Prince George is the subject of continued harassment by the paparazzi and their tactics are becoming increasingly dangerous, Kensington Palace has said.
The palace appealed to the world’s media to not publish photographs of the two-year-old prince gained through the use of telephoto lenses and in “unacceptable circumstances”.
It wants to “inform public discussion” on the photography of children.
A small number of publications in Germany, France, Australia, and New Zealand published unauthorised photographs of the prince, but the palace said that the “vast majority” of UK publications had refused to use the images.
In recent months, Kensington Palace said that photographers have used long range lenses to snap images of the Duchess and Prince George playing in private gardens, pursued cars carrying the children from family homes, and been found hiding on private property.
