Kate Middleton and Prince William are warned about being desperate for media coverage after two decades.

At present, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge always want to enjoy their privacy. They rarely share photos of their kids and they never look at the camera when they attend events.

Just recently, the family released images of their family at the Chelsea Flower Show. Royal photographer Ian Lloyd commented and warned the couple that their bid for privacy could backfire to them in 20 years time.

“I think they have to remember in 20-years time when they are in their late 40’s or early 50’s or whatever it is, they will desperate for the press coverage, because the press coverage will have moved on to other people, that is what happens,” Lloyd told Sky News.

Lloyd recalled a moment when Queen Elizabeth II was in her 60s and they were gathering around. There were about three photographers and everybody was photographing Princess Diana and Sarah Ferguson and not Her Majesty.

“In 20-years time when they launch a crusade like this, mental health and so on, the press won’t be interested, because they go for the more photogenic ones,” Lloyd explained.

“20-years ago, Princess Anne making a speech about prison reform would get covered in the press, now it doesn’t because she is the not the young attractive one.”

Meanwhile, Angela Levin, author of “Conversations with the Prince” said earlier that the attitude of shunning the press is visible in both the Cambridges and Sussexes. The royal expert insisted that Prince William, Middleton, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are very different from Prince Charles and Queen Elizabeth II, especially since the latter want photographers to be present wherever she goes.

Levin felt that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex don’t want the same media attention because they don’t want to be pestered. She reminded the two couples that they need the press because “it is the lifeblood for these charities.”

On Monday, Middleton’s garden, which she co-designed with the Royal Horticultural Society and award-winning landscape architects Andrée Davies and Adam White, was unveiled at the Chelsea Flower Show. Queen Elizabeth II attended the annual event to support the duchess. Middleton was caught on camera giving the monarch a kiss and performing a perfect curtsy when Her Majesty arrived.
