Kate & William Get €1,500,000 Privacy Judgement Ruling Tomorrow

In the summer of 2012 Closer magazine published photographs of the Duchess of Cambridge topless during the couple’s holiday in France. The Duchess’s chest exposure angered the couple and they went to the French courts to avail of strict privacy laws. They claimed €1.5 million in damages at the Criminal Court in Nanterre, near Paris. Their lawyer Jean Veil read to the court a letter in which William denounced the pictures as “particularly painful, because they remind us of the harassment at the origin of the death of the Princess Diana, twenty years ago, in a chase pursuit with paparazzi.” The ruling is expected tomorrow… 

Two representatives of Closer – Laurence Pieau, editorial director, and Ernesto Mauri, editor – and two paparazzi from the Parisian agency Bestimage, Cyril Moreau and Dominique Jacovides, are being prosecuted for infringement of privacy or complicity.  The timing of today’s baby announcement from the couple is either a coincidence or a clever misdirection, depending on your level of cynicism…

Quote of the Day

Paul Dacre on the Daily Mail’s future support for Brexit…

“…what moves me most are the countless messages from readers worried about whether the Mail will continue its support for EU withdrawal. My answer to them — and others — is unequivocal. Support for Brexit is in the DNA of both the Daily Mail and, more pertinently, its readers. Any move to reverse this would be editorial and commercial suicide.”
