LONDON – Britain’s Prince William and his wife Catherine feel “anger and disbelief” and are consulting French lawyers after a magazine Friday published topless pictures of her, a royal source told AFP.

“We now believe the photographs are genuine,” the source said on condition of anonymity. “Their (William and Kate’s) general feeling is anger and disbelief. We feel a red line has been crossed.”

“In terms of next steps we are consulting with French lawyers as to what the options are.”

The French version of Closer magazine printed photos on the front cover and inside on five pages of Catherine wearing just the bottoms of a black and white bikini while on holiday with William in Provence in the south of France.

The couple are currently in Malaysia on a tour to mark the diamond jubilee of William’s grandmother Queen Elizabeth II.

    These royals seems naive.. they for sure know that Paparazzi are always on their heels. Why then frolic in a beach or at a pool with just the bottom part of a bikini? May I see the pics?.. hehehe

    • andresa igbac

       it was a private place.

      that`s the problem with commoners..no matter how they try to act royal, their upbringing will always come out from time to time.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_EDXEVEFHW2ZT5VWHDWBNM6XGE4 RyanE

        Hmm.. is she a commoner, not of royal blood?

      • panhase

        Commoners, royals? Are these different species? Are we not all human beings?

  • Jesse_Bruce_Pinkman

    Do these people not have the idea yet of who they are? I mean, why would you even go topless in some faraway place if you cannot even be safe from being photographed at your own home?

    • andresa igbac

       parang di ko magets ang point mo iggy.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_EDXEVEFHW2ZT5VWHDWBNM6XGE4 RyanE

        He meant if there’s a chance that somebody can be photographed even while at home, the higher will be the chance that somebody can be photographed when outside of his or her home.

      • Jesse_Bruce_Pinkman

        And there’s even a bigger chance that paparazzi will go to great lengths just to get a Royal in an uncompromising situation.

    • Diepor

      I wouldnt call France a far away place.

      • Jesse_Bruce_Pinkman

        Of course, if you live in France.

    • Diepor

      England and France is close .

  • panhase

     If this Kate does not want to be photographed topless then maybe she should not go topless.

  • dodong1

    show some pictures please..

  • wawa2172

    Show some nipples please. Topless  just an ordinary things being done by women nowadays…of course if you are in France. If you are enjoying a swim in famous Timoga Pools in Iligan City..women are in Levi jeans and Giordano shirt pa when swimming..sure they not wearing doll shoes and sunglasses…ha ha ha. May entrance fee but libri ang laba na walang sabon…only in my beloved city.

  • badudski

    These man-made godesses! Such hypocrisy characteristic of  British royalty. Abolish this royalty and distribute their wealth to the people!
