The Princess and the Paparazzi

Imagine Kate at topless beaches,
being demure and keeping her clothes on
but in the privacy of her estate,
comfortable undressing
in front of her husband
or in front of her friends to avoid
the tan marks from the sun
all of this in harmless comfort
beyond opened doors and casual
observers, but when the paparazzi
is on the prowl they can be several

feet away, sitting in a tree, hiding in the shrubs
with super wide lenses and telescopic viewfinders.
Like snipers in the war, assassins
of privacy, selling their shots for
voyeuristic buyers, knowing the audience
is out there and they will make a profit
because people want to see her
devoid of push-up bras and padding.

It will be the first time she is photographed topless.
no way to hide away when security wasn’t even
aware of a breach until the photos were made public.  

Sometimes being a princess and marrying the prince
is not all it is made out to be.
