comparison to the TRASH FAMEWHORE kardashians (Kim & Kayne,etc) who pimp out their kids to the media are RIDICULOUS !!!!! .

    I say good for you Prince William ! I’m sure his mum, Princess Diana would be very proud of him.

  • wow

    @Morgana:

    AMEN ! SO TRUE!

  • truth

    @Morgana:

    My comments were not meant for you but in general to the commenters here – I actually agree with you.

  • i agree

    The parents are right. Not only that the individual following the young kid with his nanny but harassing. When prince George is with his nanny, he’s not with his parents to protect him. The future prince needs to be protected.

    This so-called pap could be a pedophile pervert. Who wants some random person, taking pictures of their baby, while he is playing in a park, public figure or no public figure. At his age, he doesn’t know what is going on. P. Kate is sick and Prince William is away at work. Come on now.

  • remember da truth

    I can’t believe there are actually people on here who think it’s okay for ANYONE to follow around a 1-year-old and bother him IN ANY WAY, or FOR ANY REASON!!

    It doesn’t matter who he is, or what his role in life is to be one day AS AN ADULT…. This is a BABY!!

    For God’s sake…. It’s a shame that there are people so obsessed with the lives of celebrities that they think they “deserve” the attention of paparazzi and stalking, just because their profession makes you know who they are and what they do for a living is seen by the public.

    Celebrities owe us NOTHING but to do their work to the best of their ability. And certainly children should be off-limits to the insatiable desires of sick people who can’t live their own lives so they are feeding off the lives of successful people.

  • Ivermom

    Agree! They should not be stalking the nanny for pics. Taking a few pics when his is with his parents is different.

  • haha

    he’s a prince so whatever poor people deal with worse things than this so get over it
