They have their own team of Royal aides who control everything the media knows about the family and that's how they would like for it to stay. But it's not that easy, as the press are doing everything they can to break down the Royal privacy barrier so they can get as close and personal as possible. These following pictures all show a side of the Royal Family which they did not want you to see. Palace officials want these images buried for good - but for now, they are not going away anytime soon.
This was the photo that shocked the world in The marriage of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, who were at the time Duke and Duchess of York, was failing and the Duchess had been linked to several different men in the press. The Royal Palace were left feeling disgraced as the images were plastered all over the front pages. She was also asked to leave London so she could keep a low profile following the scandal and was not invited to attend another Royal event until She claims that the activities took place in London, New York and on a private Caribbean island.
Considering the various locations the intercourse took place, Roberts was underage in the States where the legal age is years-old. According to court documents, Roberts claimed, "I was 17 at the time. I had the impression Prince Andrew had come there to have sex with me. There was no other apparent purpose for him to be there. I had sex with Andy there. The above photo was used as evidence that the two had met and one that Prince Andrew's legal team had never wanted to see the light of day.
For reasons we don't really have to make obvious. The young couple both studied History of Art at St Andrew's University for four years and during this time became very close. The dress Kate wore now sits in the wardrobe of its designer, Charlotte Todd. She told the Daily Mail , "The dress is a part of fashion history — the moment William could first have fallen in love with Kate — and that makes me really proud. I definitely think it has a played a part in the royal love story. Now Kate is set to be the future Queen of England, Royal aides would prefer if these pictures disappeared for good.
Despite their noticeable chemistry together, they both married other people, which was likely them both following pressures from their own families. When Prince Charles proposed to Diana in , she was 19 and he was A journalist asked him if he was in love, to which he replied: "Whatever 'In Love' means.
Then the "Camillagate" tapes emerged, a series of recorded phone conversations between Prince Charles and Camilla announcing their love for each other - it was very clear they were involved in a full-blown affair. In , Princess Diana confirmed the affair as she revealed during a televised interview, "In a televised interview later that year, Diana, who has also admitted to adultery, says "There were three of us in this marriage, so it was a bit crowded.
Prince Charles later remarried to Camilla and the above photo is a reminder that the couple should have always been together from the very beginning. In , following her divorce from Prince Charles, Diana broke royal protocol by allowing the BBC into her home to record a tell-all interview.
During the jaw-dropping one-hour special, she revealed that for five years she had been having an affair with military man James Hewitt. Many speculated that Prince Harry who has naturally red hair the same as Hewitt's was a product of this affair. Hewitt told the Sunday Mirror , "Admittedly the red hair is similar to mine and people say we look alike.
What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas - unless you're Royal Prince Harry then your wild antics are splashed all over the tabloids the very next day. She was handpicked, along with nine other girls, to continue the party back in his penthouse suit. Carrie said, "We kissed, he was naked at the time, and pretty open. It was a drunken fumble. The alcohol affected him. I was there for 15 to 20 minutes.
Both Prince Harry and Prince William who can be seen in the background looking a little worse than usual certainly were not conducting themselves as the young gentleman they are expected to be. Place officials were left furious when Kate Middleton was photographed sunbathing topless during her honeymoon with Prince William.
The newlyweds, whose wedding was watched by more than 72 million people around the world, retreated to the South of France to get away from the media - but the paparazzi has different ideas. The above pictures were printed in several French magazines as Royal aides pressed charges and began damage control. In Britain, the pictures would not be allowed to go to print but the French press plays a completely different game. An official statement released from the palace read: "The incident is reminiscent of the worst excesses of the press and paparazzi during the life of Diana, Princess of Wales, and all the more upsetting to the Duke and Duchess for being so.
Harry, who is fifth in line to the throne, was snapped on a passer-by's mobile phone as he stood around naked at the 5-star Encore Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas. The pictures were printed in the US press only at first as British newspapers have to respect the Prince's privacy. However, considering Harry was in a public place, The Sun decided to throw out the rule book and splash him across their front page anyway. He made us a bunch of money. The above photo was likely from a private collection of pictures belonging to either Prince Charles or Princess Diana, as his groping on her breast is far from Royal behavior.
