The wealthy taking more than one holiday a year? Shock horror. I often wonder how people would react if our royal family behaved more like those not so long passed. Princess Margaret is a case in point (having also been photographed topless I seem to recall) who was forever jetting off to a private island or the chateau of a friend.

Kate is the future Queen of England, and she has to be much more carefull than any average person. And of course she CAN'T take her top off nowere, outside of protecting walls! This is obvious, no? There is NO LAW protecting her, because it sells for millions.

More seriousely, when takes a shower she has to close the bath'room's door!!

I just think that besides beeing at her home she could't have been in topless in any other place...even if she was 100% that they aren't any paparazzi, she should know tha outside home that is forbiden...so things happen...and I'am not blaming her but...

Sophie was taken in pic BEFORE being Erwards's wife
Diana was not taken topless
Marcia Clark is not the future Queen of England.

What I'm trying to say, is that being topless is not something bad to do. But since for a future Queen is a not acceptable behavior, SHE HAS TO DO HER UTMOST IN ORDER NEVER BE CAUGHT IN TOPLESS. So simple.

We'll stick her in a burkha then and make her wear it 24/7. Should solve the problem.

That works for doors. But bathroom windows - which in remote houses are often large and made of clear glass to let in light - have a reasonable expectation of privacy.

My heart breaks for both of them. These images will never go away. It was a horrible invasion of privacy. I think it is very cruel of the photographer and the publishers. Such heartless people. I know that William and Catherine will weather the storm but I am so so saddened that they have to deal with this.

This is exactly what I'm trying to say, but other people get angry about!

It's a shame she cannot do as she pleases while in privacy. I think if they almost live in fear of the paparazzi, William and Catherine will let these creeps win.

It's not the first time this mag cross the line with royalty as the Grimaldi are usually their main target. The princely family win regular court battles for privacy invasion , as the french law is particulary serious about it. Usually the incriminated paper has to pay some thousands of euros (usually reversed to charities) and publish an apology (scarce) or a note from the tribunal (always) in front page. Usualy the mag in question is not so worried about this kind of procedure, as they have a special budget destined to the "legal problems", funded by the huge amout of publicty around a juicy story (as today).

The question is : are Will and Kate ready to enter in some serious legal actions against this kind of publication, who let's face it, will flourish during all their lives ? I'll tend to say yes, with the risk to give another level of publicity to this kind of press. Of course they are victims in this story and i just can't believe some comments here or there saying basically "she should know better"...

I noticed some comments about "the french don't protect the privacy of royals". As i can understand the disgust about this story (shared by a good amount of french peole today) i"ll not generalize a la Daily mail with some good old french bashing. This photo could have been taken wherever in world.

On a personnal note i'm of course particularry sad and angry, as many of us today, to see these photos printed at the same time of a very successful Jubilee tour. They certainly don't deserve that...

topless or not, future Queen or not, its their privacy, its not like they were doing anything serious! what a lack of respect even considering that France has one of the most privacy rules for individuals in the world. how dare they!!!

its so easy - stop talking, writing, chatting about it, don´t look at the pictures, don´t buy the mag - thats the only way you can help them.

The mag reached its goal - everybody is talking about it.

So, just stop - because its their business what they are doing in private. stop.

I can't believe this, instead of blaming the person who trespass on private property and invaded someone privacy let blame the victim?

The paparazzi have cameras that can zoom in and take pictures while they are miles away. I think they would be able to take pictures of someone inside someone property. It scary

I can understand the privacy issues and the photographer and publisher has gone way out of line. But even on a private estate why would you go around topless when you know paps will be anywhere they can be to get pictures. Look at the honeymoon pictures we got?
If it was to get an even tan, she shouldn't. I'm not saying she's in the wrong I just don't understand why anyone would go topless.

I agree the paps dont care you are outside in topless thats great money for them. i understand it wrong for that to happen but you are a royal thats standing outside topless in showing your bottom thats money for them thats all that matter to them. the pics are out and wont go away. all they have to do is learn in move on from this

My own perspective on this is as follows:

In France, a man (in this case one with a camera) may creep about unseen in the countryside stalking women with the hope of finding them scantily clad in order to take photgraphs of them...(one could conceivably imagine than the same man might very well be the type (or similar to the type) who hide in sand dunes at the beach talking photos of children or young girls).
Said man then wishes to sell the photos with the purpose of gaining money and the desire to share such photos with other people, whose pleasure in looking at them are likely to be the same as his (similar to the concept of sharing child pornography over the internet). As such, the man in question is a pervert - not a photographer and not a paparazzi - and should be prosecuted and jailed.

They were at a family members house! To me, that is very similar to being in her own home.

I'am not blaming Kate but she must be more careful because you can never be too careful about these things...it's her privacy of course, but has Duchess of Cambrige such things are forbidden...that is the only way to avoid, the paparazzi will chaise her all the time...with or without clothes, for the rest of her life, so she has to be mucht more careful and I'AM not blamming her but...she could avoid it...she is not a normal person...

These aren't as bad as the Harry photos for a whole host of obvious reasons, but certainly I can see why they are pissed because William and Kate hate to be seen looking frivolous in any way. But even if they sue, apparently this publication would only have to pay a few thousand dollars, which is nothing compared to what they will make off these pictures.

I think it's just bad timing coming off the Harry photos, and that whole hullaballoo over publishing them or not publishing them sort of opened a door to treat the royals like celebrities.

How exactly could she have done more? She was in a relatively remote region of France, at a family member's home, in front of only her husband.

The ones that ought to be held responsible are te publishers of this garbage. I usually come down hard on people for not showing common sense, but it's hard for me to see how Catherine could have done anything else to protect her privacy.
