Law Enforcement Targeting Paparazzi During Prince William and Kate Visit

Paparazzi are going to have to stick to shots of the Kardashians getting in and out of their cars. Because when the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, aka Prince William and Kate Middleton, visit Los Angeles next month, the LAPD is going to be on the lookout for photographers.

The US State Department and LAPD have instructed law enforcement officers to warn residents in the LA neighborhood of Hancock Park that the royals will be guests of honor in their area, so they should be on the lookout for paparazzi.

The paps are pretty ballsy, and considering the lengths they go to for the perfect shot, I wouldn't put it past them to do time for getting one of the royals.

Three officers have been telling residents they will be ready to arrest any member of the paparazzi—or anyone—who trespasses on private property to get a shot. The officers have been going door-to-door in the neighborhood surrounding the British Consulate, which is in the middle of Hancock Park.

The royals will visit Santa Barbara on July 9 to take part in a charity polo match. The following night, they'll visit the inaugural British Academy of Film and Television Art's BAFTA Brits to Watch. William is BAFTA president. The couple also plans to meet inner city youths in Los Angeles on Sunday.
