I was wrong.
The latest scandal involves the lovely Kate Middleton, wife to Prince William and the new Duchess of Cambridge. Apparently some paparazzi saw her sunbathing topless at a private house in France and snapped some rather blurry photographs of her royal boobs. The pictures were then published in the popular gossip magazine Closer.
As you might imagine, the royal family is outraged by both the invasion of Kate’s privacy and the subsequent decision to make these photos public. They are considering legal action for what they have described as “grotesque and totally unjustifiable.”
I’m not really sure what to make of all this, to be honest.
On the one hand, I think Kate is a bombshell and would undoubtedly enjoy any nude pictures of her. And since she was on vacation in France, a country where lots of people tend to get naked frequently, this doesn’t seem like a big deal. She was at a private and secluded residence, after all.
On the other hand, Kate and the rest of the royal family are important public figures and need to remember that everything they do or say is fodder for the media. And any revealing pictures taken of them will certainly be published somewhere. I’m sure these pictures fetch big bucks, so I would probably sell them, too.
I guess what I’m trying to say is this: stop acting like royal boobs, people. Otherwise your real boobs could end up plastered across every tabloid on the planet.
Or on my blog, for that matter. And here you are!
UPDATE: It’s official. William and Kate just filed suit against the French magazine that published topless photos of the future Queen. Since all of these photos will start being pulled from the web eventually, I thought it might be nice to post just one more. This one doesn’t involve nudity, but it is still very pleasant. I have to say that Prince William has done pretty well for himself.
