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 »

Prince Harry And Pippa Middleton Strike Up Romance? (Pictures)

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.
