Queen Shuns the Paparazzi

The Queen is putting out the word that snatched shots of Britain's royal family will no longer be acceptable and is seeking advice from a leading privacy attorney to explore options about preventing paparazzi from sneaking compromising shots. In recent years, the Queen was caught by a lensman wringing the neck of a dead bird and Prince Edward was photographed appearing to lash a dog with his walking stick. "They feel that being photographed going about their everyday lives is no longer acceptable," a palace spokesman said.
