In the 1930s the Queen Mum understood that and had film released of the family. The Queen did the same thing - with Charles and Anne in particular from when they were younger than George is now - actual film footage of them was released of them with their parents. Diana and Charles did that with William as well.

George only seems to be allowed to be seen when overseas and never at home with his family - just an image of him sitting on stairs or standing near some wall ...

They need to arrange a few more shoots each year using a trusted single photographer who can take some decent footage that they can edit down to 30 seconds or so and so that public can connect.

If not then there will be more and more of these 'intrusions' as the courts may be able to control the British media but they can't control the media elsewhere - especially in the days of social media - and if William felt Diana was hounded - he ain't seen nothing yet as George will always be a target and the more they hide him the greater the demand will be.

Once he is at school it will be a lot harder to protect him - unless they are going to school him in something resembling a prison.
I agree with some of this. But no way in h-e-double hockey sticks will them filming a few clips hinder publication of off duty pictures.

The ruling wasn't even close. There were a number of breeches of the press code. The press watchdog found that

- George and Catherine were on private property

- They didn't know they were being photographed

- They were on personal time (not performing public duties)

- And there was no public interest in publishing the photos just for the sake of it. (George was only sitting on a scooter)

The media havre only themselves to blame when they get called on the carpet like this. They have created this situation.

I don't blame the Cambridges for being quick to push back for any little infraction. Considering the history of irresponsible behavior of said media, I'd be quick to act too if I were them.

It's one thing for the children to be photo'd while in public (although myself I don't think they should be unless they are at some event with their parents or a official photo call type thing), it's quite another for the sneaky long range cameras that intrude on everyday life.

Right. I think that William is NEVER going to be friendly to the Press and good for him. so if they do things like photograph his kids when they are on off duty time in a sneaky way, he's going to hit back.

Ipsos is a voluntary organisation. Some papers like the Express and The Sun are members, other like The Guardian are not.

It's very odd to me to blame the Cambridges for filing a complaint about George's privacy when the Editor's own code of conduct says he should have privacy in certain situations.

The Express newspaper published photos in violation of it's own code of conduct, yet it's the Cambridges who get the guff.

Exactly. They have a code of conduct for a reason that the members have agreed on. If they don't agree then they don't have to be in it. Same, the UK press CAN post pictures of the royal kids, and they could post pictures of William when he was in university. But they didn't, because if they do they will not get access. I don't think it's odd for them to only allow access for media that follow a certain degree of conduct. Groups like that are there to ensure a level press, and ofc the royals will invite press from those groups. Nothing odd about it.

Prince George: Why he only wears shorts

My mother and grandmother dressed me in these kind of shorts as a young kid too. I just never understood why. Every time I see Prince George wardrobe, I can but help to reflect on my childhood and wardrobe.

Now, I'm sure William & Catherine make sure George wear warm trousers in the winter, but, come to think of it, we don't see George in the winter so we really don't know.

People in the public spotlight have a reasonable expectation of privacy when on their own time and in their own space. Prince William certainly is quite sensitive to this, given his background. For the press to continue to hound him and his family when they are on their own time and on their private property is unconscionable. I don't blame him for taking the legal steps he has.

Good points Catlin. Also the recent hacking of his sister-in-law's phone is likely to reinforce the need to take the measures to protect the privacy of his children.

I agree. As a private citizen, I cannot imagine the awful media intrusion suffered by members of the Royal Family. It is relentless. In addition, with modern technology and unscrupulous hackers, they don't even have the privacy of their phones. The invasion of privacy as well as constant security concerns must be overwhelming at times. I do not envy them at all. I think they handle the stress much better than most of us would.

A very interesting article from Paris Match

Royal Style – Baby George, condamné aux culottes courtes http://www.parismatch.com/Royal-Blog...ourtes-1090303

In two words, Prince George is constantly wearing short pants and it will be like this till he is 8 years old, because it is the use in upper British class. Wearing long pants before the age of 8 or 9 it is sign of middle or low social level.

I would imagine when it gets to be winter time and a lot colder, George isn't dressed in shorts.

Nope, those shorts are packed away once the winter kicks in. Trousers and long John's are likey used then. Those long John's made me want to scream though.

It's tradition, so why would Catherine ditch what the Royal Family has been doing in regards to children's dress for heaven knows how long? It's not hurting anyone and it looks as if heMp's dressed in short trousers for official events only. It's not a big deal.

At least the tradition of young boys/princes in DRESSES has passed into history: https://www.google.com/search?q=geor...bg-fSTJ8WRM%3A