The couple, who were expected to be the next King and Queen of England, married at St Paul's Cathedral in July , the wedding was watched by more , people on the streets of London and an estimated million watched the live broadcast. The marriage was clearly doomed from the start as Diana wrote in a private letter to a friend, "The honeymoon was a perfect opportunity to catch up on sleep Towards the end of their failing marriage, Prince Charles and Princess Diana were making headlines around the world following a disastrous trip to India in The body language between them both proved everything, as they constantly shied away from each other and at one point Princess Diana even moved her head as her husband tried to kiss her.
Robin Kermode, communications and body language coach, told The Daily Mail, "The distance between them appears to be their choice. Their hand gestures seem closed. Notice that they are not mirroring gestures at all.
They seem to be two strangers. He looks dreadfully sad and tired. Following her divorce from Prince Charles, Diana was no longer considered a Royal by the press which meant that nothing was off limits when it came to the paparazzi. During this girl's holiday, the press climbed a wall to take snaps of Diana as she lay in the sun without her bikini top. Pictures of her were selling for thousands and everyone was after a cut.
A private life for Diana was near impossible and Prince William has vowed not to let "history repeat itself. He wrote, "It is, of course, upsetting that such tactics - reminiscent as they are of past surveillance by groups intent on doing more than capturing images - are being deployed to profit from the image of young children.
In a heightened security environment, such tactics are a risk to all involved. She rarely displays anything more than a neutral smile so this photo of her clearly unhappy with the gurner was a rare moment. Prince Phillip was by her side and he advised Mattinson, "Don't stay like that for too long or your face will stay like that.
Mattinson has been crowned the winner a total of 16 times proving that the Queen was in the presence of a true professional. Although she probably would prefer if this moment was forgotten about. Princess Diana started a romantic affair with Dodi Al Fayed, the son of Harrod's boss and multi-millionaire Mohammad Al Fayed, and the photos did not please Royal aides.
Diana appeared to be relaxing with her new beau as she was topless and they were also caught constantly frolicking with each other on board the luxury yacht. In , Diana and Al Fayed both died when their car crashed into a wall, while they were being chased by the paparazzi on motorbikes through a tunnel in Paris.
Diana's brother, Lord Earl Spencer, revealed during a TV interview after his sister's death, "Diana was truly, repeatedly traumatized by the worst aspect of the paparazzi, particularly after she effectively left the royal family. He added, "I remember Diana telling me one of the worst paparazzo guys in London had actually said to her, 'I'll be there every day of your life until you're dead, and then I'll be filming your grave. Zara Phillips, the second child and only daughter of Princess Anne, is currently 16th in line to the throne. During her teenage years, she had a rebellious side but nobody suspected she would break Royal protocol by piercing her own tongue when she was years-old.
She was labeled the "Royal Rebel" by the media and made headlines for her unruly behavior before her cousin Prince Harry could even get a look in. Zara doesn't have a Royal title by the request of her own parents.
She told The Daily Express , " I've had a great time not having a title. As 72 million people watched the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, there were many gasps of astonishment as Princess Beatrice stepped out of her car. Her hat, which was designed by Philip Treacy, was compared online to a toilet seat, an octopus and was even granted its own Twitter account by pranksters online.
Treacy revealed to The Observer that he designed the hat with her Royal heritage in mind. He believed she looked like a "beautiful, exotic, Victorian doll. Discussing the backlash surrounding the hat, he argued, "She is only 22 and there was a little bit of bullying going on.
In the future, we'll look back and think she looked wild. Still, to this day, nobody understands what was going through Prince Harry's mind when he decided to dress in a Nazi uniform complete with offensive Swastika.
The outfit was worn at a private costume party just days before the annual Holocaust Memorial Day. Harry faced a further backlash when he did not come forward with a public apology.
He realizes it was a poor choice of costume. It was clearly in bad taste, especially in the run-up to holocaust memorial day on the 27th of this month, which the Royal Family will be taking a leading role in commemorating. Although we all admire Harry's sense of humor - this distasteful costume was a step too far for many. Share Tweet Email Comment Share.
