Royal Palace Tells Paparazzi To Leave Prince George Alone


The Royals are a hot commodity, but it’s getting dangerous for little George who seems to have gained popularity recently. Kensignton Palace released a statement, “In recent months, there have been an increasing number of incidents of paparazzi harassment of Prince George. And the tactics being used are increasingly dangerous. This letter is being published now to inform the public discussion around the unauthorised photography of children. It is hoped that those who pay paparazzi photographers for their images of children will be able to better understand the distressing activity around a two-year old boy that their money is fuelling. We also feel that the readers who enjoy the publications that fuel this market for the unauthorised photos deserve to understand the tactics deployed to obtain these photos.”

“The vast majority of publications around the world – and all British publications – have refused to fuel the market for such photos. This is an important and laudable stance for which The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are hugely grateful. They have enjoyed sharing an increasing number of photos of their children and look forward to continuing to take them to more public events as they get older.”

The Palace graciously asks for publications not to buy photos of the tot to give him a private and safe childhood. “It is clear that while paparazzi are always keen to capture images of any senior member of the royal family, Prince George is currently their No. 1 target. We have made the decision to discuss these issues now as the incidents are becoming more frequent and the tactics more alarming. A line has been crossed and any further escalation in tactics would represent a very real security risk.”
