Two news stories in the Evening Standard tonight struck me, on the sweltering Jubilee Line, as having something quite remarkable in common.
The first is that of little-known paparazzi photographer Jesal Parshotam, who this morning saw the Duchess of Cambridge sneak into St Mary’s Hospital at around 5.55am. As the Standard reports, he said that he and his colleague “decided in advance we were not going to take a photo of her. I made that decision – she’s a woman in labour…. To take a picture of her would have been over stepping the mark.”
