Good - but will it have much effect?

Short term no.  Obviously the pics are out there, the damage has been done.  The tiny fine imposed (a mere swat on the wrist) is absolutely no deterrent when laid against the huge profits the magazines already made from the pics.  And someday in the future, the pictures will no doubt resurface.

But long term, the ruling does help.  It legally establishes that the royals have the right to privacy in certain circumstances, and editors will have to use that when debating whether to publish future questionable pictures.  Some will, of course, but the future punishments can be harsher because of this ruling.

According to a news report first thing today, the magazine has been ordered to hand over all copies of the pictures by some time today (forget whether it was noon or some other time), or be fined £8,000 per day of delay. Unfortunately, £8,000pd is palret compared with the profits they have already made.

I agree with Chris that the principle is important.

I've heard the Danish and Swedish press will be publishing the photos too, over a few pages.

She was topless with her husband, I fail to see the issue or why anyone should consider it news worthy. If she had been caught cheating that would have been news.

Although unfortunatley it seems that a famous couple actually loves each other probably is news these days.

It's almost like the whole Dodi/Di affair when they were crusing on the yachet or lets not forget the images of Duchess Fergie having her toes sucked.  Things that consenting adults do when in the moment and having to be ruined once the paps get a wind of it.
Beautiful faithful Nargony.
Thanks Emily!

Aloha!

I happened to be in Paris when all the furor over the "Closer" magazine was going on - it was out on the newsstands for 2 days I believe - after that, I didn't see it any longer.

It had a picture of the Duchess of Cambridge sans bikini top on the front cover - and quite a few pictures inside as well.   The cover kinda caught your eye!   :o

I agree that privacy should be respected, but I also think that even at a private estate, you should be very careful about removing your clothing outside - if you are a member of
the British Royal Family.

I think she learned a hard lesson about being "Royal" on that vacation.......

Perhaps I am missing something, but there has been talk on the news about The Duchess's new hair style. I don't see it. What am I missing? It still looks long and uncut. Perhaps the part is different? I don't see any big change.

She supposedly got bangs according to the story I read (touting her 'new hairstyle') but the photo accompanying it, her hair was blowing so you couldn't tell if she did or not.

Oh, OK. The picture posted above was from November 24? and her hair doesn't look any different.

No bangs or "fringe" to be seen.

Sometimes 'getting bangs' can refer to have very long bangs than can be brushed to the side rather than worn directly over the forehead or as a fringe. These are what I have myself. I think Kate had her hair all one length and so this would be a 'huge' change for the press though unremarkable to just about anyone else. :)

I thought that might be the effect, but it isn't that big a change. Poor Kate. They have nothing else to say about her since the photo debacle and the onesy that everyone was talking about was a gift from a happy citizen and not an indication of her condition so they go for the "new hair style".
