Totally agree with KittyAtlanta. When People and other news outlets pleased not to publish unauthorized pics of celebrity's kids, I gained a lot more respect for them and will buy them in much greater number. I hope that outlets will agree to a similar rule with the Prince when he is not on duty with his parents.

Very true, everyone can't wait for new pictures of George. I just don't want the kid followed around and at risk in order to get those pictures. I would like to see the Cambridge's out and about as a family though.

Yes I obviously agrre that George should not be put in danger or frightened by the stalking... Hope the warning will work and that the paparazzi will make a step back

I don't think this can be compared. The media attitude and climate was very different 30+ years ago.

i'd assume that george, like any other baby, has a very set routine on when he sleeps, eats, and goes out. since kensington park is next door, if they wait around the area they frequent in the park for a week, it's very probable they will bump into him and his nanny. otherwise, with things like twitter today paps can know where their subjects are fairly painlessly.

I don't think it's unreasonable for a royal (or famous person) to expect they can walk about in a park without someone snapping pics. If they are on the job that's different.

If you were in a public park and you saw a royal person who was not on an official outing, and you had means, would you snap a photo? Of course you would, so would I. If you say you wouldn't, I doubt you.

You can doubt me all you want...but no I wouldn't. I have no interest in having pics of famous people in my house. We don't have royalty here...my interest in royals is more about the history of the families not just because they are famous. It's neat to follow their lives to a point...but from a distance.

There are some famous (hollywood type) people from near where I live...when they come home to see family etc...people here don't bother them. They go about town and eat etc...very few people are brazen enough to interrupt them.

But are you selling that photo to the world or are you keeping it and showing your friends back home your royal photo?

I was at KP in July 2012. I took a photo a black cocker spaniel tied to a bench in the gardens right outside the palace. I took its picture and told my friends it was Lupo. I don't think it was because WK were at the Thistle Service in Scotland that day. I didn't sell it to the tabloids for some abandon dog story.

I am also one that would not take a picture. I would certainly smile to myself that I've seen them but would respect their privacy to be out and about without being hounded to death or a camera or cell phone aimed at them. I just feel that this is rude. With anyone famous, anyone that would interrupt a meal or an outing because they know who the person is, does not stop to consider that they themselves probably wouldn't care for it much if they were constantly bombarded by strangers.

There is really nothing special in "seeing" or "spotting" someone familiar to you in my book.

Also, well known people really don't like fans to go crazy and snap tons of pictures of them. Seriously, if I saw the Cambridge family in the park or any other off duty and private outing, I would offer a warm smile and perhaps wave but I wouldn't go over and disturb them or hold a camera up and start snapping.

I went nuts over a famous TV actor I accidentally came across years ago. He ran and I felt really bad afterwards. The idea is to remain cool, calm and collective.

I genuinely would not take their photo. I have a cousin who is a member of a band that isn't huge, but is big enough that he gets recognised around Canada and parts of the US. I can't remember the last time we went out to a family dinner with him without it being interrupted by a small stream of people wanting to take photos with him or get his autograph. When we know he will be attending, we have to request a private room at whatever restaurant we're meeting at. People need to be able to just relax and be left alone sometimes without being confined to a private place - especially those in a public role. There's on duty and there's off duty... and people need to respect that.

Well, I have to be honest and say that I would definitely try to snap a photo. No ifs, ands or buts. It is just human nature. I wouldn't approach the person/people, but I sure would try to get a pic.

I might take a photo of someone but not with someone and I probably would not want that person to know about it. If you want to brag at home about whatever kind of famous person you saw it would be nice to have some proof.

I'm with you, Kitty. Taking a photo does not necessarily involve approaching the person and interrupting them and sticking the camera in their face, which some people seem to be assuming it does.

That's fair enough. I imagine many people would try to take a photo without them knowing but wouldn't actually approach them. I think if it wasn't for my cousin, I'd probably be the same way.

It will be great for Catherine to get well enough for her and William to return to official duties again. Miss seeing them out and about on official engagements.

I live in SoCal so it's not uncommon to see famous figures. If they're on their private time, I wouldn't approach them.

A forlorn hope on the part of the MCC.. To my knowledge neither of them has ever shown even the remotest interest in our National game !
