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.
Richard Palmer is telling a half-truth. While The Express may have a permit, the paparazzi do not, therefore any of the photos would be illegal to publish as they were illegally obtained. The only way The Express could publish the photos would be to plant one of their accredited journalists in Kensington Gardens 24/7 and try to take the pictures themselves. Not very financially practical. That's the real reason they don't publish.

I find it strange that the beach is clear, apart from the woman in the white and black outfit. Though the weather didn't look that great (and it was cold where I live that day as well) and the English sea is very cold so perhaps that explains why they almost had the beach to themselves. It would seem silly to ask everyone to leave so George and Carole could have it to themselves, so I highly doubt that was the reason for its "emptiness".

Having been born and bred in Norfolk and lived there most of my life, I can say that most of the vast Norfolk coastline and beaches can be virtually empty even at weekends, and you may only see the occasional dog-walker a mile or so away. At busy times like bank holidays or when the schools are off, even then you do not have to walk too far away from the beech-goers to find yourself on your own.

What a great place for the Cambridges to have access to. Inclusiveness with big chances for privacy! Seems perfect!

This reminds me of a story I heard somewhere about the Queen and beaches. Seeing as this outing for Carole and George were close to the Sandringham estate, it very possibly could be the same beach HM went to.

Anyways... HM went to the beach one day and was dressed casual with her ever present head scarf. Quietly sitting on the beach, she was approached by a very excited woman who wasted no time informing her that: "Did you hear? The Queen is supposed to visit this beach today. Maybe we'll be lucky and see her!" HM must really have had a good chuckle over that one eh?

The story isn't verbatim as I just recounted the basis of the story but it does go to show how beaches sometimes really can provide privacy.

This makes their preference for Norfolk so understandable- seems like an idyllic place for kids to grow up, plus the freedom and privacy must be so great for them.

It'll be interesting to see how they handle school for the kids- if they move back to London when George is old enough to start nursery school or if they stay in Norfolk

As this is the first I've even thought about the Cambridge kids going to school, my gut reaction is that they'll most likely attend schools like William and Harry did at that age. It wouldn't actually surprise me though if they just went to an ordinary neighborhood school in Norfolk either.

I think a lot depends on the situation with the monarchy at the time too.

If they are still in their current position, I can see George going to a local school. Charlotte can't really follow the path of William and Harry because they went to all boys schools. William and Kate may want to send them to a coed school when they are little so they can be in the same school and when they are older George can go to Eton like his dad and have tea and King lessons at the castle on Sundays and Charlotte goes to Marlborough like mum and rules the field hockey pitch.

I think they'll go to nursery schools in London.They may well both go to Marlborough together and maybe for a short time to St George's, which is at Windsor. Eugenie, Beatrice and Louise Wessex all went there, I believe.

I think St George's would be quite far for George and Charlotte, even if if they lived in Kensington. St George's is only up the road from Bagshot for Louise and James and when Eugenie lived in Sunninghill St George's was very close. Beatrice never went to St George's in Windsor - she remained at Coworth Park and then went to St George's in Ascot.

There are plenty of private schools in London. Garden House where Charles, Margarita and the Taylor girls went/still attend. George could attend Dulwich Prep in London before going to Eton. I imagine Charlotte would end up going to Marlborough where Kate and Eugenie both attended and where I imagine Lady Louise will go.

I imagine they have already got George's name down for a prep school as you have to register them very early on.

What is the average age that children start nursery school in the UK? Here, in the States, it's generally at age three, but some schools will allowance child to attend a few months before the third birthday (if the child has a December birthday, he/she can start in September). It can also depend on the school itself, because each school is different. The guidelines for elementary school are clearer, but they vary from district to district, and state to state. George just turned two, so would he be able to go to something like a center-based daycare, or a playgroup where parents are in attendance too? I've had a student in my preschool class who was from the UK, and her mother told me that she went to nursery school at the age of two. In any case, I'm just curious.

Compulsory education is from 4 years old. There's no requirement for children to attend nursery before then. A lot of state primary schools have a nursery which children attend on either a part or full time basis from 3 years old which a lot of children do now. There's also private childcare / nurseries which take children from a much younger age.

My niece & nephew (now 4 & 7) went to the nursery attached to their primary school from about 3 1/2.

I didn't attend nursery but went to a playgroup a couple of times a week before I started full time school at 4. But where I grew up it was very rural, my parents worked from home and this was 25 years ago so things will be a bit different now!!

When I was little, I used to live in Kensington and first started to attend nursery when I was six months. I stopped attending when I was almost three to go on to primary school. As far as I know my nursery wasn't private.

Some prep (private primary) schools have nurseries/preschools now as well, I remember reading that Garden House has one. One of the prep schools near me also has a preschool.

I could see George attending a preschool in Norfolk for the next 2 yrs and then the week day base may move more regularly to London with weekends in Norfolk allowing him to start primary school in London.
