Just weeks after the scandal about pictures of Britain's Prince Harry
naked in Las Vegas, a magazine has sparked fresh controversy by
publishing pictures of Prince William's wife, Catherine, topless while
vacationing. The duchess of Cambridge is "upset" with the
magazine -- a French publication called Closer, a royal source told CNN.
Palace officials, threatening legal action, have blasted what they call
a "grotesque" invasion of privacy.
The grainy pictures appear to
have been taken with a long camera lens while the couple was staying at
a private chateau in Provence, in southern France.
"hugely saddened to learn that a French publication and a photographer
have invaded their privacy in such a grotesque and totally unjustifiable
manner," a St. James's Palace spokesman said.
