Princess Catherine - Pictures

I just wanted to do a small post.  Well - I really didn't WANT to ... but rather, I felt compelled to do so.

With the recent leaks of the intimate pictures of Princess Catherine, while sunbathing with her husband; Prince William, on the balcony of a private family estate in France.  I have to say that I am simply horrified for her!!

I just cannot express enough how inappropriate and invasive I feel these pictures are.

Now, I absolutely understand that celebrities and royal family members are subjected to a certain amount of transparency in their lives, simply by virtue of the lives they live.  That said, there must be boundaries.

Even with the pictures that were leaked previously of Prince Harry carrying on in Las Vegas, well ... Harry has always been a bit of a player.  I do however, question his common sense.  IF you are a Prince, and you are young - and in Vegas ... by all means, play, party, do what you have to do.  BUT, for the Love of God, confiscate all recording devices before the party begins.  That just seems like common sense to me.

However, the situation with Catherine is frankly disgusting to me.  I am deeply disturbed by Closer Magazine of France for taking and posting the pictures, but - after St James Palace filed a law suit against the magazine, for the Italy branch of the same publication to turn around and do an 18 page spread of such private moments between a husband and wife. Is simply appalling to me.  

I am reminded of how the press and paparazzi hounded the late Princess Diana, and I am fearful for the life ahead of Catherine.  I pray that the press will back off.  The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are public enough, that you do not need to go to such intrusive and invasive measures just in the name of the almighty buck.

Have we learned nothing from the horrible fate that was Princess Diana's?  And at the end of the day .. her death was all for what?  A picture.  And why?  For money.

Leave these young people alone!!
