French Mag Publishes topless pics of Duchess of Cambridge

Poor soul can't now even sunbathe in private. Paparazzi with telephoto lenses pass on topless pics to the French magazine Closer, who have published.

So much for French privacy laws!

Whatever you think of the Royal Family, should a magazine be able to publish pics of anyone in such circumstances, or should we all now have to accept that photos of us doing anything at anytime can be splashed across magazines, Internet etc? What does that lead to?

Didn't Angela Merkel suffer a similar indignity when on a holiday?

Is no one in the public eye ever off duty?

I can see an argument for publishing pics of people up to no good, breaking the law etc, but surely there is a right to some privacy for everyone?

I think anyone who's in the public eye even half as much as her should be a bit more careful, unless of course they want these sort of photos to be published.

Not sure on the time frame of when they were taken, surely not after the Harry scandal?

You'll probably have seen bigger wasp stings than what she's got to offer.

Is anyone really that interested in seeing a 10 year old boy with enlarged nipples?

Since she was in a private place then I think it probably is wrong however if on a public beach or yacht at sea then no, you have to deal with it anyone can take a photo of anything they want in a public area.

I expected they'd be perkier, but I guess they'll do. This kinda matches the inexplicable hoopla over her sister's pancake ass.

Whatever you think of the Royal Family, the current Queen's ability to withstand this level of scrutiny for half a century is why she's cool.

Yes, the Royals should have to suffer this, and so should the rest of us.

Legally, in the USA anyway, no. Once you're a 'public figure', your life can basically be made a living hell.

Hey just because you think huge = shapely is no reason to expect everyone to share your tastes.

British law is somewhat different I think...as far as I understand it, if the photos are taken of a private location, where those involved can have reasonable expectation of privacy, they have a case when that privacy isn't respected. I also heard the French laws on privacy are pretty stricts and the Royals would likely win any legal case.

Re: French Mag Publishes topless pics of Duchess of Cambridge

I love how the British tabloids are all pretending they have more class for not publishing the pics. They're attacking the French magazine for doing what they would have done as well if it wasn't for the fear of being prosecuted.

I don't understand why all the fuss just because she's a royal - topless pics of 'regular' celebs get printed all the time?

Re: French Mag Publishes topless pics of Duchess of Cambridge

Well, same story as with Diana, ain't it? People will pretend to be outraged by this, throw mudpies at tabloid journalism, and then go to the shop and buy the magazine. Closer will probably have to pay a fine, but it will be nowhere near as big as the profit they will make out of publishing the photos, so what do they care?

Hiding in the bushes in the hope of taking a 'got ya' picture of a celeb is a pitiful way to make a living, but it's even sadder that we reward them by buying this junk. And if five or ten years from now we'd have a new Diana drama on our hands we'll all get angry at the media and say, "never again." But never again would last only a couple of weeks after which everything would get back to business as usual as it always has and as it always will.
