Not the brightest bunch our royals, are they?
The Duke of Cambridge has said the publication of topless photographs of his wife in a French magazine was “all the more painful” given his mother’s experience with the paparazzi.
Paris-based agency photographers Cyril Moreau and Dominique Jacovides are accused of taking long-lens shots of the royal couple, including the topless pictures, from a public road.
Prince William’s written declaration was read out by the couple’s lawyer Jean Veil.
He said: “My wife and I thought that we could go to France for a few days in a secluded villa owned by a member of my family, and thus enjoy our privacy.
“We know France and the French and we know that they are, in principle, respectful of private life, including that of their guests.”
Here’s a tip for our future queen: when outside, don’t wander around topless – even if you think nobody can see you.
Perhaps I’ve lived a somewhat sheltered life, but I’ve never met a decent woman who goes topless outdoors, for any reason. Indoors yes, but not outside. One would have hoped the Duchess of Cambridge had a bit more class than this, for heaven’s sake.
