I have not seen the photos but if they are from a distance then they are not
paparazzi pictures.

There is a big difference.

Paparazzi pictures are when the photographer is in their face and within inches.

These photographs and others were probably taken from more than 100 feet away.

They are absolutely, 100% paparazzi photos. A paparazzo (which is the singular form of paparazzi) is simply a photographer, usually freelance, who specializes in taking candid photos of celebrities (and you don't have to take my word for it - just check a dictionary). Distance of the photographer from the subject does not make any difference. For example, long-lens, blurry photos of royals or celebrities are paparazzi pictures. Also, paparazzi photos can be prearranged. A photographer needn't be in someone's face at all for it to be a paparazzi photo.

A paparazzi by definition is someone who is freelance and takes candid pics of celebs/people. So their distance from their subject has no bearing IMO. But hey we all have diff definitions. I also think this is a slippery slope. But hey as long as they aren't harrased or hounded.

The photos are in the upcoming edition of German People, it's just a photograph of the television ad showing the pics that someone has posted on Instagram so far:

Thanks for posting the photos JessRulz.

It looks like the Duchess and PG were at Snettisham Park again.

Same slide and wooden climbing house in the background, and the toy tractor that the Oz magazine that published the photos taken there before, reported on.

I see your point it is a little strange, but normal people don't have nannies who help raise the kids, and despite the nannies Diana was a hands on mom. But also think about all the time a teacher had to punish us in replacement of our parents. In elementary we spent 8hrs a day with one teacher and saw him/her more than our own parents.

There are plenty of "normal" people who have nannies. I had one, as did many people I know (though, in most cases, they weren't live-in nannies). And, you're correct, it doesn't prevent someone from being a hands-on parent at all. Diana was quite hands-on with her kids, and I think Charles could be too. Obviously William and Kate are, as well.

I don't think it sad or strange to see a child being disciplined by someone other than their parents - as you point out, it happens in elementary school, and even before that for many people. A lot of young kids spend part or most of their day in the care of someone other than their parents: at daycare, at preschool, with a nanny, etc. So, young William got told off for misbehaving by his nanny, but I'm pretty sure she wasn't the only one to do that. To my understanding, William was a bit of a handful, much like George, so I'm sure there were plenty of times when Diana fussed at him, too. It's probably much the same with George: we see Kate telling him not to do something, and I'm sure there are times when his nanny has to do so also.

I have to say that he looks like a fun little hand full. No wonder she can stay in shape. I'm guessing she chases him around like that a lot.

polyesco,

Thanks for posting the pictures.

The tractors are there for all the children.
It is nice Catherine is taking him to the playground so that he can learn to share with other children.

Thanks polyesco - enjoyed seeing these.

Loved how both PG and the Duchess had their sleeves rolled/pushed up - really getting into it!



(And Prince William has just had a pap - or more likely mobile phone photo by a fellow passenger - photo put out by the "Daily Mail/Mail Online" from a Ryanair flight he took.

And it looks like he was aware he was being photographed.)

I remember a photo from years ago of Diana actually spanking William. Apparently he refused to come when she called him and she spanked his little butt and marched him into the waiting car. Of course, I have no clue how to find this photo but I do remember it. William was around four.

Uh.. This actually makes me a little sad. I know spanking is still a "proper parenting tecnique" in alot of countries but here it can equal coming in contact with the social services. Somehow I can't see that coming from the woman who advocated hugs to solve the worlds problems... :/

It's the same in my country, nowadays if you spank your children you might get trouble with the social services. BUT, I've been a witness myself, that "no spank" leds the children to be spoiled in a way you don't imagine. I speak for my family for example, my little cousin is so spoiled that she started to hit her own mother, her father sees it and does nothing, saying spanking is bad. But the child turned into a little beast and demands everything.

I think that sometimes, when a child does wrong, needs to be disciplined. Spanking is one of the ways to make your child learn, because scolding doesn't work sometimes. It doesn't kill the child. He/she might cry at the moment, but they will thank you in the future.

It's really not that big of a deal in a lot of places, though it's become increasingly controversial/questioned by many. But I'm about William's age, and I know I was spanked a few times, and I know a lot, if not most or all, of my friends were, too. I don't see it as being contradictory to the fact that Diana encouraged hugs, as my mom is a big hugger too, and certainly I received a lot more of that as a child.

Personally, I'm a bit ambivalent about spanking these days. I don't feel that I was in any way traumatized or mistreated by being spanked, and yet it was a rare occurrence for me, because 1) I was generally quite well-behaved and 2) other forms of discipline, like time-outs, seemed to be effective when needed. However, sometimes I think spanking comes out of a parent's genuine concern or fear: if a child is misbehaving and won't respond to anything else, and maybe the parent is frightened that the child's behavior or lack of response to important instructions from the parent, that child could endanger themselves in some way. I see it as a sort of last-resort approach. My attitude toward this may change when I have kids, but I definitely don't see it as something contrary to Diana as a hugger, and it doesn't make me think less of her in any way. In fact, I don't really find it surprising at all, just normal (at least for the era).

I don't think violence should be encuraged as a solution ever, and especially not learn a child that you fix bad behaviour by hurting someone. But let's not get more into it.

Discipline is not violence.

You go down a slippery slope. People also claim that verbal correction can harm someone...so what...children can just do whatever they want without correction? I would imagine all of us here have seen the results of that type of parenting.
