Kensington Palace has commented on a video showing Prince William confronting a paparazzi photographer, saying that it was a breach of privacy.
The video, which was reportedly filmed in January 2021, shows the Duke of Cambridge in a row with a photographer allegedly filming his family on a bike ride near their Anmer Hall home in Sandringham.
His wife Kate Middleton can be heard saying: “We are out for a bike ride with our children, we saw you by our house.”
So there’s a film of Prince William shouting at some photographer for trying to film his kids, the guy denies that’s what he’s doing, but films the whole thing and puts it on the internet? 🤷♂️ Team @KensingtonRoyal all the way. What a piece of work.

Neither Kate nor the couple's children are visible in the video and the photographer denies he was looking for them.
Later on in the video William says: "How dare you behave like you have done with our children? How dare you? Stalking around here looking for us and our children?
“I’m out for a quiet bike ride with my children on a Saturday and you won’t even give me your name. You’re outrageous, you’re disgusting, you really are…Why are you here?
“Thanks for ruining our day…I thought you guys had learnt by now."
As reported by The Telegraph Kensington Palace said the video is a breach of the family’s privacy, and they add it was understood that staff were trying to get the video removed.
Photographers literally chased Prince William's mother to death. He is well within his rights to tell them to leave his young children alone.
