Prince William and Kate Middleton's lawyers are currently preparing to appear in court to prevent further publication of any topless shots that may be leaked, after the intimate snaps already appeared in French Closer magazine and the Irish Daily Star.
The couple are understandably worried that more publications will jump on the bandwagon and publish the shots, with an Italian magazine already planning to print the photo's. The lawyers, who are set to appear in court in Paris on Monday (September 17), will also seek damages following the photo scandal, as the Royals visit the Solomon Islands as part of a tour of south-east Asia and the South Pacific.
Kate and Will were spotted yesterday (September 15) in Malaysia at the Borneo Rainforest Lodge and the pair looked content as they posed for pictures and Kate was her usual cheerful self.
According to TMZ, a porn website has also expressed an interest in the photos. The website claims to have obtained a letter sent by the owner of x-rated porn site YouPorn to the Editor of the French edition of Closer, the naughty website is desperate to own the footage -and will get it at literally any cost.
Laurence Pieau, the editor of Closer has claimed that the magazine is in possession of even more "intimate" photos of Kate and William which she has decided not to publish. YouPorn honcho Corey Price says he wants to buy the "intimate footage".
According to the website, Price wrote in a letter to Pieau: "We feel very confident that we can show this footage legally, and would like to make you aware that we have an 'open checkbook.'"
The Closer editor has said she held back in publishing the "intimate" pictures, but did not provide a reason for her decision.
Leave Kate alone!
