Royal lubricious photos

2012-09-18 04:59

I would like to express my disgust with the paparazzi who took the intrusive photos of Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton. The couple have every right to have fun, dress, sunbathe, entertain, party and love as they please in the privacy of their personal environment, without being besieged by inquisitive individuals.

Although there is a responsibility to act both in official and, where appropriate, personal capacities in a manner so meticulous that it will stand the closest public opinion, every aspect of their personal lives is not for mass consumption and they are entitled to privacy, tranquillity and time and space for being together.

It must be taken into account that the royal couple was on a private holiday and thus would be followed by the press. Granted the paparazzi’s role is to stalk famous people for any opportunity to sensationalise their every move and present it in a most salacious manner to their perverted readers. But as human beings we should show good will and restraint towards other human beings.

Famous people have the same feelings and emotions as the ordinary people in the street. They do, do, their fair share for humanity through this fame and glory. Thus we should “cut them some slack” and allow them their private space to be able to express their feelings which they would otherwise never be able to express.

The royals are most of their lives on show; trying to make the world a better place. So if as a young and newlywed married couple they wish to relax and derive pleasure by romping in a manner that makes them happy, they should be allowed to do so. The Royals were on a private holiday. They did take themselves away in a private villa and did not cavort on public beaches. Hence the actions of the paparazzi and the French magazine that published the photos are definitely wrong and should be condemned.

It’s sad to see how desperate some individuals have become to satisfy their perverted curiosity. Unfortunately, those who support and keep the paparazzi in business need to re-evaluate their moral values as the decline of good human moral values is the cause of the present global crisis.

It seems to me that the mass media places too much importance on the actions of film and sport stars and other celebrities than is necessary. There is so much more important and pressing issues to concern ourselves with than the personal lives of someone who may not have any meaningful impact on our personal lives or we will most likely never meet.

There are stories and photos of decency as well as privacy and I certainly don’t read newspapers or magazines to read gossip or to look at these sort of photos.

There can be no justification for the publication of these lubricious photos other than sensualisation, gossip, greed and it does not serve the promotion of morality of which the world is in dire need.
