Kate Middleton & Prince William Ask For Privacy From the Media - Read Their Letter
Norfolk police handed out the letter to media after returning to Anmer Hall, their village home on the Queen’s Sandringham Estate. The royal family (Prince William, Duchess Kate, Prince George, and Princess Charlotte) have arrived back to Amner Hall after welcoming their daughter.
A palace spokesperson told the BBC that the letter was “handed to individuals found operating on or around the Sandringham estate. The warm-hearted and understandable interest in the Royal Family and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge needs to be balanced with their right to private family life—this is especially important for a family with very young children.”

As you are aware, Anmer Hall is part of the Sandringham Estate, which is a private estate and whilst in residence, members of the Royal Family and their guests have a more than reasonable expectation of privacy.
There have in the past been a number of intrusions into the privacy of the Royal Family, which in the main have been as a result of professional photographers using long distance lenses, not only to observe the Royal Family, but also to photograph them going about their activities on the Estate. Following warnings given to photographers and the photographic agencies involved, the position has greatly improved. However, we would remind you again of the position. The Sandringham Estate trusts that there will not be a need to take any further action other than bringing these points to your attention.
With the above matters in mind, we would reiterate the clear request for acts of harassment and breaches of privacy to cease.
Communications Secretary to TRH The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.”
