It’s barely been a week and already the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have won their first legal battle in an attempt to block further publication of the nudie shots of Kate topless in France.
A French court ruled today that the photos must not be published again!
I guess it pays to be a Royal!
Closer magazine, the first publication to print the not-so-steamy-topless-pics was ordered to give the originals back to the Royal couple.
Damn, here in America, our royalty (i.e. Lindsay Lohan) have to beg to strip down for a magazine (i.e. Playboy.).
A royal source told BBC, “They welcome the injunction that’s been granted. They always believed the law was broken and that they were entitled to their privacy.”
The ban only covers publications within France, meaning the Italian magazine Chi (which also published MORE pictures this week) is still at large! Speaking of large...NOT her boobs! Kidding, not kidding.
The court called the nude photos a “brutal display” of the couple’s privacy.
“These snapshots which showed the intimacy of a couple, partially naked on the terrace of a private home, surrounded by a park several hundred metres from a public road, and being able to legitimately assume that they are protected from passers-by, are by nature particularly intrusive,” ruled the court.
True. Rumor has it that the photographer that snapped the pics was ? mile away!
Another thing, Closer editor in chief was hinted that she has more “intimate” photos, and the court ruling doesn’t protect against any future or new photos that may leak.
