While I do feel bad for Kate, I'm surprised she allowed herself to be so vulerable.   I realize she was in a "private" garden at the time, but everyone knows that any place outdoors is not beyond the range of a camera lens these days.   It's a terrible invasion of her privacy, but the lessons should have been well learned by the royal family at this point.

I hope the legal team for the Royal Family hammer that periodical and the scum who took the pictures so hard that neither it nor any other media will ever invade their privacy again. My hope that it will be a ground breaking ruling that will protect William and Kate and every other person who's privacy is violated.

I am appalled by the actions of the magazine.

According to someone interviewed on the BBC news this morning, the French have stringent laws relating to privacy, so I hope the French courts will hammer them.

I completely agree with you, MTB.  Again everyone tut tuts and bleats about the media but it was a terrible lapse by CATHERINE, in my view.  She should have known better and my sympathies are with the Queen, not her, I have to say.

BBC News: Topless Kate pictures: Duke and duchess sue French magazine Closer

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-19604535

I hope they succeed in closing the magazine down! It demonstrates William's determination not to put up with what his mother had to go through at the hands of the Press.

Hi Grace,

I'm with you on this - I support and sympathize with The Queen.......

I cannot understand why people run around naked or semi-naked outside their bedrooms or bathrooms - and please keep your curtains drawn.
Harry and Catherine should know better - they're adults, not 4 years olds....
And, I don't even want to see a 4 year old naked, thank you very much....

If one does not want to have topless pictures circulated, one keeps ones clothes on in public............ They should have known better!!

She knows that she is "The most photographed woman in the world"  why would she go out partially naked.  Prince William knew how much his mother suffered in the press, he should have known better and told her to put some clothes on.

I do agree that the French publication that printed the pictures should be dealt with harshly, but everyone, especially the Royal Family, knows that the paparazzi are snakes.   They shouldn't be surprised or miffed that the snake bites when teased.   Frankly, it makes the Royal Family look a little silly and as others before me have alluded to ,  the Queen does not deserve that.   She's always managed to keep herself above that.
