Kate Middleton Bottomless Photos: ‘Se og Hør’ Magazine Publishes Supposedly Naked Pics Of Duchess

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on September 29, 2012

As fans of the Duchess of Cambridge, we were kind of hoping the Kate Middleton topless pics scandal had lurched its way to an end after the Palace sued the bejesus out of Closer magazine, the French tabloid that originally published the photos.

But even though Closer got an official injunction, other European tabloids like Chiwent ahead and published the photos. One of them, the Danish magazine Se og Hør,ran a series this week that promised photos of Kate Middleton completely nude — not just topless. The grainy photos, which appear to have just made their way to the Internet on Friday, would seem to be more scandalous than the first; the mag claims they show the duchess not just topless, but sans her bikini bottoms as well.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have won an injunction in a French court preventing celebrity magazine Closer from publishing further paparazzi shots of the duchess sunbathing topless.

Mondadori France, Closer’s publishing company, will be fined €10,000 per day if it publishes any more photographs following Tuesday’s judgment or transmits them to any third party via email or any other means.

Mondadori, owned by former Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi, will also have to pay €2,000 towards legal fees as part of the ruling following a civil action.

A court in Nanterre, near Paris, opened a separate criminal investigation on Tuesday into charges that Closer and a photographer breached the privacy of the duke and duchess by publishing the topless photos. Read the rest of this entry »

Kate Middleton Topless Photos: Nude Images Of The Duchess Of Cambridge Published In French Magazine Closer

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on September 15, 2012

French tabloid Closer magazine published a series of photos of Kate Middleton sunbathing topless on Friday, sending shockwaves around the world and provoking a stern statement from the palace as the royal family still reels from the Prince Harry naked photo scandal.

Closer‘s grainy photos (obviously taken with a long lens) depict Kate Middletonsunbathing topless with Prince William on a balcony at a 19th century hunting lodge in southern France, in early September. “OH MY GOD!”, the cover breathlessly proclaims of the “world exclusive,” on top of a montage of uncensored pictures. Inside, there’s a five-page spread of the couple relaxing, obviously oblivious to the lurking paparazzi. In one photo, Middleton is seen removing her bikini top; in another, she’s seen rubbing suntan lotion on Will’s back. In another, William rubs suntan lotion on her almost-bare bottom. Closer also said Kate was spotted smoking a cigarette as the couple walked out of nearby Marseille airport where they arrived on a commercial flight.

In a swift move, St. James Palace fired off a statement condemning the photos:

“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.” Read the rest of this entry »

FHM 100 Sexiest Women In The World: Tulisa Crowned Winner (PHOTOS)

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on May 2, 2012

Proving once again that a sex tape doesn’t have to be the nail in the career coffin, Tulisa has come out on top on this year’s FHM 100 Sexiest Women in the World poll.

The former N-Dubz star beat two-time winner Cheryl Cole into second place and stole the crown from last year’s winner, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.

Commenting on her win, Tulisa said: “Thank you so much for voting for me. It’s a true honour and definitely a lovely confidence boost. I’m proud of me and I am who I am. I know that I’m marmite and I wouldn’t wanna be anything less or anything more, I’m just myself.

“The FHM shoot is without a doubt the sexiest thing I’ve ever done. I believe in embracing being sexy but I’m not one to agree with stripping off for the cameras, I like to be more subtle than that as these shots show. This is an award that will stay on the mantelpiece probably for the rest of my life.”

Tulisa’s victory makes it the fourth victory in a row for Brit girls. Cheryl Cole made history in 2010 by becoming the first British woman to win the prestigious accolade for two consecutive years, before model and Transformers star Rosie Huntington-Whiteley took last year’s title.

Kate Middleton was greeted by thousands of admirers in Liverpool as she flew solo for a string of royal engagements on Valentine’s Day.

William, the Duke of Cambridge managed to send a card and flowers to his other half for the romantic holiday despite being 8,000 miles away in the Falklands, but Kate was also presented with cupcakes, flowers and adoring crowds as she arrived in Merseyside.

The Duchess also toured Alder Hey hospital burns and surgery unit, bringing some sunshine to the children suffering from disfiguring injuries on the ward.

Kate Middleton: The Best YouTube Spoofs (VIDEO)

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on January 9, 2012

Happy birthday, Kate! (We can call you that, right?)

Yes, The Artist Formerly Known As Kate Middleton – and now as The Duchess Of Cambridge – turns 30 today. And what better way to celebrate than to slip into size zero lingerie and pour champagne over poor people compile a bunch of the silliest, funniest spoof videos about her. We’re sure it’s what she’d want us to do.

