At present, Kate Middleton and Prince William have been demanding privacy for them and their three children. But it is claimed that the royal couple will be desperate for press coverage 20 years from now.

Royal biographer Ian Lloyd offered a word of warning to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. He said that when the couple would be in their fifties, the press would have already moved on to covering stories about the younger generation of royals.

“I remember photographing the Queen when she was in her 60s and there would be about three of us there,” he said. “Everybody would be photographing Diana and Fergie. It’s a generational thing,” he added.

Lloyd also said that in the next 20 years, the press would no longer be interested in Prince William and Kate’s mental health campaign, as well as in other stories about them. This is because the press also goes for more photogenic subjects.

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

Meanwhile, royal expert Angela Levin, author of “Conversations With The Prince,” previously highlighted the importance of the press when royals visit charities. She said that Prince William and Kate only want to use the press whenever they’re trying to promote certain causes.

“This is very different from the previous generation of Prince Charles and certainly the Queen who wanted photographers wherever she went, otherwise she didn’t feel like she was there,” she said. “I think this generation, they don’t want that. They will give their best duty, but they don’t want to be pestered otherwise.”

Levin said that Prince Harry has also been following the footsteps of Prince William and Kate in only seeking the help of the press when promoting certain causes. The royal expert stressed that the royals need the press because they are the lifeblood of the charities that are closest to their hearts.
