Many people have asked me about or commented on my attempts to remove Junior and Princess from the public eye and in particular my decision that they will not feature in my Living TV Show or photo-shoots.

Firstly, I want to make it clear that if paparazzi pictures appear of Junior and Princess they will be without my permission. I am hopeful that the paparazzi and the media organisations that publish their pictures will respect what I am trying to achieve.

My decision to do this is made purely in the interests of Junior and Princess. They have had a lot of media exposure because of my engagement with the media and that of their father. This exposure was when they were of an age to be unaffected by it. They are older now and that exposure is starting to impact in a way that it should not for children of their age.

I am going to protect them as much as I can and allow them to grow up as normally as they can. Obviously I cannot do this alone and I have asked their father to help me in this respect. I should make it clear that if paparazzi pictures appear of Junior and Princess they will be without my permission.

A special word on my gorgeous Harvey. I will continue to do media work with Harvey to highlight issues that families coping with disability face, in particular discrimination. Harvey is an inspiration to many and I want to share that but if ever he is adversely affected I will of course move to protect him.

With love

Katie
