What hypocritical oafs. Brits have placed CCTV cameras on every corner to monitor the public, and they shiat themselves when someone invades the Royal family's privacy in a FOREIGN COUNTRY. Sorry, assholes, but your privilege only goes so far.

I'm no fan of the work-shy Middleton leech or her flat-arsed, spanner-faced sister, but she wasn't in a public place (or on a balcony). Being beside a pool at a private home half a mile from the nearest road is not public. She has a reasonable expectation of privacy. I think the big fuss is being made because her husband's mother was killed while being chased by paps and they want to make it clear that a repeat of the same is not acceptable.

grimlock1972: i was going to make my same old gripe about not taking pics you do not want to get out but it doesn't apply here.

the paparazzi needs to be prosecuted for criminal trespass.

I refuse to call people who take photos of celebs for sale to magazines and etc Photographers.


Pictures taken from a public street when you're outside in plain view showing your goods is not trespassing.

Honey, if you don't want pictures of your titties taken don't go out on a balcony topless. The pictures were taken from a public road, not from some guy "invading your privacy". How much privacy can you expect standing outside with your titties flapping in the breeze?

whidbey: The US and England could go to war over this.
Pity. For them.


There is only one group of people that care less about the dignity of the Royals than the Americans. That group is the British.

Albeit it's not so much that we don't care as that we laugh at the idea that any of them but Elizabeth even knows how to spell 'dignity'.

Actually you SHOULD worry about just that if you are the Princess of England and you are outside naked.

They are owed nothing.


Considering the cost of the British royals vs amount of work they're expected to do, you'd think that the lot of them would get naked for you on command and do a little dance.

Print, not internet, is what I understand the injunction to be targeting.

According to BBC coverage today, this will likely end up with the publisher making an apology and paying the couple. Nobody will go to jail. So basically she'll get paid for posing topless but come across as a victim rather than a woman of questionable morals.

It was a public road half a mile away, and France also has pretty strict privacy laws, although it sounds like the fines aren't enough to prevent a magazine from publishing these photos anyway.

They would get a lot more mileage and a lot less notoriety over it if they would act as if it were no big deal and to admonish the press with "please stop doing this kind of stuff. Really? Guys... it isn't kindergarten anymore. Grow up. Sometimes people are naked. Deal with it."

It's not that. It's far more simple. She's hot and an extremely rare form of utterly unattainable, people want to see her naked. A lot of folks, myself included, would have a good chuckle at the royal family destroying itself, but that's not what's going on here.

I don't think many of the people who want to look at the royal tits actually wish her any harm, psychological or otherwise.

Taken from a public road with what appears to be a 600m lens in mediocre light at ISO 12400. Fark the paparazzi.

Bull. The royals are also supposed to pay for various parts of te civil government. If the Civil List act wasn't agreed to by the next monarch, that monarch would be bankrupt almost instantly. The deal gives to elected government more power in exchange for paying for things the royals are supposed to pay for and paying royals a salary.
