Queen calls halt to pap photos

THE Queen has warned newspapers against publishing paparazzi photos of members of the royal family.

The hard line follows exasperation about intrusion into the private lives of the royal family.

The Queen’s lawyers have contacted newspapers informing them of privacy obligations under their own code of practice.

The move is thought to have the full support of The Prince of Wales and Princes William and Harry.

But campaigners Republic, who have called for the monarchy to be replaced with an elected head of state, said the royal family must remain open to scrutiny.
