More Intimate Photos of Kate Middleton Released Without Her Permission

OMG 33

Kate Middleton Prince GeorgeShe and Prince William have provided more than enough opportunities for photographers to capture Prince George on film during their Royal Tour. That's why it's just outrageous that the paparazzi published photos of Kate Middleton playing with her son that were not meant for public eyes.

The images were shown on Australian news channels, and it's important to note that the pics were taken without permission from the royals, which is sure to have the Palace all sorts of pissed and then some. The Royal Aides are likely to see this as a huge invasion of privacy -- as they should.

The photos in question supposedly include a shot of Kate with George on her shoulders, one of her pushing him in a stroller, and another of her with him in her lap playing. There's also one more of she and Prince William walking hand in hand along Lake Burley Griffin at Government House in Canberra.

And while she wasn't doing anything remotely controversial in the photos (like sunbathing topless) -- it still just doesn't seem right for the paps to snap pictures of her intimate time with Prince George if she hasn't granted them permission.

Yes, she and Prince William are in high demand, but that doesn't mean they aren't regular parents just like the rest of us who want to enjoy private time with their child away from prying eyes. And again, they've been very generous about sharing Georgie with the world over the past couple of weeks, so it's not like they don't understand that people want to see pictures of him.

Unfortunately, this won't be the last time something like this happens. I guess they should kind of expect it from here on out anytime they have their little guy in tow. Being a royal may have more than its fair share of perks, but man -- the downside is definitely quite a drag.

Do you think Kate and Wills should be upset about these photos?

They are in the public eye so I don't think they have the right to be upset. They were not inappropriate. If they were of her topless or during an emotional time then they could complain. Everyone in the public eye has to deal with this. It's their reality.

They were in public. Rude? Yes. But what do they expect? Look how celebs are treated here in America

While I agree it's not polite to photograph their personal family moments they are public figures so I'm not sure why they are surprised this is happening. You leave your home and go out in public you're pretty much free reign photographer material.....

i am afraid this will always happen its because they are so well liked to in its going to happen its not fair but this is the way of the paparazzi, they need to let them have some priversey and family time and they should do photo shoots when they feel as they are ready not on xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I think that the press should not invade there privacy. Kate and William have given ample photo opportunity and have been more than genious with George. Let them enjoy there son In private.

Joyce Millar

yes a think they should be upset as that was there time with there son and like you say there has been plenty photos of the family together a did think when a saw the pictures what a sham they cant even go out for a stroll together without photographers hounding them so please give this nice young couple some quality time together which is precious enough with the job they have and they do ity very well considering who they are and what they do ,so back of and let them have some fun when they can

If the Duchess can comment in public about her husband going bald, why should a decent and quite sweet picture of their holding hands be offensive to them.  Really!

I feel bad that becasue they are in the public eye they can't take their baby boy outdoors to enjoy some fresh air and sunshine wtihout being photographed.  They weren't walking down the street, they were on the grounds of the house where they are staying.  I admit to looking at the photos because they were just too sweet, but now I feel guilty.  God Bless her and her family.

this was a private moment with their son just because they are public figures doesnt mean they shouldnt be allowed some privacy
