That's true; I read about the way they used to follow Catherine, trying to cut her off, staying right on the bumper of her car.
They'd try to force her to a higher speed.

It was so they could provoke a reaction (hopefully an angry tirade or gesture) that would make a story!

A few times she pulled over and begged them to stop because it was such a dangerous thing to do, but they always refused, telling her that if she didn't want to be followed, she should stop dating a prince!

This is interesting new. I am surprised that Ms. Middleton having lawyers would not have gone after the paparazzi since it risk her live. She and the prince have warned them though her lawyers for less.

That attitude is just ridiculous. It's one thing to stake out the places the Royals haunt and snap them as they enter and leave, and I can understand the photographers wanting to follow their cars in the hope of snapping them at their destination, but this sort of extreme behaviour crosses the line and becomes dangerous driving and should be treated as criminal behaviour and severely dealt with by the police and courts. Driving a car requires a person's full attention to assess and respond to ordinary risks; having some fool drive way too close and try to cut you off is totally unacceptable and should be punished severely, as should directing camera flashlights towards the occupants of cars.

I can't imagine that they wouldn't complain- tailgating and cutting someone off are both illegal. On top of that they are driving recklessly which I'm sure is ALSO illegal. Pop a policeman in with Ms. Middleton and you have the word of a police bodyguard to add to the witness report.

I totally believe the press (at least a few members of it) would do stupid things like that to get that "perfect shot." There are even a few paparazzi in Hollywood who have caused accidents in order to get a shot. I've always thought they must be pretty awful photographers and pretty desperate to do something like that.

About the Dubai trip, Richard Palmer (of the Express) is tweeting that as of yesterday, PH's office was discussing the Dubai trip & gave no indication that it might be canceled. Canceling the event has bigger ramifications than a scrapped fundraiser for Sentebale. It might be too soon to believe The Sun's "exclusive" report.

Did not another royal house cancel their up incoming trip? I know the Queen of Denmark travel there with no problems. But with Prince Henry being a top royal and a soldier I don't doubt this report. But to really be sure we should wait for an official responds.

I believe Queen Beatrix did cancel an official state visit to the region, Oman I believe.....

Update- Richard now saying PH canceled trip because it would be inappropriate to play polo with so many other major things occuring.... I say good for Harry!

I heard William did take action when the behavior persisted, getting Scotland Yard to offer Kate a measure of protection. And lawyers did contact the press office, etc.
But the behavior I described happened before that.

(Still, I don't think anyone has much control over the paparazzi, as this latest incident shows).

This was 'Breaking News' on the BBC this morning. It's not surprising.

As the discussion of the use of Harry/Henry is not a current event, it has been moved to the Naming customs of British Royalty thread.

The 26-year-old could now return to the Afghan front line in a combat role as early as spring of next year.
In a major personal milestone, Harry has made it through a gruelling ten-month course to learn how to fly the £46million attack chopper.

I hope he can go to combat if he wants. I read the war in Afghanistan will heat up this summer for American soldiers.

He may go to Afganistan, but he won't be a combat soldier. It will not be allowed. He was yanked out of the combat theatre the last time he was there.

If he were to go to Afghanistan, he would be doing what other Apache helicopter pilots do. The key will be to ensure confidentiality in relation to his deployment.
