A stiff upper lip is needed by William and Kate - not legal action
Share This Article:
It’s not been an easy week for The Duchess of Cambridge. Coinciding with her and Prince William’s Asia Pacific Diamond Jubilee tour, it emerged last week that French Closer magazine had published photos of Kate sunbathing topless whilst holidaying in the South of France with her husband. The photos show Middleton in a series on intimate moments, relaxing in the private villa of Chateau d'Autet, and have caused an uproar in the British media, as they show the Duchess laid bare - a stark contrast to her normally controlled and immaculate public image. Closer magazine were the first to take the controversial decision to publish the uncensored photos, no less on the front cover. Hot on the heels were the Italian Press, with magazine Chi announcing that they have 200 photos of topless Kate, and their plans to publish 50 in a 26 page double special, with the headline “Court Scandal-The Queen is nude!” The Daily Irish Star have followed suit, and reports reveal that other European Countries and American publications are considering publishing the photos, though the internet is by now rife with websites showing the pictures. The details began to emerge as the week went on that the money shots had been captured by a photographer with a long lens zoom camera as the couple sunbathed, unbeknownst that they were being watched. Kate and William were staying in the Provence countryside east of Avignon, when the pictures were taken from a public road less than half-a-mile away.
