Kate Middleton Topless Sunbathing Shots Published In French Tabloid

Kate Middleton topless sunbathing shots in French tabloid Closer

The royal family has a naked debacle on its hands and this time it doesn’t involve Prince Harry. No, surprisingly, the naked perosn in question is none other than the Duchess of Cambridge herself, Kate Middleton. A French tabloid called Closer has published images of Middleton sunbathing topless while on vacation in Provence… right alongside Prince William, so there’s a pretty good chance they’re real. We’re guessing Middleton and the royal family won’t breeze these off as casually as Alison Pill.

You can see the whole lot of them here.

UPDATE: Per reps for the royals via Newsday, Kate and William are “saddened” by the photos:

“Their Royal Highnesses had every expectation of privacy in the remote house. It is unthinkable that anyone should take such photographs, let alone publish them,” a St. James’s Palace official in London said. “The incident is reminiscent of the worst excesses of the press and paparazzi during the life of Diana, Princess ofWales, and all the more upsetting to the Duke and Duchess for being so.”

The palace official said representatives of the couple were consulting with lawyers.

“We feel a line has been crossed with their publication,” the official added.

    • fuck off asshole.

      No seriously, take your douchebag attitude and shove it up your own ass.

    • Seriously?

      Gosh, maybe someone should moderate this comment. Also, your time stamp seems to be screwed up. It’s saying I posted an hour ago, but it was less than five minutes ago.

    honestly, she’s an effing idiot for going topless in public….like was that your first day in the limelight, princess?

    • Thaumata

      Way to blame her for someone else’s bad behaviour.

    • Fabel

      Why is she an idiot? These tabloids are bloodthirsty & shameless; she should be allowed to do– on a private holiday vacation– what thousands of others do every day on a public beach.

    • L

      you guys both need to join the real world….should she be allowed? yes. should she know better? definitely.

      i hate to burst your victim-blaming bubble, but it WASN’T public. she was at a remote, private estate owned by the family.

    • Jenniwren

      As Niki has pointed out, this was by no means in “public.” She was at a private estate owned by a family member. The poor quality of the pictures alone indicates that they were taken by a long-range camera- the probability is that these were taken by someone who was either trespassing or near as dammit and hiding somewhere around the property. If someone had snuck up to her bedroom window and taken these pictures through the curtains would you still consider her an “idiot?” I don’t particularly care about Kate or the Royals in general, but this is clearly a violation of her privacy.

  • Thaumata

    I don’t know why everyone freaks out so much about this kind of thing. Nude sunbathing is awesome, first of all, and not uncommon at all in Europe. Why anyone should fault HER for it is totally beyond me. I feel bad for her that they can’t get a moment’s peace. I mean, jeez, they’re just nipples. Grow up.

  • dave

    Booobs and too bad no bush. Harry is a lucky man and it’s good to see the royals and future queen. What a joke that is but she does have a nice rack

  • Lilly

    This was a private holiday nobody was around or meant to be around, you see topless women sunbathing on the beach all the time, but as soon as it’s someone is seen with a well known name it’s all over the news and everyone is bothered about it!

  • Paola

    I am absolutely shocked! I did not see this coming. Did you notice the Duchess of Cambridge has nipples? Actual human nipples? This is completely unexpected. All this time I was convinced she had Belgian black chocolate truffles filled with raspberry coulis and sprinkled in gold dust instead.
    Royals… They’re just like us!

    P.S. / I’m hungry now

  • Eileen

    Why did you need to print these? She’s entitled to a little privacy, and even if French tabloids don’t choose to respect that, you guys have always seemed pretty fond of her, so I’d kinda expect you to.

  • mark

    good thing she wasn’t swabbing the knob !

  • Jennifer

    I do think Kate Middleton is Pregnant according to this website, I heard she was not drinking wine and that rumors are she is around 5 -6 weeks now.
    But the photo’s don’t show any bump, anyhow I think the photos should not of been posted.

  • Maria

    Did you have to re-post these?

    (Nothing wrong with nipples, but, you know, personal rights and stuff?)

  • MIKE

    Whats the big deal?
    Don’t we all see ourselves and others nude every day?
    I mean its pretty impossible to not see yourself in the mirror, naked, unless you never take a shower, wear a blindfold if you do, or never have the lights on!
    If only the World could “get over itself” and spend a fraction of the time and resources it does on these petty stories, perhaps we might accomplish something meaningful, perhaps even extraordinary………..nah what am I saying?
    We are humans, so anything that actually makes any sense is impossible!
