In the US, UK and Australia, adults AND children can be photographed in public places. It is a different story on the continent. I just wanted to be clear about it. That is why there were always lawsuits from Ps Caroline of Monoco whenever her underage children where photographed. She had someone on it all the time, the publication had to decide whether or not the fine was worth it.
Denmark does have laws that protect childrens' images in public. We do not in the US, for adults or children.

Correct, I was talking about the Danish legislation, which is very strict regarding privacy.
I don't know about these laws in other countries.

The nanny doesn't look happy with the presence of the geese and the kids look pretty scared. The geese can be quite intimidating and snappy, even for adults.
Good to see them out and about though, Charlotte will soon walk on her own.

Yes, you are right about that, typical piecemeal approach to the problem. Not sure about the privacy laws re children in Canada either. A knowledgeable poster enlightened us/me about the differing laws on this forum a few years ago.

As a resident of the Golden State I can positively state that what you mentioned is true. It is illegal to take these types of photographs. Paparazzi would lie in wait outside of schools when their parents/nannies would arrive to pick up their children from school in order to photograph them.

Halle Berry’s Anti-Paparazzi Law Passes - Us Weekly
to be fair, in general and especially in the Halle Berry case, photographers are very aggressive, they shove the camera into the children's face, run after them, harrass them, call them out. If it is not illegal yet, it should be and is not acceptable. None of this has happened to the Cambridge children and I believe this is the reason why the Cambridges don't complain.

For me it is ok to take photos from a safe distance without harrassment etc in a public place from the future king of England, even if he is a minor. Having his picture taken is and will be an inherent part of his life and as soon as he turns 18, the harrassment will start. He just needs to ask his uncle Harry.

What need is there to take pictures of children without the consent of their parents? And seriously, how is it justification that "they're public figures"? George is a 3-year-old. Him being a public figure doesn't justify adults selling pictures of a 3-year-old to be printed in magazines and put on the internet, with absolutely no consent from his parents - in fact, rather the opposite.
I agree totally, and I'll go one step further. I disagree with children, Royal or otherwise, say celebrities' children, being used to sell magazines, by putting them on the cover. Even official photos. Children have no say in these matters, in being used this way; they are innocent of the machinations of the press.

Well, this is part of the parcel, as a future monarch you have to bond with the public from early age, you can't hide away your kid and then present him as an 18 year old, totally unprepared for the demands of public life.

I think its too easy to say 'they are children', press making money is only one side, the other side is the royals presenting themselves as happy family - making kind of use of their children themselves - to remind the public how nice and relevant they are. Not to mention that the public as taxpayers fork out for their lifestyle. The real issue is control - the royals want to dictate the press what to publish or not to publish and that doesn't work.

I doubt that the Cambridges gave their consent to have their children photographed at the park while feeding the water fowl.
Yes, to me they also look like they have been taken with a close up lens, however I can't tell for sure because I don't know if they'd still be grainy like these ones (I'm an amateur photographer and have a close up lens for my camera, which has excellent quality), but then again at the same time, I guess it depends on how far away the photos were taken.

I didn't mean that the photos were taken on request, because I can tell that they are paparazzi shots. I doubt William and Catherine would request to have their private outings photographed, unless the photos from that private outing were going to be used for either one of George or Charlotte's birthday photos as an example.

Would be a great way to introduce him to more. I love how Victoria takes Estelle to events when they are child friendly, so she gets accustomed to the attention. But other than balcony at Trooping, Will and Kate seem to prefer keep their kids hidden except for released photos.

Fair enough comment! There's always two (or more) ways to look at things, and it's good to read other points of view.

Although, and I may be wrong about this (I frequently am wrong!) but I thought the taxpayers paid for the public part of the Royals' lives, such as public engagements; i thought their lifestyle (house, holidays etc) were paid for by the Royals themselves. Whoops, getting off topic here. I do actually feel that W&C share quite a few photos of their children growing up; perhaps not as much as the Scandinavian Royals, but I doubt there 's a rulebook for such things!

Prince George loves sculpture, his proud mum, the Duchess of Cambridge, has revealed. Kate was guest of honour at a lavish arts dinner at the Natural History Museum on Wednesday evening, and she told fellow guests that her toddler especially enjoys visiting the museum to see the dinosaur models.

Nicky Wilson, from Jupiter Artland in West Lothian, said: "The Duchess said George comes here a lot. We were talking about children interacting with sculpture and contemporary art and he loves doing that.

"He loves 3D three dimensional sculptures. He does come here [the Natural History Museum] quite often."

Only the Queen and DoE get taxpayers money, the other royals get supported when they do a public engagements, officials duties by the Queen... everything else, their lifestyle that come out of their own pocket.
People act like they don't have personal wealth as a reason to excuses the denial of basic human right. Stalking someone, especially a toddler shouldn't be alright

The Duchess of Cambridge hinted that Prince George could be a future Wimbledon star when she revealed that he has a racket and is already playing tennis.

Kate also said she plays tennis with William - but he is "frustrating" to play against as he is left-handed.

in these pictures I dont think they had any idea about being photographed.
and regarding other royal kids, just yesterday 3 of the Danes were photographed on their bikes on their way to horseback riding school (these photos usually come out as the family stay in Grasten for part of the summer)

She is wearing her brother red cardigan and matching romper...

Regarding the on-going, and quite frankly, annoying topic about photos or not. I hope that who wants to see the pics can do so without being harassed by the those who disagree with the matter.

As someone who participated in the discussion, I apologise. I was unaware of the effect this would have on you, I just found the discussion interesting. If I had known that you were frustrated by this discussion I wouldn't have participated. I didn't contribute massively and I often agree with your posts.
