French Magazine Publishes Topless Photos of the Duchess of Cambridge

Publication called a "grotesque and unjustifiable invasion of privacy"


The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are hugely saddened over the "grotesque and unjustifiable invasion of privacy" by a magazine which published topless photos of Kate, a royal spokesman says.

French publication Closer printed the pictures of the duchess, taken during their holiday at the French chateau of the Queen's nephew, Lord Linley.

The photos are blurry and taken with a long lens, the BBC's Paris bureau says.
