In fact, according to The Daily Telegraph, once William learned of the press’ behavior, he was “absolutely furious.” This might not come as a surprise to some people, given that it was widely reported that the accident that led to his mother’s death was partly caused by the paparazzi.
After William and Charles intervened, some newspapers took notice and subsequently stopped using paparazzi images of Kate. Nonetheless, just three years later, the future duchess was forced to pursue a claim for invasion of privacy, after photos were taken of her while she was holidaying with her family.
But that wasn’t the end of it. Unfortunately, after the couple got married, the amount of media intrusion did not diminish. In fact, just one year after their wedding, the royal couple’s privacy was invaded like never before during a vacation in France.
