Kate Middleton’s Topless Photos Taken Down
The photos showing Katel Middleton’s bare breasts have been taken down from the French Closer magazine website, the media reports.
The French version of Closer has removed its collection of pics of Kate and her husband Prince Williams that were allegedly taken from roughly half a mile away while the pair were catching some rays while on vacation in the south of France, E! Online states.
In a statement with a regular photograph of the Duchess of Cambridge, the magazine doesn’t say exactly what led to the decision. It’s not a wonder if the lawsuit by the British Royal Family might have factored into the decision to remove the highly embarrassing photos of the Duchess sunbathing with her new husband. The British version of Closer was quick to distance themselves from the controversy.
“Following comments received after the publication of photos of Kate and William in Closermagazine France, we would like to make the following clarifications: This is the French edition of Closer and not the English edition,” the mag stated. “The photos we chose are by no means degrading. They show a young couple on vacation, beautiful, in love, living a normal life.
The article reports that the couple recently vacationed in the south of France.” On Friday, Sept. 14, the U.K.-based Bauer Media, which licenses the Closer brand to the French publication, publicly denounce the decision to run the pics and stated that the company had demanded the tabloid pull them down from its website and “desist in publishing them any further.” “We deplore the publication of these intrusive and offensive pictures,” Bauer said. “We have absolutely no control over the editorial decisions of Closer France.
In the light of their publication, we are now urgently discussing this matter with our licensee and reviewing the terms of our licence agreement with Closer France.”
