French Tabloid Involved in Kate Middleton Topless Photo Controvery

Posted on the 17 September 2012 by Silyasa

Over the weekend, the web went abuzz after the supposed topless photos of Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, surfaced on the internet and was even featured on the front page of a French tabloid magazine. Soon after, several other tabloids and websites in other parts of Europe started posting the photos, too, prompting the Palace to take action about it.

The controversy is just another one in a slew of scandal that hit the royal family. Just recently, Prince Harry was also involved in another scandal while he was out partying in Las Vegas wherein naked pics of the prince was captured and spread over the internet.

The French tabloid was the one that took the most hit after the controversy involving Kate’s photos. The mag was quick to issue an official statement in response to the criticism they received.

The statement notes: “Following comments received after the publication of photos of Kate and William in Closer magazine France, we would like to make the following clarifications: This is the French edition of Closer and not the English edition. The photos we chose are by no means degrading. They show a young couple on vacation, beautiful, in love, living a normal life.”

A source close to the couple noted that both Kate and William are “furious” about the release of such photos. In fact, they are planning to take legal action for those who published the photos and are continuing to spread it.

A rep from the Palace has confirmed that “legal proceedings for breach of privacy” had been forwarded by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge against the Closer Magazine France and its publishers.
