Kate Middleton is one step closer to achieving justice after intrusive photographs of her sunbathing were controversially published in France last September.
It’s emerged today that two people are being charged in the scandal – the publisher of Closer magazine and a photographer at regional newspaper La Provence. Both are being charged with ‘invasion of privacy’. If found guilty, they could each be fined up to £38,000 and face up to five years in prison.
The pictures were taken last year while the Duchess Of Cambridge was enjoying the sun while on a private holiday at the Chateau d’Autet in Provence with Prince William. St James’ Palace said: “The ongoing legal process is a matter for the French authorities.”
Courts in France banned more pictures of the Duchess Of Cambridge being published, while British magazines and newspapers refused to print them.
According to a survey by YouGov, a whopping seven million people have seen the topless pictures online – that’s one in five adults in Britain. We’ll bring you more news as we hear it…
