Paparazzi on motorbikes chased Prince William’s car through the streets of London last week, trying to get the first photos of him and his girlfriend, Kate Middleton, since the couple reunited this summer. The pursuit took place just as the government began its inquiry into the death of William’s mother, Princess Diana, who died when paparazzi were chasing her in Paris 10 years earlier. Most of the U.K. tabloids declined to run the pictures after the Press Complaints Commission called the paparazzi’s methods dangerous and unethical.
