When it comes to the royal family, Kate Middleton and the rest do an amazing job of staying transparent and allowing photos of Princess Charlotte and Prince George–that is, until they’re not warned that the pics are being taken.
The style icon proved once again that she’s a lot like all the other moms out there when her tiger mom instinct was revealed over photos snapped of Prince George and the rest of the family. After all, it’s only natural to feel protective when it comes to your little ones–doubly so, we have to assume, if they’re constantly subject to the prying eyes of the press and paparazzi.
Unbeknownst to the couple that has captured all of our hearts, the paparazzi took pictures of Prince George with the police and released them publicly. Middleton claims she and her son were on private land and unaware that any photos were being taken.
The couple releases a fair amount of photos of everything from formal events–like the holiday celebrations–to intimate moments like vacations and family walks, so naturally they felt that these unsanctioned snaps were an invasion of privacy. Just check out all these photos that they released for Princess Charlotte’s birthday. Even better, see the adorable duo in the pictures the family released of Prince George and Princess Charlotte in Canada. They’ve certainly allowed us many glimpses into the lives of these ruddy-faced royals!
Kensington Palace remains dedicated to protecting the royal rugrats, a duty we can all support no matter where you stand on the sneakily-snapped pictures, don’t you think?
