Editor defends publishing topless Kate Middleton pictures as “beautiful”
HollywoodNews.com: Topless pictures of Kate Middleton were recently published by the French magazine ‘Closer,’ and now the editor of the magazine has spoken out to defend their decision to publish the pictures that were taken while Kate and William were vacationing at a private residence.
Laurence Pieau has reportedly commented that the photos were not published as a scandal-maker, but are instead showing a happy couple in love, states E! News. “One shouldn’t dramatize these pictures. The reaction has been a little disproportionate. It is a young couple that has just been married. They are in love. They are beautiful. She is the princess of the 21st century,” Pieau commented.
And it seems Pieau thinks these photos are actually a positive thing for Kate: “These are pictures that are full of joy. They are not degrading. Similarities have been drawn with the pictures of Harry. They are not similar. These are not degrading.”
However, the Royal Family doesn’t agree as they released a statement commenting that they are appalled by the invasion of privacy and are looking into what they can do legally to handle this.
