Kate Middleton (aka the Duchess of Cambridge) and Prince William are slamming the paparazzi harassment of their son Prince George via an open letter from Kensington Palace.
“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have expressed their gratitude to British media organizations for their policy of not publishing unauthorized photos of their children,” Jason Knauf, the couple’s communications secretary, wrote in the letter. “This stance, guided not just by their wishes as parents, but by the standards and codes of the industry as it relates to all children, is to be applauded. They are pleased also that almost all reputable publications throughout the Commonwealth – in particular Australia, Canada, and New Zealand – and in other major media markets like the United States have adopted a similar position.”
“Despite this, paparazzi photographers are going to increasingly extreme lengths to observe and monitor Prince George‘s movements and covertly capture images of him to sell to the handful of international media titles still willing to pay for them,” the letter continued. “One recent incident – just last week – was disturbing, but not at all uncommon. A photographer rented a car and parked in a discreet location outside a children’s play area. Already concealed by darkened windows, he took the added step of hanging sheets inside the vehicle and created a hide stocked with food and drinks to get him through a full day of surveillance, waiting in hope to capture images of Prince George. Police discovered him lying down in the boot of the vehicle attempting to shoot photos with a long lens through a small gap in his hide.”
In accordance with our No Kids Policy, we have not and will not post unauthorized photos of the royal children, or other celebrity kids.
