The Duke and Duchess are setting their foot down.
The royal coupling is now taking legal proceedings against French magazine Closer for violating the robust French privacy laws by publishing topless photos of the Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, according to TMZ.
A rep for St. James's Palace released a statement saying, "Legal proceedings for breach of privacy have been commenced today in France [by the royal couple]."
It is quite obvious the Royal Family have been quite furious over the publication of the topless photos of the future Queen of England.
But so far, it’s unclear what the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are seeking in the lawsuit against the magazine.
Soon after the photos surfaced, the Royal Family issued a statement, claiming, "Their Royal Highnesses 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. The incident is reminiscent of the worst excess 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."
The royals did threaten legal action against the magazine after invading Middleton’s privacy by photographing her while on a private property, during their holiday in France who has most strict privacy laws to protect high profile individuals.
In the photos splashed across the pages of Closer, the Duke and Duchess are seen spending quality time on a balcony while in the South of France where Middleton is seen topless.
