Court Supports Royal Couple in Regards to Topless Photos View Count: 344

A court in France has ordered that a magazine publisher turn over all the digital copies of topless photos of Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, within 24 hours. The court also blocked publication of the ‘brutal display’ of William and Kate’s private moments. A daily fine of $13,100 will be levied on the publisher of the French magazine Closer if it does not turn over the photos that were featured in the ‘world exclusive’ issue on Friday. The pictures of Kate showed her topless while on vacation in Provence, France with Prince William.

An injunction was also issued by the court that stops Closer France from republishing the pictures on its tablet app, on its website and from re-selling them. The ruling only covers the 14 photos that were in the edition published on Friday. It is unknown if the magazine has any other photos that it did not release, which means the magazine could publish those photos if it chooses, since the ruling does not cover them.

Closer’s publisher is Mondalori, which will be fined $2,600.

“These snapshots which showed the intimacy of a couple, partially naked on the terrace of a private home, surrounded by a park several hundred meters from a public road, and being able to legitimately assume that they are protected from passers-by, are by nature particularly intrusive,” the French ruling said, according to the Associated Press. “(They) were thus subjected to this brutal display the moment the cover appeared.”

A criminal complaint will also be filed against the photographer, who has yet to be named. The lawsuit will have the goal of releasing the photographer’s name and will permit the couple to stop the pictures from being published elsewhere around the world. The photographer could be sentenced to one year in prison and large fines if the photographer is ever identified in the case.

    All Kate Middleton photos must be returned ASAP!

    St James’s Palace is suing French magazine Closer for breach of privacy over the publication of topless photos of the duchess! The royal family legal action over media coverage is surprising. In normal time, Royals crave for photos that are their direct link to the taxpayer who pays a big part of the lavish lifestyle they have.

    It’s hard to feel sympathy for the Duchess of Cambridge being pictured topless in a French gossip magazine. This is not the first time a member of the Royal Family has been photographed undress. Remember Prince Edward’s wife, the Duchess of York, Princess Diana or Prince Harry? They were all being pictured topless or naked. Why Kate did not sees it might be unwise for a future Queen to sunbathe in this terrace? Remember the couple was visible from the road. Royals should not be notice when they walk naked. This is their true nature.

    The problem is, like movies stars, royals live and die by their popularity rating. They want everybody to see them at weddings and party. The editor of Closer could be a victim, not an aggressor. Laurence Pieau is use to work with rich and famous people craving for publicity but the beautiful an in love couple in the south of France was Royals, not movies stars.

    Sending the cops to paparazzi can make Royals less desirable picture subject. If Royals make the police arrest reporters, they will not be there to take pictures of their beautiful lifestyle! Will British taxpayers, who pay for this legal battle, accept to continue to spend tens of millions of pounds each year for people who are royal pain?

    So, all Kate Middleton photos must be returned to royals ASAP! All newspapers of the world should voluntarily follow the French court order and hand Kate Middleton photos over to the royal couple. All pictures must be returned without exception. Medias should also be fined 10,000 euros per day of delay. This will remember them to never take a picture of a British Royal family member again.
