Topless Royal Photos to Be Published in Sweden, Denmark

Editor thinks complaints are overblown

A Swedish celebrity magazine published topless photos of Britain's likely future queen Wednesday, and its sister publication in Denmark said it would do the same later this week.

The unauthorized photos have already been widely published in France, Italy, Ireland and on the Internet, despite efforts by Prince William and Kate Middleton to halt their usage.

The latest publication in Sweden's Se & Hor came as French police opened a criminal investigation into whether the photos — which first appeared in an edition of the French Closer magazine — were an invasion of privacy.
