Transcript of Media Non-Fiction

L.O: Read and understand texts, selecting material appropriate to purpose. To identify fact and opinion. Media and Non Fiction Write a letter to the Royal Family to argue EITHER for or against their right to have a private life away from the press. What do you think? Read the article again and underline the FACTS in one colour and the OPINIONS in another. Although not a "royalist", I find the idea of publishing these photos obscene - just as I would if any photos of my family, taken when they were on private property whilst sunbathing nude or otherwise. They would be legitimate had she been flaunting herself in a public place - but she wasn't. This just shows that some reporters and editors have no morals whatsoever.. When they held a multi-million dollar, publicly funded wedding in the streets of London and broadcasted it to the entire world as if it were something incredibly important, that's when they signed over their privacy.

How about my privacy? I had to open the news for an entire six months last year to be faced with their smarmy pictures and lame expressions.

They brought this on themselves... The paparazzi will continue to take and publish pictures of this nature for as long as the general public has an appetite to view them.

If this reality TV and celebrity-watching culture were to be smashed, and people got on with living their own lives, instead of being voyeuristic about the lives of others, there would be no market for such photos What's the link?
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are hugely saddened over the "grotesque and unjustifiable invasion of privacy" by a magazine which published topless photos of Kate, a royal spokesman says.

French publication Closer printed the pictures of the duchess, taken during their private holiday in France. The royals are now considering legal action over the case.

The BBC's Nicholas Witchell said that the royals were "incredulous that any magazine would have felt they had a justification in publishing these pictures".

"They could go to law or seek a remedy through the French court - that is a big step to take but that is clearly what is being considered now," he said.

"I have rarely heard quite such a level of publicly expressed anger that I have heard today reflecting William's feelings.

"He is absolutely determined to protect the privacy of his wife; he has always been very protective of her and that anger has mounted during the day."

Our correspondent said that the prince had a "look of absolute thunder" on his face as they left Kuala Lumpur - a stop on their nine-day tour of South East Asia - to travel to Sabah in north Borneo. Kate, meanwhile, "looked composed and was smiling", he said.

Closer editor Laurence Pieau said: "These photos are not in the least shocking. They show a young woman sunbathing topless, like the millions of women you see on beaches." She described the reaction as "a little disproportionate". "What we saw in the pictures was a young couple that have just got married, who are in love, who are beautiful. She's a princess of the 21st Century," said Pieau.

"They [the couple] are on the terrace of a mansion in the south of France which is not far from a road along which cars pass without any problem. They are visible from the street."

The photos look blurry, the BBC's Paris bureau said. There are four pages of photos of the couple, with Kate topless in several.

On the magazine's website, it says the pictures are of the couple "like you have never seen them before. Gone are the fixed smiles and the demure dresses. On holiday Kate forgets everything."

"Their Royal Highnesses had every expectation of privacy in the remote house. It is unthinkable that anyone should take such photographs, let alone publish them.

“The incident is reminiscent of the worst excesses of the press and paparazzi during the life of Diana, Princess of Wales, and all the more upsetting to the duke and duchess for being so.

A statement from the UK magazine said: "We were not offered any pictures of this nature and have no intention of publishing the photographs of the Duchess of Cambridge which have been published this morning." Kate and William angered by 'grotesque' invasion of privacy What are you being
