I doubt it. I didn't see any scared faces on the other passengers

Interesting the pics of the Queen driving both Kate and her mother on different occasions on royal private grounds, where apparently taking photographs is prohibited.

Again, apparently, that privacy clause was breeched when pictures of Prince George sitting on a motor bike with a few officers and Kate around were printed in the press. The Cambridges complained and the complaint was upheld.

Wonder will Kate put in another for this apparent breech of privacy??!

Sandringham is the Queen's estate. It would be up to her. The bar is set a lot higher for a three year old though.

The Cambridges choose their cases carefully. The only one we know they took legal action on were the intrusive paris pics. They might complain to the Press Association but that is generally only when it involves the children (and also Kate before marriage when she was still a private citizen). I'm not aware of any case where they have complained about they themselves being photographed so why would they this time?

Do not all the royal estates/homes inhabited by the family belong to the Queen?!

Other than those bought privately by family members outside the royal stronghold.

I guess the point I'm making is that there is a level of cherry picking in play.

If George was seen sitting pearched in his seat in the back behind Kate/Carole for example. Would that change anything? I suspect not.

I appreciate the aspect of George being in the picture, but in the same picture as the Queen driving Kate / Carole I wonder if it would go as far or anywhere at all? It's good Royals and Mids press.

For example, the photographs of Carole playing on the beach with George about a year ago ..... not aware of anything there .....

Are there any circumstances where you think royal children shouldn't be photographed?

Harry had pictures of him and Cressida in a movie theatre removed from the Mirror website because it breached privacy.

If Harry has privacy there, George should have privacy when he's at home and unaware he's being photographed.

The one with Carole and the Queen were out on the roads of the estate. May have been other people's land. The one that the complaint was about was behind the gates of KP. The photos literally has the metal bars of the fence in the picture.

Were the pictures of George and Carole published in the UK?

The pictures in question are of Catherine and George outside the gates of KP (they can be googled). The pictures of The Queen and Carole were taken on a public road travelling to Crathie Kirk.

Apologies, then the new answer is no. A quick google search shows the pictures, but english press only talked about the pictures never published them.

I'm somewhat doubting that the destination was Crathie Kirk from what I saw in the picture. If HM is heading to church, she is dressed for church with hat, gloves and all. In the photo I saw, it looked to me like the Queen was bareheaded and dressed more casual.

I do not think you will find any "average" , middle- class people there, but of course I could be wrong.
Kate and Pippa did go to a notable boarding school which fees were provided for by an education trust fund from the Middldeton side of the family.

Collage was completely different, acceptance being based on exam results, but you paid the same as anyone else. All walks of life could be found there! !

The year previous and while at boarding school, Kate had applied to and been accepted by The University of Edingburgh (where Pippa subsequently went).

When it was announced William would be attending St. Andrews, following a gap year, Kate retracted her acceptance, applied for the same gap year experience as William and the same collage course at St Andrews, which she was granted. While teachers at her boarding school could acknowladge that fact they couldn't say why!

Not true, kate applied to that gap year long before she went (they even had a survival weekend), the head from that charity said that and that was before she knew william would go there because they made that public after. The acceptance at st andrews had to be before the deadline and william made his public after the deadline so kate didn't know he would go there and both ending up at the same study house was a lotery according to the president of the university. I wouldn't read the dm as much.

If St. Andrews is top school like people claim it is, it would have been hard for Kate to get in at the last minute and be in the same year as William like some people, the think.

Excellent first post. I love when people use logic instead of just regurgitating nonsensical gossip. Unfortunately, the latter is all too common around here.

I agree that everyone should abstain from reading the DM unless they are willing to read with a massive amount of skepticism.
