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.

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…

Kate Middleton is ‘guest-editing’ HuffPo today, though once she has logged in she might want to go back and delete the site’s endless number of royally shameless clickbait articles about her “breasts”, “bottom”, “topless scandal” and “dress disaster”. Kate’s day-long reign has so far seen a 100% fall in the number of HuffPo posts featuring upskirt photos, under-age girls in bikinis, incest and photos of couples having sex. She would not be amused.
