Public outrage over scandalous Kate Middleton photos
The British royal family is in a state of outrage and has decisively taken steps to bring legal proceedings against the French branch of the magazine “Closer” for publishing pictures of Kate Middleton, wife of British Prince William, sunbathing topless at a secluded villa in southern France. Representatives of the Duke and Duchess issued an unabashed statement detailing how they were “hugely saddened to learn that a French publication and a photographer have invaded their privacy in such a grotesque and unjustifiable manner.” Indeed, invasion of privacy will most likely be the grounds for the impending legal actions against the magazine paparazzi. The implications of this incident go much deeper for the royal family. They bring up painful memories for Princes William and Harry. Their mother, the renowned Princess Diana, died in a car crash that many have attributed to the relentless and frenzied pursuit of the media interfering with the driver’s ability to perform his duty. From the time they married, Prince William had stated that he wished to shield Middleton from the media onslaught that plagued his mother.
