LONDON: Prince William and his wife Catherine have asked the paparazzi to respect the privacy of their new baby Princess Charlotte and the royal family, Press Trust of India (PTI) reported.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have taken their newborn and her brother Prince George to their country residence of Anmer Hall in Norfolk, east of England on Queen Elizabeth II’s Sandringham Estate.
The letter, undersigned by the couple’s communications secretary and distributed by local Norfolk police, calls for “acts of harassment and breaches of privacy to cease.”
“There have in the past been a number of intrusions into the privacy of the royal family which have been as a result of photographers using long-distance lenses to observe the family and photograph them going about their activities on the estate,” it said.
Norfolk police confirmed it was distributing letters on behalf of the royal couple but would not comment further.
Kate and William will spend the first few weeks of Charlotte’s life in their refurbished Georgian mansion.
Anmer Hall is a 10-bedroom country retreat and was the Queen’s wedding gift to the couple. – Bernama
