French Court Shuts Down Publication of Kate Middleton Topless Pics

Breaking News 0918_kate_closer
A French court just put the kibosh on publication of the Kate Middleton topless pics, but the victory is kinda like plugging a dike which keeps springing leaks.

The court called the invasion of Kate and Prince William“s privacy a “brutal display” and ordered Closer Magazine to immediately turn over all digital copies of the pics …. or else.  The “or else” is a $13,100 daily fine.

Here”s the problemo.  The pics have also been published in Italy and Ireland and the ruling doesn”t cover those magazines.

The palace also plans to file a criminal complaint.  It appears the photog got the shots courtesy of a telephoto lens as they sunbathed on the balcony of a remote French chateau.
