Royal Blush

Advantages: Hopefully the rewards will finance breast cancer research.
Disadvantages: Life thru a lens - equals many intrusions.

Review of Was the press right to publish the naked photographs of Prince Harry and Kate Middleton?

What happened to privacy?

Advantages: Newspapers make more money
Disadvantages: Nobody needs to see photos like that

The Royal family are, of course, often in the public eye. This isn't something they are likely to forget as you can't really get much bigger than the Royal family. The Royal family go to many events and allow many photos to be taken and published but, li ...
