Tanna already knows! He has complained on Twitter several times about not being given a permit to take his pap pics in Royal Parks. He has said that if he tries in lieu of a permit he knows for sure the Cambridges will have him in court.

The British Press can complain until they're blue in the face. They still have to abide by British laws. If they want a change then they will have to petition The Parliament. I don't think MP's will be all that sympathetic to tabloid columnists who want to publish unauthorized pictures of toddlers.

The press complains because the law is against them; and the royals are the ones on the moral high ground - not them. They have no options. They can only cross their slimy fingers that someday another Diana-type joins the BRF and feeds them exclusive info/pics. In the meantime they get no sympathy from me! If they could legally get away with stalking 24/7, and phone-tapping - they would do it in a millisecond. They are horrible people and I pity the BRF for having to deal with them.

Publications in Australia and elsewhere grab these unauthorised photos and publish them so they don't occupy the high moral ground either.

It's the tabloid press in Britain that helps keep the royals in the public's mind, for good or ill. Comparatively few read the broadsheet press. The royals need British newspaper coverage and photos keeping their image out there just as much as any elected politician and just as much as the tabs need royal stories to feed to their readers. It's a you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours situation.

Richard Palmer said on twitter there is no law or agreement in place preventing paps from taking George's picture outside of royal parks.

He said if William and George were walking down the street someone can take their picture. So lets not turn this into the Cambridges control the press.

Palmer said the decision to publish such pics lies with editors, not journalists or photographers and editors almost always refuse to publish them.

So when photographers complain they try and make it about the royals when really its an editorial decision.

For example, Palmer said his paper the Daily Express has a permit for the royal parks but editors won't publish pics of royals taken in royal parks.

So don't blame the royals for editorial decisions.

My above post was a reply to Miss Whirley's points about British tabloids. I wasn't saying that the Cambridges control the Press, which would be a ridiculous statement. My point is that ALL the royals need the press as much as the press needs them and it is best for all parties to have a cordial relationship. Naturally, George's photos are in our minds here because this is George and Charlotte's thread and it has been George's photos by unauthorised photographers that have been in contention lately.

No actual photos have been posted in a message - it has all been links.

However, if you are using the TRF mobile app (as I see you are based on the footer of your post), you are seeing the direct links as photos because the app automatically loads them within the post. Whether or not this can be altered within the app software is something for our techies to determine.

Thank you for explaining this! I didn't know that the mobile app automatically loads direct links as photos. Makes sense to me now.

Prince Charles has turned part of his garden at Highgrove House into a magical playground fit for little royals!

Charles, 66, and Prince George, who turned 2 last week, have enjoyed playtime on the grounds of Charles' grand country home, a royal source confirms to PEOPLE.

The proud grandpa recently treated his grandson to a garden picnic, complete with plastic cups, the source says.

He was also able to show George the sweet garden hut he was given to mark the little royal's first birthday last year

Here are some tweets about paparazzi pics. Richard Palmer is talking about earlier photos but it applies to the most recent ones.

https://twitter.com/RoyalReporter/st...04822417739776

Richard Palmer clearly states there is no legal reason papers can't publish such pics but its a judgement call by editors. William has no say.

So the next time a photographer or journalist complains on twitter, tell him or her to talk to the newspaper editors. Its always an easy out to bash the royals.

As a number of people in above posts have stated, the decision to not publish lies with the newspaper publishers. Why do they refuse to publish? In my opinion, there are 2 main reasons:
1) Diana- the way she was hounded when alive and the night of her death really turned the British public against pap pics. Will & Harry are her children and any intrusive pics of them immediately brings up the Diana situation, thus editors try to advoid these comparisons.
2) Even with the above point in play, there were a lot of pap pics of Will, Harry, Catherine and Chelsy before 2010(?). The girlfriends had it worse because they didnt have RPO and these pics were published. Then came the phone-hacking scandal (first accidently noted by Prince William). The public got an idea of the lengths journos were going to to get stories (blantant invasion of privacy). This resulted in the News of the World being shut down and the public being more supportive of privacy laws. The media is still trying to win back public support and thus the editors are less willing to take chances by publishing pap pics of a child.

So why are the journos and photographers on twitter complaining and blaming the palace? Its simple, they are trying to get public opinion on their side and thus force the palace to explicitly say that they have no problems with these pics being published. They keep on using the whole "how can the rest of the world watch George grow but not the British public" argument. The problem is George is a toddler and few people will support him being followed around. Most people are protective of children plus the fact that he is Diana's grandson.

I have stated before that official pics will not change anything. We have seen George a lot since the birth of his sister and instead of calming things, these appearances have made things worse. There is no denying that he is the current star of the BRF and these past appearances have made that clear and thus increased global demand for his pics. We are seeing more pap pics of him now than before Charlottes birth

The argument that the British people can't see George but the rest of the world can is ridiculous. The Internet exist in the UK. They can see the same pictures the rest of the world can. A printed newspaper is a dinosaur in today's world of instead communication.

I'm sure that view that they are dinosaurs must be a great comfort to journalists at work on national dailies in Britain. These are people trying to make a living, you know. It's very easy to say we can all do without newspapers but thousands get their news and views from them each day, including news of the royal family.

Phew! If you're one of the as of 2013, 36 million adults (73%) in Great Britain who access the Internet every day you can see Prince George

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

The fact is newspapers are on a downward trend.

Even if pap pics were published in British newspapers, the above statistic would suggest most people would see them first on the internet anyway

Photos of George today don't appear until tomorrow's newspaper.

A lifetime with today's instant technology.

Yes, it is instant technology. So are the countless Twitter forums and unreliable websites peddling news and theories about various members of the BRF. It's not all joy for the future, even if pictures of George can be seen at the touch of a finger. The royal family may well be wary of British tabloids but having to counter and try to control the myriad gossip sites about them on the Internet will be ten thousand times worse if the print media disappears.

I'm not suggesting newspaper should disappear. But the argument put forward by some that only people outside the UK can see Prince George is silly.

Anyone, anywhere with a cellphone or laptop can see the pictures of George.

That still doesn't negate the fact that its newspaper editors preventing the publishing of pap pics, not the royals.

If Britons want to see unauthorised photos of Prince George in papers, I suggest you lobby editors of Britain's tabloids.

The joys of supervising an active two year old, especially one eagerly throwing sand about when digging a hole! The weather in Norfolk can be quite brisk even in the height of summer. There's sometimes an icy wind blowing gritty sand as well. Carole probably wanted to get back to a less exposed environment!

I am sure there was "someone" with them - at least one someone. Lupo may be free range, but my guess was that he was out of shot often enough that someone was keeping an eye on him. The extra stuff - her shoes, the pail, etc. also come and go.

Carole seems quite natural with George and he with her. She did not fuss but kept him engaged for about the amount of time (if the report of beach time was correct) it would take to toss some surprise decorations up around the house.
Cuteness!

that was my thought ...Granny Carole was keeping George 'occupied and out of the way' while the house was being set up for his birthday party.
