Last Friday, French tabloid magazine Closer published photos of Kate Middleton sunbathing nude.
As expected, the Royal couple got litigious. They are seeking damages from Closer, they have set-up an injunction prohibiting the sale of the photos to other publications and the internet, and they have filed a separate complaint against the photographer.
An official court ruling is expected to be handed down on Tuesday. In the meantime, other publications like Italian tabloid Chi and Irish newspaper The Daily Star have run the photos, risking further legal action. The scans are also on Sex.com but please don’t tell anyone. It’s our little secret, ok?
While it has magazines flying off the shelves of newsstands everywhere, a debate on privacy has opened up.
