OSLO, Norway, June 26 (UPI) -- Norway's royal family has a right to privacy even in public places, the Norwegian Press Complaints Commission has ruled.

The Royal Palace complained to the commission following a series of articles published by a weekly magazine, The Norway Post/NRK reported.

The panel ruled the magazine violated the ethical norms for the press by using telescopic lenses to snap pictures of the family through hedges and fences without their consent.

Of particular concern was a series of pictures of the Royals during a vacation at a Caribbean resort.
