LONDON - British Prime Minister David Cameron has offered his support for the royal family in trying to persuade foreign publications not to buy paparazzi images of toddler Prince George, arguing they have a right to raise their children free of such harassment.

Cameron expressed concern Saturday for Prince William and his wife, Kate, because of the "extreme lengths" photographers have used to get images of the 2-year-old heir to the throne. He told the BBC the couple "deserve some privacy and some space."

Kensington Palace, Prince William's office, warned Friday that photographers are using increasingly dangerous tactics to get the valuable images. The palace says photographers have hidden in sand dunes and car trunks and used other children to draw Prince George into view on playgrounds.
