Context is all. Harry invited trouble into his hotel room. Kate and William are a married couple who thought they had privacy and neither has shown any propensity towards inviting the media (in whatever form) into their hotel room (or in this instance, a friend's posh pad).
However, where do we draw the line between a bit of arsing about and pee taking and what is genuinely offensive? There was plenty of mickey taking over Prince Harry (and his genetalia) loads. Why should we not have a bit of a joke if the victim of the photos is a woman? Isn't that false and not a little bit patronizing?
I wonder how any man who was sharing a private time with a woman he loved (as opposed to a woman he just wanted sex with) would view knowing that some unknown bloke had been up a tree pointing a wide angled lense at his partner? I would imagine that unless said man was a sleezebag himself, he would be angry, upset and protective. Just because the husband happens to be royalty does not give loony pervs the right to do their thing freely.
