Kate Middleton's Topless Photos Published; Editor Defends Magazine's Stance

kate middleton topless nude photo scandal closer editor statement

Kate Middleton is furious enough!

But just wait until you read this statement from Closer France's editor! It's only gonna add fuel to the fire!!

Kate's boobs are everywhere now, thanks to some nosy paps who saw her sunbathing on a private estate, and Laurence Pieau defends the magazine's actions.

After publishing the photos of a topless Kate and Will (on the cover and in a four-page-spread), Pieau says:

"These photos are not in the least shocking. They show a young woman sunbathing topless, like the millions of women you see on beaches."

Not shocking?? Then why did the magazine publish the photos with the headline that translates to "OMG! THE PHOTOS THAT WILL GO AROUND THE WORLD!" ??? Hmm??

Also, it's the royals! Of course it's shocking! C'mon now…

Meanwhile, the UK edition of the mag has released the following statement in vague opposition to the French edition:

"Closer magazine UK is published by Bauer Consumer Media. The French edition meanwhile is published under a licence by a totally different company, an Italian business called Mondadori."

"Closer magazine UK would like to make it clear that the two publications make entirely independent editorial decisions. In this respect the comments made by the Editor of the French edition which have reported in the media today do not reflect the opinions of Closer magazine UK."

"Closer magazine UK was not offered any pictures of this nature and certainly has no intention of publishing the photographs of the Duchess of Cambridge which have been published in France this morning. Closer magazine UK takes its obligations under the PCC Code extremely seriously and would never publish topless images of a member of the Royal family on its cover or otherwise."

Classy!

Obviously the Palace is super upset over all of this. And according to Kate's rep, legal action will be pursued! You can bet on that!!

UPDATE: The French editor now says there were even MORE "intimate" photos she refused to publish. Things just keep getting saucier by the minute!

    Yes, it's a shame that the press can't give people their privacy. But on the other hand, if you are one of the most famous people on the planet, and you know the paparazzi are out to get you, maybe sunbathing nude outdoors wasn't such a brilliant idea.

    Re: messygirl – True. I'm sure they will be more careful in the future.



  3. 3

    Is Kate trying to look like the Virgin Mary in that outfit? Flocking around with her tits out for everyone to see is not very vigin-ly…..



  4. 4

    The Queen "Good God, Where are Kate's tits?"



  5. 5

    These Royals have NO PROBLEM stealing money from people, by force of law, to support their Unbelievable Royal Lifestyles of Unlimited Wealth & Luxury….



  6. 6

    What's the big deal with topless tanning the the South of France? No women wear bathing tops there.
    It's not a big deal.
    Stop making such a fuss, Kate, and it will go away quickly…



  7. 7

    Kate should have taken control of the issue and made an official statement…

    Kate "Those were my tits, and they are REAL & they are FABULOUS!"

    Bloody french paps..first they kill Will's mother and now they humiliate his wife. And this is where Halle Berry wants to bring her kid because she thinks paps in the US are too invasive. Damn!
    It's true, it will go away quickly..no point in suing because that just makes the story bigger

    Okra Panfry clearly has no clue. The Royal family do not steel, and your accusation of such in unfounded and undoes any valid point you follow with.

    As Kate is a Royal does this mean she is not allowed to sunbathe nude in a private residence? When does a peeping tom become a pap? If she was on a public beach i would say fair enough take pictures, but this is in a private residence. Are our homes no longer private?

    This will just mean that France is lost as a holiday destination, and Closer Magazine France will soon be paying out huge sums of compensation. Personally, in times gone, wars have been started for less.

    OMG SERIOUSLY people leave them alone their just human beings spending a holiday. So what if their topless or naked nobodies perfect so why blame it on them.You people aren't good either blaming it on them. SHEESH!

    the papparazi used a long lens from EXTREMELY far away. she was not dancing around in Vegas naked or parading around the street with her t*ts out. she was in a private estate and certainly entitled to privacy as she would be if she were on her toilet. this is disgraceful and I would have thought the french press would have had more respect given what they did to william's mother.

    Yes I feel it is a real shame and a breech of privacy. But if your one of the most famous people on the planet right now, and you know the paparazzi are out to get any shot they can.What posesses you to go topless. I know we should all do what ever we want - but sometimes you just cant and if you want to, you have to face up to the reality of what it will and who it will have an impact on!

    She was visiting the Assyakirin Mosque, the largest mosque in Malaysia.

    In any European resort topless bathing is common place, it's only the anal retentives who have an issue with it. She has tits, so what? Pathetic over reaction to a non-issue. A story made for it's own sake. Puritanical nonsense! Grow the f-up, society.
