On special occasions, Prince William would allow the press to photograph him. He explained his decision:
"The media have left me alone while I have been at Eton, for which I am grateful. But I knew there would be a lot of media interest in my 18th, and I didn't want a whole host of media involved. Neither did I want any distractions as I was revising for my A-levels. So, I agreed to allow one photographer and a TV cameraman to spend a little time with me at Eton."
Lucky for us, these photos were amazing, like this one above taken of Wills at Eton.
