Publishing the pictures has caused quite a stir, but the magazines who paid for the snaps have defended their decision to do so.
Alfonso Signorini from CHI said he has done nothing illegal and he published the 26-page photo feature to show how the royal family in Britain had modernized.
“I published them with a conviction that they are pictures of a modern contemporary duchess,” Alfonso told Sky News, which said that off-camera Signorini had described her as “resembling a Greek goddess”.
Signorini said it was legal in Italy to take photographs on “a public thoroughfare” and the photos could just as easily been taken by a member of the public standing on the road bordering Lord Linley’s Chateau d’Autet.
It has been estimated the photos were all taken from between 400m and 800m away, which would have meant a member of the public would have to have been equipped with an expensive long-lens camera.
CHI magazine – like France’s Closer magazine, which caused a furor by publishing photos of the duchess topless on Friday — is owned by former Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi‘s media company Mondadori.
Signorini said it was “a very important scoop” for the magazine which rushed out its special edition on Monday, two days ahead of its normal Wednesday publication date.
“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,” added Kim Henningsen, editor of Se Og Hor.
Henningsen had been promising to print the photos, despite the Royal Family suing the French magazine Closer over the nude photos they published of Kate and justified their publication by saying, “It’s a set of unique photos from an A-class celebrity.”
Meanwhile, Kate’s hubby Prince William has vowed to see the people responsible for taking topless pictures of his wife put behind bars.
The heir to the to the throne has even told his confidantes that he is willing to give evidence in court to help seek justice for the future Queen.
William has told pals that he will not just pursue Closer magazine in the French civil courts but will also pursue criminal action.
“I want them jailed,” William told pals.
The royal couple is currently in the middle of a nine-day Far East tour to commemorate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
“They will take any action they can within the law to seek redress,” William’s spokesman said. “They’ve been clear that they will not allow this to intrude on their enjoyment of the tour, or more importantly their work on behalf of the Queen.
“The couple always felt very strongly about privacy and harassment. It’s part of a very long-standing and heartfelt position by the Duke and Prince Harry, given their past, to do everything they can to protect themselves.”
