A French court ruled in favor of Prince William and Kate and decided that all of the topless pics of Kate sunbathing should be handed over — are you happy for Kate?
Prince William and Kate Middleton have won! After French magazine Closer published pictures of Kate laying out topless in the South of France, Prince William filed a lawsuit against the publication and they prevailed! Read on to find out what exactly this ruling means for the royal couple.
This ruling means that Closer must turn over all the “digital copies” of the pics and must not print any more pics. Each time they print the pics, they will be fined $12,000. Unfortunately, the court ruling only affects Closer and not the other publications that printed the pics.
The pics also ran in the Irish Daily Star, and in Italy’s Chi. The couple are also seeking to punish the photographer who took as many as 200 pics of Kate. Their lawyer said that the William and Kate were enjoying a “healthy and profoundly intimate” moment at the chateau when the photos were taken.
William and Kate have been on a tour of the Far East and South Pacific to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee tour. Despite reports that claimed the balcony was visible from the road, their attorneys insist that’s false.
