James Middleton appears to have removed the 'naughty section' of his cake website after topless photographs of his sister Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge were published in French Closer Magazine today.
The entrepreneur previously defended the saucy and innuendo filled products for his mail order business Nice Cakes with the 25 year-old claiming that sending smutty gifts was actually a “sign of affection”.
But since his sister's nude snaps, it appears you cannot order the racy cakes. A warning on the 'naughty section' of the site reads: “Rude humour is a part of being British and reflects the reality of the modern attitude to life.”
It adds: “The rudeness of the cake, even if they are very rude cakes, is a way of saying: 'We are so close that I can send you this kind of cake in the full knowledge that you won't be offended by it.' So actually, rather than intending to be rude, it's a sign of affection instead.”
Some of the cakes included rude pictures and saucy messages that read: “Scrummy boobies that make my hands happy” and “Boobies that jiggle when you wiggle.”
Unsurprisingly the Middletons probably wanted to avoid any kind of link to the scandal or Kate themed cake orders.
Sources close to the royal couple are said to be “incredibly angry” over the breach of privacy with a strongly worded statement from Clarence House threatening legal action and branding the decision to publish the photographs as “grotesque”.
Reacting to the shots, a spokesman for Clarence House said: “[The Duke and Duchess] have been hugely saddened to learn that a French publication and a photographer have invaded their privacy in such a grotesque and totally unjustifiable manner".
Referring to the treatment of Prince William's mother, Princess Diana, whose death the Prince has made clear he blames in part on the paparazzi who pursued her, the spokesman went on: "The incident is reminiscent of the worst excesses of the press and paparazzi during the life of Diana, Princess of Wales, and all the more upsetting to the Duke and Duchess for being so.
"Their Royal Highnesses had every expectation of privacy in the remote house. It is unthinkable that anyone should take such photographs, let alone publish them.
"Officials acting on behalf of their Royal Highnesses are consulting with lawyers to consider what options may be available to the Duke and Duchess."
The couple were reportedly told about the photographs this morning while they continue their royal tour of East Asia, which will undoubtedly be over-shadowed by the topless snaps.
