I don't believe that this is the case. It's the papers that keep bringing the Queen's statement into this issue, not the Middletons. A person should be able to play tennis on private property without being photographed, especially if the person has absolutely no public role.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Middletons were behind the articles released.

I don't think the middletons have that much control over what is written about them.
I don't think they like the fact that this news has been published, and I don't think it's them bringing in the Queens Statement, they didn't write the articles.

Well, you don't know that they didn't. Perhaps they did, perhaps not. You never know, it's not that difficult to leak things to the press.

I think if they had any sort of power with the press, the not so nice articles about Kate and her family that have been published would not exist. The Royal Family will always be brought into it when Kate is mentioned in the press because her connection with them is the only reason why anyone knows who she is.

I suppose you can leak anything you like but I don't think you get to write the article yourself. Sure, they could have contacted the media and said we are brining legal action against a photographer and an agency, but the tone of the article and any other content is up to the paper not the source. It is also a dangerous game to play, particularly if you have previously made complaints to the PCC about certain newspapers, like Kate has done. The media do not like to be played with.

Actually the press has been rather nice to Kate and her family lately, especially Hello Magazine.

I think that it would be counter-productive for the Middletons to release information to the media saying that they were suing a media source. It's sending a mixed message.

I am kind of new to all this debate and haven't really followed this particular royal family since Diana died. But why is the Kate girl getting so upset over a few pictures? It's not like the pictures were of her inside the cottage and the photographer used a wide-ranged lens to snap her in her bra and panties. They were out playing tennis for crying out loud! Seems to me this girl likes to create drama! I remember a few years ago hearing about her getting upset when there was a few too many photographers snapping her on her birthday. She needs to pick her battles and focus on winning the war even if she loses a few battles. If she gets upset at this small infraction how will she deal with it if William does indeed propose? And just when is he going to do so? He sure is taking his time about it, now isn't he?

She is upset because she is a private individual doing private things on private property and therefore her privacy was invaded by this photographer.
She has as much right as anyone else to be able to go outside and enjoy herself on private property without being subjected to paparazzi, in particular, and others, taking her pictures.
Even if she ever joins the royal family this right to privacy should be hers as a right.

The general public do not have a right to see photos of people in the public eye doing things in their off duty hours, unless those photos show them doing something that could compromise them doing their official duties e.g. a prime minister seen taking money from a lobbyist at the side of the swimming pool of said prime minister but just a photo of the PM and family enjoying a bbq around said pool - no we don't have a right and nor do we have a right to see photos of Kate playing tennis as she is enjoying her life on private property and is a private individual.

William will propose when he is ready (and he may already have done so for all we know). We will be told when he and Kate are ready which could be today, tomorrow, later this year (after the British general election), next year, sometime in 2012, in 2013, after he has finished his military duty, or sometime after that or never.

I think there is a miscommunication here. I only questioned why she was getting upset over this when there could possibly be far more invasive encounters with the media. I wouldn't get nearly as upset over having my picture taken playing tennis as I would, say of someone using a camera with a lens that allowed them to see into my bedroom or bathroom. Of course, if I am in the city I would have the curtains drawn, but out in the country I probably would not be so cautious. That is all I meant by my previous comment.

Point taken Lavender. The problem is that the photographers were on private property when they got their tennis pictures and walking around the property to get the shots which is trespassing since they hadn't permission to enter the place. When Kate and her family can see the photographer outside their window with the camera pointed straight at the family clicking away, it's an intrusion. I'm sure we all would be incensed at someone taking pictures as we go on with our daily lives and the reason we keep our drapes closed especially at night is that we don't want unnecessary intrusion into our private lives. Right now Kate is still a private citizen and deserves to be treated as the rest of us.

You have to understand that this is not the first time something like this has happened. She has been dealing with this for 7 years or so now, has had her picture taking while out shopping, eating, walking to work,taking out her trash, getting out of a cab while a pap uses a wide lens to shoot her underwear. Christmas is a time for family and most of us would think a private time. She has also filed charges before so it is not like anyone should be shocked. Some people think because she dates William she is public property, but she really has the same rights as you or I. Welcome to The Royal Forums.

I see your points but I am not completely sold on the idea that because she has not yet married Prince William she should be left alone when she isn't around him. I also would like to point out (hoping no one nails me to a wall for this,lol!) but if he had already married her a long time ago then she wouldn't have to worry about this now. There is another site like this one that I have only read the comments and not made any real opinion of her yet. That site is quite anti-Kate (that is their term not mine). They seem to think this was the attempt on the part of her and her family to get money because there is rumors that they have spent all of their money trying to keep up the lifestyle of a social class they are not really a part of and the term use for her is "Waity Katy". There are other names, but that one is the least offensive. What has this girl done to make them so mad at her? It can't be all jealousy. I hope its not a mistake to discuss or comment in here on that area. I certainly do not want to get into a heated debated like there seems to go on over there. Do all of you like Kate or what?

I like Kate and have noticed especially in articles in the Daily Mail that the press seems to paint Kate and her family in a negative light yet when it comes to Chelsy the press is lavish with praise. I'm sure I'll have a lot of criticism, but Chelsy's father is friends with the Dictator Mugabe and there have been some items published that he has at one time been involved in some rather shady dealings. Of course, Chelsy is not at fault at all for what her parents do or don't do, but they have pushed their daughter's relationship with a Prince as much as Kate's.
When Kate and William broke up, the press was practically gleeful and with the Harry/Chelsy split, the papers were almost in mourning. I don't understand why the Middletons are portrayed as the persona of evil while the Davy's are lauded? Can some of our members from Great Britain/Commonwealth answer? Thanks!

It's just a guess but I think the English class system has a lot to do with it. The Middleons are part of it but the Davys are not so some real thought has to go into finding reasons Chelsy is not suitable to hobnob with the BRF. And they are from one of the wild former colonies, and that adds an element of interest and danger that makes Chelsy more interesting, too.

I agree. Plus the press - and the British tabloids perhaps in particular (Daily Mail e.g.) - likes it to create stereotypes.
I also think that "wild" Chelsy simply could seem a bit more interesting and entertaining for the press than Kate, who appears a bit more conservative in her clothing and behaviour than Chelsy (not exactly my opinion, just a thought). And we all know, they only want to sell their papers...
