Given that, I [like Pranter] am amazed his relationship with the press is as functional as it is !
I completely agree with you. I'd also add that the press only gives the public what it wants, and is therefore merely an arm of the public. I think Will and Harry realize this. This is why I am beginning to realize we won't seem much of Will, Kate or their minor children much at all, whether he is not the heir, the heir, or the king.

IMHO William and Kate will follow the predictable patterns that most royals have with their children: newborn photo, christening photo, older infant, 1st birthday, 18 mo., new sibling, annual photo sessions, and first days of school.

He's always seemed much more reserved and thoughtful...less prone to rash actions (outside those typical of boys/teens). He's more of a thinker like Charles. I think he's probably a bit more sensitive than he actually appears.

I appreciate that Dman ensures that we see a variety of articles on the royal family, but I wish I hadn't clicked on the link about Catherine taking George to the park. I think one of the main reasons William and Catherine have decided to move their primary residence away from London is so that they can take their child outside of their private gardens without making the news.

"Touching tribute to Diana ". Its this sort of nauseating pap that turns people off. Its the nearest playground to KP, and I would guess that it wasn't a tribute.

And I agree with US Royal Watcher- they want to escape this attention.

Yeah I'd be neurotic as well. William is probably award that if you give them an inch they will take a mile, he doesn't like photographers but he is dealing with them. What more can we ask.
Let's also not forget that William and Kate, along with many of their family and friends, had their phones hacked on literally hundreds of occasions to get information on them. This went on for years and was an open secret among the press. Thanks to William's figuring out what was going on, such disgusting law-breaking was brought into the public and several journalists are now serving lengthy jail terms as a result.

The press was also paying police officers, army officers and royal staff members large amounts of cash for personal and private information about them

Oh, and the fact that they tapped, recorded and published Charles's personal phone calls for their own titillation.

By any standard, William has every reason to be wary with the press.

William and Catherine have always been a quiet couple, preferring nights at home or with small circle of friends. Except for some brief periods of time, neither were big nightclub partiers.
would you prefer less media photos since they spend time at home or more photos showing them drunk leaving night clubs and such?

Yes, very creepy, and with an inexplicable resemblance to Sheldon Cooper.

Nasty looking thing - and if you read the small-print the object will not even look like the picture as it is an artist's impression!

It sounds very sarcastic IMO

I think the meaning is: she has time to go shopping a lot but not to work for her charities
