Kate Middleton Topless – A Royal Double Standard? [PHOTOS]
Just a week after pictures of a naked Prince Harry in Las Vegas were tweeted for the world to see, French photographers have snapped photos of Kate Middleton on a private yacht with Prince William. The royal family is fuming, but Kate seems to be getting more heat. Is this fair? Miguel Head, the royal couple's press secretary told US Magazine:
The incident is reminiscent of the worst excesses of the press and paparazzi during the life of Diana, Princess of Wales, and all the more upsetting to the Duke and Duchess for being so. Their Royal Highnesses had every expectation of privacy in the remote house. It is unthinkable that anyone should take such photographs, let alone publish them.
Royal officials have stressed that William and Kate should not be photographed when they are not in public.
Laurence Pieau, the editor of the magazine that published the photos defended the decision to use the topless photos, telling The Associated Press the pictures were tasteful.
For me, those pictures were not shocking. Just a beautiful couple, an in-love couple, in the south of France. Kate is the girl next door.
