So! As you know, the future Queen of England wasn't about to let some nosy paps and a zealous editor get away with the topless photo scandal untouched!
Oh no no no!
Kate Middleton and the royals immediately enlisted the help of their legal team to pursue action against the French edition of Closer magazine on Friday.
On Monday, their attorneys met in court right outside of Paris to commence the case. And Kate's legal reps weren't sugarcoating it — what happened was f***ed up!
Kate was sunbathing on a private estate. Celebrity photographers could only capture the images of a topless Duchess using long lenses. Total invasion of privacy!!
Aurelien Hammelle argued:
"[These photos] violated [Kate and are a] grotesque breach of privacy [taken during a] highly intimate moment. She's a young woman, not an object."
Hammelle is seeking an injunction to pull all of the magazines from the store as quickly as possible.
They also made sure to note that this unfortunate incident took place just days within the 15th anniversary of Princess Diana's death (which also involved snooping paps and France).
We're betting on the Royals' side in this case!
