Kensington Palace has accused paparazzi photographers of harassing Prince George to gain lucrative photographs.

I am concerned and I have every sympathy with the royal couple. They very generously have made available pictures of their wonderful children to the British press and the British press have behaved, frankly, very well because they printed those pictures. But they haven't been, as I understand it, printing paparazzi pictures and it's very important they don't because if you start printing the paparazzi pictures, the paparazzi go further and further in trying to get pictures of the royal family.

What we need to do now is to persuade some of these foreign publications not to use these pictures. I do think William and Kate deserve some privacy and some space as they bring up their children. They do make available some pictures so we can all see and share in the joy they've got with their children but they should not be harassed by paparazzi.

– David Cameron, speaking to BBC Breakfast
