The Royal Family have today been forced to tell a persistent photographer to “cease harassing” Prince George and his nanny. It has even been alleged that Kate Middleton, Prince William and The Queen are actually petrified that the member of the paparazzi is stalking the baby Prince.
According to Celeb Dirty Laundry, Prince William and the Duchess Of Cambridge are so concerned by the constant haranguing from a particular photographer that they have likened it to stalking. Legal action has even been threatened against the unnamed assailant, who it believes has followed Prince George and his nanny to the park while it is believed that they have apparently memorized his daily routine too.
Meanwhile, because of the actions of this photographer, Buckingham Palace have been forced to issue a statement on the matter.
“The individual was spotted at a central London Park in the vicinity of Prince George, who was removed from the Park immediately. There is reason to suspect that the individual may have been placing Prince George under surveillance and monitoring his daily routines for a period of time. Just like any parent, The Duke and Duchess want Prince George to have the freedom to safely experience normal childhood activities, like going to the park and playing with other children, without the threat of harassment or being placed under surveillance. He has already been spoken to by protection officers about his behaviour in respect of Members of the Royal Family on previous occasions over a number of years.”
According to the BBC, Prince William and his wife, who is currently pregnant and still trying to overcome a serious bout of morning sickness, aren’t set to begin legal proceedings just yet, and this public action has been taken to try and reduce his attempts to snap Prince George, which they believe are currently tantamount to stalking.
The BBC‘s royal correspondent, Nicholas Withchell, even declared, “If they do not receive these assurances that this behavior will stop, they will then consider options of legal action.”
The Palace’s statement did add, “The Duke and Duchess understand the particular public role that Prince George will one day inherit but while he is young, he must be permitted to lead as ordinary a life as possible.”
Back in March, Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo was named as the Prince’s nanny, and when she was appointed the palace made a public appeal for the duo’s privacy to be respected.
