French Mag Publishes "Topless" Photos; Says They're of Duchess of Cambridge; Royal Couple Alleges Invasion of Privacy

The French edition of Closer magazine has published blurry photos of what the mag claims are pix of the Duchess of Cambridge, about to go topless, which a photographer took with an extreme telephoto lens while she was on holiday with her husband at the home of a cousin in France. Spokespersons for Royal Family have issued a statement indicating its outrage over the publication of the pix. Reports suggest that the couple may be looking into legal action against Closer, alleging it has invaded their privacy. Closer has responded that the photos are not shocking, but show a normal and  beautiful young couple in love, on vacation. More here from BBC News.
