Duke and Duchess Win Injunction Over Photographs In French Court

A French court has granted the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge that sought-after injunction against the French magazine Closer; the magazine published photographs of the Duchess without her bathing suit-top while she was enjoying the sun at a relative's home in southern France. The injunction applies only to France but does order the mag to hand over the original pix and forbids it to publish the photos that have already appeared. More here from the BBC.

However, other European magazines have already reprinted the pictures, including Chi, the Italian publication owned by former PM Silvio Berlusconi.
