Kate

Wins the priv pri­vacy bat­tle for her kids

No. 1 Magazine - - FRONT PAGE -

Afew months ago, Will and Kate suf­fered a bit of a back­lash – some­thing the uni­ver­sally adored cou­ple are not used to. It all cen­tred around a let­ter writ­ten by their press of­fi­cer that threat­ened the me­dia and the pa­parazzi over what the cou­ple con­sid­ered to be the ha­rass­ment of lit­tle Prince Ge­orge af­ter pho­tog­ra­phers took unau­tho­rised pic­tures of the two-year-old. The let­ter also men­tioned that Will and Kate, “feel strongly that both Prince Ge­orge and Princess Char­lotte should not grow up ex­clu­sively be­hind palace gates and in walled gar­dens.” Shortly af­ter their plea was made pub­lic, cer­tain royal com­men­ta­tors claimed that the let­ter was poorly pre­sented and made the wealthy cou­ple sound as though they were throw­ing them­selves a ‘pity party’. Pop­u­lar web­site, The Daily Beast, claimed the let­ter was the wrong move if the cou­ple want to ap­pear down to earth, stat­ing, “If this is as bad as it gets, in re­turn for a tenbed­room house in Lon­don, a twelve bed­room house in Nor­folk, a blan­ket ex­emp­tion from in­her­i­tance tax and un­told mil­lions in pri­vate earn­ings from vast land­hold­ings across the UK, many peo­ple would ac­cept the deal.” But oth­ers stuck up for the royal yal cou­ple claim­ing that they are re­act­ing act­ing no dif­fer­ently to any other par­ent who feelsels as though their chil­dren’s safety and hap­pi­ness is be­ing put un­der threat. Whilst the de­bate raged on, the Duke and Duchess stayed d quiet on the sub­ject and there were no fur­ther re­ports of Prince ince Ge­orge be­ing stalked by pho­tog­ra­phers. How­ever, se­cu­rity and pri­vacy was still clearly a con­cern for the fam­ily as they have just been granted a ‘no-fly’ zone around their main res­i­dence at Am­ner Hall. This means that the pair should be able to en­joy even more pri­vacy at their home as pho­tog­ra­phers and news crewsews will not be able to fly he­li­copters over­head. It also means they should be safe from cam­eras at­tached to drones which is be­com­ing in­creas­ingly wor­ri­some for r those in the pub­lic eye. This news comes af­teraf re­ports that WillWi and Kate have been ex­ten­sively nsively ren­o­vat­in­gre their Am­ner Hall home, adding a £60,000 ten­nis court and rip­pin­gri out a fairly new £38,000 kitchen tchen to re­place it with one more to their lik­ing. They’ve also ren­o­vated a ‘glazed gar­den room’ which means they can en­joy views of the grounds ounds and night sky whilst they eat as a fam­ily – it’s no doubt rooms oms like this that they are try­ing to pro­tect from pry­ing eyes.

The roy­als fear Prince Ge­orge is be­ing ha­rassed.
