Palace Slams “Grotesque” Privacy Invasion
A French magazine on Friday published what appeared to be photos of Prince William’s wife Kate Middleton sunbathing topless. The photos were leaked by the mag and were reportedly taken while the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were on vacation in Provence in France at a chateau owned by Queen Elizabeth II‘s nephew, Lord Linley.
Officials said the royal family was considering legal action for a “grotesque and totally unjustifiable” invasion of privacy in the same country where William’s mother Princess Diana died while fleeing paparazzi.
The couple was “saddened” by the use of the photos, which appear genuine, royal officials said.
