Anmer Hall, the 10-bedroom country estate of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, is now a little more private for the young royal family.
Anmer Hall is now a no-fly zone.
The measures to make Anmer Hall a no-fly zone were prompted by a number of intrusions into the couple’s privacy over the years.
With drone technology becoming a more accessible tool for paparazzi, the couple felt the move to be necessary for their protection.
The biggest offense of all has been the photographers’ ever-increasing frenzy to capture pictures of Prince George and Princess Charlotte at Anmer Hall, Kensington Palace and even local playgrounds and beaches.
In a “letter from Kensington Palace“, Communications Secretary Jason Knauf insisted that photographers have “on multiple occasions used long range lenses to capture images of The Duchess playing with Prince George in a number of private parks, monitored the movements of Prince George and his nanny around London parks and monitored the movements of other household staff and photographed the children of private individuals visiting The Duke and Duchess’s home.”
He also said photographers have “pursued cars leaving family homes, used other children to draw Prince George into view around playgrounds, been found hiding on private property in fields and woodland locations around The Duke and Duchess’s home in Norfolk, obscured themselves in sand dunes on a rural beach to take photos of Prince George playing with his grandmother and placed locations near the Middleton family home in Berkshire under steady surveillance.”
Well, after reading that, one certainly can’t blame the royal couple for petitioning for a no-fly zone over Anmer Hall.
What do you think? Has British paparazzi gone too far in trying to capture pictures of the royal family at Kensington Palace and Anmer Hall?
