Leave Prince George Alone!

Prince George

Kate Middleton and Prince William are speaking out on behalf of their 2-year-old son, Prince George. The royal couple has royal concerns over his safety, specifically when and where paparazzi are involved. As we all know, paparazzi can be absolutely brutal and relentless in their pursuit of the perfect photograph, and usually, I don’t feel badly for celebs who complain about it, but in this case, my gears are grinded.  This is a child who didn’t ask to be a prince and didn’t ask for the attention. Sure, it’s to be expected, but one paparazzo went so far as to hide in the trunk of a car. That’s insane.

Here’s more, from Us Weekly:

“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,” a Kensington Palace spokesperson noted in a statement.

Like what?

“In recent months photographers have:

• photographed the children of private individuals visiting The Duke and Duchess’s home;

• pursued cars leaving family homes;

• used other children to draw Prince George into view around playgrounds;

• been found hiding on private property in fields and woodland locations around The Duke and Duchess’s home in Norfolk;

• obscured themselves in sand dunes on a rural beach to take photos of Prince George playing with his grandmother;

• placed locations near the Middleton family home in Berkshire under steady surveillance.”

Then there was the one dude who set up an entire photography studio in his car and hunkered out in there for days, across from a children’s play area, hoping to score a photo. This is the genius who hid in his trunk (or “boot”, if you will):

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.

Yeah, that’s just bonkers.

So what’s the solution? IDK, I’m asking you.

  • Well Prince George is absolutely adorable and I hope by 2050 he can cast out the foreign invaders, but anyhow yeah, it’s not his choice, but his parent’s choice where he hangs out. They have enough land to have him in a completely private area until he’s about 15 where this stuff simply wouldn’t happen. So they can use a bit of judgment.. He’s never ever ever gonna be like a “normal kid” unfortunately, but accommodations can be made so he lives a close to normal childhood. As he is completely adorable, once again.

    • Agree with you “Muttley”, the parents are responsible as well. They need to keep the children out of the reach of these idiots!

  • There used tobe a time where photos of famous people’s kids were off-limits, I think because of the Lindburgh baby, but no more. Sometimes the parents even encourage it, but I think it’s better they are kept out of the public eye.

  • you guys are nuts.

    prince william also didn’t ask to be prince, and considering how his mother passed i think it is absolutely absurd for you to act like the family is just another celebrity “asking for it”

    go to hell, the lot of you

  • the poor, poor Royals, where will they go except their thousands of privately owned estates across Britain? won’t somebody think of these people i didn’t choose for my head of states but whose plush lifestyle i keep funding through taxes??

  • He didn’t ask to be a prince but he will spent his entire life asking for nothing, and doing nothing to deserve it. Not only he owns more land and wealth than most of us can guess or even imagine, royals get free stuff all the time and then play the media to convince people they are “just like us” or that they are being harassed. Trust me being photographed is a very good trade off

  • Am I the only one who read the article? It’s not like they’re taking him to wander round Oxford Circus for the day and then complaining about him being photographed; the paparazzi were found “hiding in private property” and using long range lens to photograph him in children’s play areas. In what universe is it ok for grown adults to follow small children around and take pictures of them at a playground? It’s totally creepy and inappropriate, whether the child is famous or not.
