    Royally Naked

    Why do reporters assume we want to see the Royal Family naked?

    I expressly forbid the use of any of my posts anywhere outside of FG (with the exception of the incredibly witty 'get a room already' )posted recently.
    Folks who'd like to copy my intellectual work should expect to pay me for it.

    I'm torn on this one. They are public figures on the one hand but on the other there should be some reasonable expectation of privacy once in awhile. I think the paparazzi stepped over the line in this case. I hope the papers lost their butts in the courts.

    I don't but I assume there are a lot of people who do...otherwise why would they bother to take them?

    Let's hope this isn't another case of they are not going to leave someone alone like Diana. They overstepped the mark, the couple were on a private holiday it's not like she was on a public beach.

    They overstepped the mark for sure. This was a secluded villa, not a public place. The photographer would have had to go to extraordinary lengths to take those photos. It's intrusive and not at all in the public interest.

    Odd thing is, France has very strict privacy laws. One would think the French magazine would have realised that but obviously felt - wrongly - that the royal household wouldn't take legal action

    Re: Royally Naked

    The pictures are rubbish anyway......whoops.....well you have to peep don't you?

    And *that* sums up most peoples attitude I suspect, I wouldn't cross the road to see any Royal, but if there are mucky pictures on the web, it is a challenge just to find them.


    If the Royals hadn't complained, who would have known about the pictures ? A few French people, that's all.
    Best advice might have been to ignore totally.
    I thought I knew more than this until I opened my mouth

    Just don't buy the papers/magazines that have the pics, maybe they will get the hint if money isn't coming in.

    I wonder if the rule "bad press is better than none" also applies to the press. Perhaps their readership will go up now they've been in the news.

    Yes we do. I was surprised to see she had nipples, royals don't breast feed do they?