Unfortunately due to embedding restrictions, we can’t include the Saturday Night Live skit in which Kate (played by Anne Hathaway) meets the Queen and Prince Philip for the first time. But we highly recommend you click here to watch it.

After you’ve watched all the videos below, of course.

They include the marvellous Robin Cooper (aka Robert Popper)’s stint as a royal correspondant, Barbershopera‘s ode to the royal bride, a very funny Harry Potter spoof from a Dutch TV show (no, really) – and of course, the one that made it acceptable to take the mick out of Kate et al in the first place: the T-Mobile Royal Wedding Dance video.

Enjoy, peasants!

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on December 7, 2011

Prince Harry appears to have struck up a romance with Pippa Middleton as the pair share an intimate moment.

But all is not as it seems, as the lookalike couple are promoting the work of artist Alison Jackson who has become famous for her staged photos.

Harry double Roddy Walker affectionately kisses Miss Middleton lookalike Hannah Williams on the cheek as the couple visit London’s Soho in a spoof tour to promote the artist’s latest book Exposed!.

In another scene, Harry, wearing a mock-up of the Blues and Royals’ officer’s uniform, links arms with Miss Middleton to sip champagne.

The book is billed as a look behind the headlines with a collection of the best stories from 2011.

It includes a series of other lookalike figures, from the Miliband brothers, Ed and David, arm-wrestling for the leadership of the Labour Party to David and Victoria Beckham picking out names for their baby girl.

Jackson’s many previous photo stunts have included lookalikes of Tony and Cherie Blair and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Zara Phillips wedding: Queen’s eldest granddaughter goes from renegade royal to Mike Tindall’s housewife

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on July 30, 2011



As the Queen’s eldest granddaughter and 13th in line to the throne she could have led a life of pomp and privilege before marrying some wealthy foreign prince or a millionaire magnate.






But when Zara Anne Elizabeth Phillips MBE walks down the aisle after tying the knot in Edinburgh today she will be plain Mrs Mike Tindall – housewife, horsewoman and homebody.

And that’s just how this fiercely independent young woman has always wanted it to be. For Zara, 30, is the reluctant princess who ripped up the rule book of her ancestors and snubbed her nose at stuffy protocol.

At 17 she flaunted her tongue piercing at her uncle Charlie’s 50th birthday party.

Two years later she hired a waiter in a leather thong to serve drinks to pals as they giggled over sex toys at an Ann Summers party.

And the whole nation knew when her first serious relationship fell apart because Zara was seen brawling in the street, punching and kicking her man.

Kate Middleton and family may have been phone hacking victims

The Duchess of Cambridge and her family may have been victims of the phone hacking scandal.

By Roya Nikkhah and Robert Mendick

The Sunday Telegraph understands that the Duchess, her family and many members of the Royal household with close

connections to senior royals have been targeted and that the extent of the hacking within royal circles was much more widespread than originally thought.

It came as the former wife of George Best said she believed the footballer’s death had been hastened by alleged hacking thoughout the early part of the decade.

The initial investigation into phone hacking identified only five victims –Prince WilliamPrince Harry and three royal aides – who were targeted by the private investigator Glenn Mulcaire and the News of the World’s royal editor, Clive Goodman.

Royal aides have confirmed that the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall have recently been approached by the police in connection with the latest investigation.

But it is now believed that Mulcaire and Goodman also accessed the voicemails of many more royal officials and members of the Royal Family together with a wide circle of their family and friends.

Earlier this month, Guy Pelly, a close friend of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, launched a civil case against the News of the World over allegations of phone hacking.

It is understood that the police have recently contacted many royal officials to inform them that their voicemails were intercepted. Read the rest of this entry »

boost the country’s commercial interests abroad.

By , Royal Correspondent

Following the success of their recent tour of North America, where the couple carried several engagements in Los Angeles to highlight British business, Prince William and the Duchess will consider proposals by the Foreign Office of overseas tours aimed at promoting British firms.

A royal aide said: “It is not something that William or Catherine had done before LA, but they have genuinely enjoyed being ambassadors for the UK and flying the flag for British business in America, and it is definitely something they will start to do more of.

“It will not always be about just going to realms in the future. They will now start to visit countries of strategic importance to the United Kingdom with the purpose of meeting the Foreign Office’s commercial objectives. Just as the Prince of Wales regularly meets with corporate and environmental leaders during his overseas tours to highlight British trade and investments, so the couple will begin to emulate this approach through the prism of their own interests.” Read the rest of this entry »
