PAPARAZZI GONE TOO FAR?: PRINCESS KATE SUES FRENCH MAGAZINE THAT PUBLISHED HER NUDE PHOTOS
Prince William along his wife, the future Queen of England Kate Middleton have launched an all out war against the French magazine “Closer” that published nude photographs of Kate. She was sunbathing at the chateau of a family member when a photographer captured her topless. The royal family released the following statement:
“Their Royal Highnesses have been hugely saddened to learn that a French publication and a photographer have invaded their privacy in such a grotesque and totally unjustifiable manner. The incident is reminiscent of the worst excesses of the press and paparazzi during the life of Diana, Princess of Wales, and all the more upsetting to The Duke and Duchess for being so. Their Royal Highnesses had every expectation of privacy in the remote house. It is unthinkable that anyone should take such photographs, let alone publish them.”
Wow. This was quite ballsy of the photogs. I understand it’s a free country and these kind of pictures really sell for the big bucks, but this is the Prince and Princess. What do you all think? Do they not get a free pass because they’re royalty? If you had the pictures, would you have sold them..even understanding how great the risks could be?
