The royal family is facing yet another nude scandal as pictures of the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton have hit the streets of France. The French magazine ‘Closer’ has published series of nude photos of the Duchess sunbathing topless on Friday during a private holiday with her husband the Prince Williams. This is the second scandal following the recently published nude photos of her brother in-law Prince Harry, who was also caught off guard naked at a private party in Las Vegas.
Closer, a weekly round-up of celebrity gossip, ran a five-page spread of photos of Middleton relaxing topless with Prince William on a balcony at a 19th century hunting lodge in southern France, said to be owned by a son of the late Princess Margaret. Under the headline “Oh my God!”, the photos show the Duchess removing her bikini top then relaxing on a sun lounger, apparently oblivious to paparazzi lurking nearby as the pair vacationed at the property in early September.
The royal couple, who are on a tour of southeast Asia, learned of the magazine spread while in Malaysia and were angry and sad their privacy had been breached, a royal source said, adding the pictures were believed to be genuine.
