More topless photos of Kate Middleton in Italian magazine, as Wills sets to sue
17 September 2012 09:58 AM
After French magazine Closer published topless pictures of Kate on holiday last week, Italian magazine Chi is planning a 26-page photo special of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on holiday in the south of France.
Set to run in an edition next week, editor Alfonso Signorini said not even a call from the Queen could stop him printing the paparazzi shots. He added:
"If I had had more scandalous photos I would have willingly published them."
St James's Palace announced this weekend that it is suing original publisher Closer for what it described as a 'gross invasion of privacy'. They confirmed that the royal couple would be making a criminal complaint against the photographer or photographers responsible for taking the pictures.
Nearly two decades ago, Princess Diana sued the Sunday Mirror and Daily Mirror over secretly-taken pictures of her in a gym and won an injunction preventing further publication.
No newspaper or magazine in Britain has announced plans to publish the offending photographs - not even The Sun.
