The Royals Got Their Topless Kate Middleton Injunction

The cockblocking French court has banned French magazine Closer from re-publishing or distributing photos of Kate Middleton sunbathing topless in France. Closer now has to hand over the originals within 24 hours or be fined $13,000 per day. Not affected is sister magazine Chi which is based in Italy and which has also published a few of the topless photos.

“These snapshots which showed the intimacy of a couple, partially naked on the terrace of a private home, surrounded by a park several hundred metres from a public road, and being able to legitimately assume that they are protected from passers-by, are by nature particularly intrusive.”

The magistrates ruled that every photograph published in France by Mondadori in future would carry a fine, also of 10,000 euros per breach.

However, the ruling refers only to those pictures that have already been published – Closer’s editor has previously hinted that she has other, more intimate, pictures.

A good way to solve all these privacy problems would be with a superhero. One that can sense a shutter click from miles away and jumps into action by covering up a celebrity’s breasts with their hands. We can call him Handbra Man and I know just the person for the job. *Uses blanket as cape, Looks proudly in mirror*
