Consider yourselves WARNED!
The LAPD, in conjunction with the US State Department, are making the rounds through an upscale El Lay neighborhood to put residents on alert. Prince William and Kate Middleton are coming to town and they'll be attending a swanky Hollywood soiree in the area. Neighborhoods have been advised to look out for photogs and report them to authorities immediately.
The event, hosted by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, will have its fair share of photographers on hand, but its the sneaky, sneak paparazzi that has the State Dept. concerned for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. They've announced that they will arrest ANYONE who trespasses on private property to get a pic of the pair.
Sounds like its time to get out the telephoto lens, ladies and gents! This shot is going to be harder than any you've tried to get before! Britney Spears with a new guy? Piece of cake! Lindsay Lohan getting arrested? Child's play! Snooki's cookie? Old news!
It's all about Willy and Katie makin' with the royal cuddling!!!
