Video emerges of Prince William yelling at 'disgusting' photographer he claims is stalking his children

A video has emerged of Prince William yelling at a photographer and claiming the paparazzi is "stalking" his children.

The video, which was only published a few days ago but was filmed in 2021, shows the Duke of Cambridge confronting a photographer after he and his family were filmed near Sandringham, Norfolk.

Kensington Palace said the video is a breach of privacy, with the Duke on a private bike ride with his wife and three children.

The Duke is seen remonstrating with a photographer as he tries to make a call, which is believed to be to his security.

"You want to have this altercation, you can have this altercation," Prince Williams says to the photographer in the video - which has been viewed more than 20,000 times.

The photographer defends himself, saying he didn't realise who he was when he started filming.

"I know, I just realised who it was and I have just stopped," the photographer said.

But the Duke disagrees with the photographer as the remonstrating continues.

"You came out looking for us," Prince William said as he contacts security on his phone.

The photographer continues to defend himself saying he's been nowhere near the Duke's house, but William disagrees and claims the man was "stalking" his children.

"How dare you behave like you've done with my children? How dare you," the Duke says.

"You are stalking around here looking for us and our children. I'm out for a quiet bike ride with my children on a Saturday. You won't even give me your name.

"You're outrageous, you're disgusting, you really are. How dare you behave like that?"

After making a call to his security to report the incident, the Duke says: "Thanks for ruining our day. I thought you guys had learned by now."

The Telegraph reports Kensington Palace is attempting to have the video removed from YouTube while lawyers of the Duke wrote to the photographer directly shortly after the dispute in 2021.

Kensington Palace has previously been successful in appealing for unauthorised photographs of the children to be taken down.

William has previously spoken about the dangers of social media.

"I am very concerned though that on every challenge they face – fake news, extremism, polarisation, hate speech, trolling, mental health, privacy and bullying – our tech leaders seem to be on the back foot," he said in 2018.

"Their self-image is so grounded in their positive power for good that they seem unable to engage in constructive discussion about the social problems that they are creating."

A spokesman for YouTube has not yet commented.
