This is going slightly off topic and maybe merits a new thread. But if you were William and Catherine how would you protect your child in the future?

Charles brokered a deal with the UK media to protect William and Harry - all pre Twitter, Facebook, mobiles with cameras. What is ahead for Baby Cambridge? It is not looking good and is, in addition, a security nightmare.

Some sort of deal will have to be made - or perhaps legislation on protection of minors, even those in the public eye.

I am of the opinion that once that baby arrives and has been around for a time, some of the frenzy will die down.

I don't disagree that this is a tremendous problem.

But these photos are money shots and the only way to make them not money shots is to act as a group and not view them. Money talks.

I looked at the picture of Kate, and she does look distended in front, but not in a bump manner. We talked about this on some thread. Some tall girls don't get a bump early, they rather a fullness or distention of the lower ab area. The bump appears later than in short girls. I disagreed with the commenters on the bump-viewing site who say they saw no bump. No, no bump but definitely a pregnancy protrusion. Kate never had ANY abdominal protrusion before this, was flat as a pancake.

I don't know how it's like in the UK but here in Denmark the tabloids are being somewhat more considerate when it comes to the royal children. It's very rare that they have their picture taken unless they're out with their parents or in some official matter. Obviously though, there's a way bigger hype about the Cambridge baby.

Sorry, Miche, I forget the site on TRF, but there was one on Miss Honoria Glossip's site.
There are lots of interesting pictures, mostly royal but some others. The pictures was on the Glossip site before the Duchess went on vacation, in a cape which shows some degree of protruberance.
I go to Miss Honoria Glossip nearly every day to see the pics. They showed Kate walking in a cape, and she has no bump but she is expanding some below the waist, typical of long-waisted women like Kate. Kate won't show a bump-like protrusion until later, at least over five months.

Does anyone wonder sometimes what brand of clothes Baby Cambridge will wear? I was discussing this with my mother last week and we think that if it's a girl, the baby might wear some clothes from Jigsaw as Catherine used to work there. I'm not sure if they still do children's wear but when I was 9, I had a party skirt, which I loved, from there. Also, Jigsaw only sell girl's children's wear so that's why I bought this up .

I'm quite certain that there will be a giraffe motif for The Child's room.

The Child probably won't wear Baby Dior, but to me, they have the cutest clothes.

If I were William and Kate, I'd make good use of 'their' website Homepage .

I'd have Kate get out her camera and have her (and William) take candids and post one or two photos on their website - every week or so. Furthermore, I'd make money off the pics (the way the paps do) and donate that money directly to their charities.

Beat the paps at their own game, as it were.

They could get great uncle Andrew to take some photos as well. Edward and Sophie used the money from photo's released of Lady Louise for charities. Wills and Kate will hopefully do the same.

That is a genius idea and I hope they do it (or at least something like it).

I too was going to suggest Andrew as the family photographer so that the images are controlled and the baby left alone...But perhaps his latest debacle will not allow them to use him?

Also, his closeness to his X-wife could be an issue for the Queen?

Kate is supposedly a photographer. Kate could use timer shots to include herself in the photos. I have done it successfully. She of course should be able to photograph baby (with Willl or without) and make chosen images available for media release on the condition that the media leave them alone.

Someone should write them and make the suggestion. In Denmark, Mary photographs the children.

Most likely William & Catherine will release pictures of the baby.
