French Magazine filed court case regarding publishing Kate Middleton's half nude photos

Wednesday, 03 May 2017 - 13:12


In 2012, photos were published by a French gossip magazine of Kate Middleton sunbathing topless, outraging the royal family.

The invasion of privacy case that stemmed from those pictures has finally made it to court and three photographers appeared in a French court today to begin a trial pertaining to the controversial snapshots.

The photos were published a year after Kate Middleton married Prince William. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge didn't attend the trial outside Paris on Tuesday.

The pictures of Kate were taken during their summer vacation in France's southern Provence region in a remote home. 

At the time, the royals called the images a "grotesque and totally unjustifiable" invasion of Kate's privacy.
