Her Majesty instructed a lawyer, Gerrard Tyrrell, to intervene and prevent the publication of those private snaps. The 2005 documentary Chasing the Royals reveals that Mr. Tyrrell threatened all the major British media organizations not to publish the photographs but they did appear in the German press.

Niraj Tanna, the famous photographer who took the shots, stated in the documentary:

They [the royals] do not want any private, unofficial photographs released to the press whatsoever. So they are clamping down like there is no tomorrow. If I’m on a public footpath, I would assume it is all fine.

Mr. Tanna has faced the royals’ lawyers once again when he was asked to stop ‘harassing’ Kate and William’s son, Prince George.
