Kate Middleton & Prince William Ask For Privacy From the Media - Read Their Letter

Kate Middleton and Prince William have written a letter to photographers requesting privacy during this time.

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.”

“Dear Sir/Madam,

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.”

    Ridiculous. What do they expect ? They have a much-guarded home in the country. How much photographing can go on ? But why treat the public with such scorn ? “Royals” are public figures. To have the gall to actually say “leave us alone” is on the level of DRAMA QUEEN behavior.

    Charles and Diana realized they were both private AND public people. They realized their sons needed a bond with the public, they knew the public expected that. If you look for videos and photos, you’ll find a huge amount of them taken during William and Harry’s childhood. Many were done right at , sometimes inside of their country home, “Highgrove”. You can still find the photos and videos.

    William and Waity Kate are acting as if they’re private citizens. It’s insulting to the UK public. They have all the security you can imagine, so what’s the problem with photos and interviews ? People in the UK hardly recognize George, he’s so seldom seen.
    William and Kate need to step aside. Harry should be put in their place in line for the “throne”…..or else there might not be a throne. Willy and Waity will help end the monarchy with their snotty,immature behavior.

    I think they are right let them have their privacy :)

    yes, prince harry is more qualified to be given the throne. more intelligent and has done more project than his brother. And really easily gets along with people.

    Right – William upset a lot of people by not speaking to anyone as they left the hospital, and is content to live his fantasy life hidden away in the country. Harry is more like Diana. He’s got the power and the charm, and I think he is sweet too.

    Yeah….let them get out of line for the throne too,
