Despite the Palace’s victory in obtaining an injunction preventing French title Closer from further publication of the topless photos taken of Kate Middleton while she was sunbathing with Prince William in the South of France, still more European tabloids have made the decision to print the controversial images.
The latest magazine is Denmark’s Se Og Hoer, who today followed their Swedish sister publication in running the photos within a special supplement, which reportedly contains 60 or 70 of the 240 images they were offered. Editor-in-chief Kim Henningsen explained his reasoning to CNN as such:
“It’s a set of unique photos from an A-class celebrity. We are a leading gossip magazine in Denmark, and it is my job to publish them. If the British royal family want to sue us, then it will happen then and we’ll deal with it.”
Well, ask and you might just receive! In addition to the injunction that has aready been granted, the royal couple are seeking criminal charges and civil damages from Closer for the alleged invasion of privacy. Se Og Hoer joins Italian rag Chi and the Irish Daily Star in flouting the Palace wishes and running the topless photos, though it’s unclear yet how much more legal action will be taken.
