Paparazzi harassment of Prince George has increased in recent months and their tactics are becoming increasingly dangerous, Kensington Palace has announced.
The warning came as it appealed to world media to prevent the publication of unauthorised photographs of the two-year-old prince, the BBC reports.
It said some organisations had gone to “extreme lengths” to photograph the prince and “a line has been crossed.”
It wants to “inform public discussion” on the photography of children.
The palace said a small number of organisations, mostly in Germany, France, Australia, New Zealand and the United States had published photos in “unacceptable circumstances.”
However, it said the “vast majority”, and all United Kingdom publications, had refused.
Kensington Palace said in recent months, photographers have:
On multiple occasions used long range lenses to capture images of The Duchess playing with Prince George in a number of private parks.
Monitored the movements of Prince George and his nanny around London parks and monitored the movements of other household staff.
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.
