Queen warns media over paparazzi pictures of royals
Move comes amid growing frustration over intrusion into lives of royal family and friends

The Queen has warned newspapers against publishing paparazzi photos of members of the royal family, it emerged today.

The warning comes amid growing frustration about intrusion into the private lives of the royals and their friends.

The monarch's lawyers have contacted newspapers, informing them of privacy obligations under their own code of practice.

The move is thought to have the full backing of high-profile members of the royal family including the Prince of Wales and his sons, princes William and Harry.

Paddy Harverson, Prince Charles's communications secretary, explained: "Members of the royal family feel they have a right to privacy when they are going about everyday, private activities.

"They recognise there is a public interest in them and what they do, but they do not think this extends to photographing the private activities of them and their friends."

The first test of the new approach is likely come in the next few weeks when the royals gather at the Sandringham estate, in Norfolk, for Christmas.

In previous years, freelance photographers have spent hours monitoring the area to get pictures of the family. But this year, they will be monitored on public roads around the area.

William voiced concern after his girlfriend, Kate Middleton, was hounded by the paparazzi in 2007, while the role of the paparazzi in the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, in a Paris car crash has also been widely scrutinised.

But the Republic campaign group, which calls for the monarchy to be replaced with an elected head of state, said the royals must remain open to scrutiny.

"While everyone has a right to a certain level of privacy, the Queen cannot expect the media to dance to her tune," spokesman Graham Smith said.

"The media are not there to act as promoters of the royals. The Windsors routinely use the media when it suits them to promote their activities and their personal lives.

"Our press is awash with positive stories about the personal lives of the Windsors. The palace should not be the ones dictating where the line should be drawn."

He said the press "must be allowed to pursue stories and take photos if there is genuine news value or public interest".

"There have been a number of photos taken of Windsors apparently hitting or killing animals, highly questionable actions that the public have a right to know about," he added.

"If people who claim a God-given right to head our nation are falling out of nightclubs, then clearly there is a public interest."

He warned that the Windsors "cannot have it both ways. If they demand privacy then they must submit to accountability, transparency and scrutiny".

But the "commoners"  must submit to being photographed and recorded by CCTV cameras everywhere they go.

Queen Elizabeth II tells paparazzi to back off

(AP)

LONDON — Britain's Queen Elizabeth II has warned newspapers not to run unauthorized paparazzi photos of the royal family, Buckingham Palace said Sunday.

The palace said a lawyer for the British monarch wrote to newspaper editors about six weeks ago telling them not to publish intrusive photos of the family at home.

The palace said the letter was sent "in response to many years of the royal family being hounded by photographers on the queen's private property."

The royal family has long had an uncomfortable relationship with photographers. Some people feel media hounding contributed to the death of Princess Diana in a car crash in 1997.

More recently, Prince William and Prince Harry have been snapped emerging from nightclubs and William's girlfriend Kate Middleton was pursued outside her home.

In 2007 William's spokesman complained about the "threatening" behavior of photographers.

Prince Charles' spokesman, Paddy Harverson, told the Sunday Telegraph that members of the royal family "feel they have a right to privacy when they are going about everyday, private activities."

"They recognize there is a public interest in them and what they do, but they do not think this extends to photographing the private activities of them and their friends," he was quoted as saying.

The push for privacy is likely to be tested later this month when the royal family gathers at the Sandringham estate in eastern England for Christmas. In the past Sandringham has been a magnet for photographers, who try to get pictures of the family relaxing on the estate.

Excerpt from article

"The monarch's lawyers have contacted newspapers, informing them of privacy obligations under their own code of practice."

So newpapers in England are not licensed or allowed to operate  unless they agree to the "code" of practice?
