Prince William is especially upset that Kate Middleton topless photos have been published. BBC reporter Nicholas Witchell said: "I have rarely heard quite such a level of publicly expressed anger that I have heard today reflecting William's feelings. He is absolutely determined to protect the privacy of his wife; he has always been very protective of her and that anger has mounted during the day."
The Duke and Duchess believe that the printed images are a "grotesque and unjustifiable invasion of privacy," the BBC reports.
Kate's topless pictures were taken last week in France and the royals are considering taking legal action. Closer's editor says the couple were "visible from the street" and the pics are "not in the least shocking."
Prince William and Kate issued the following statement:
"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 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."
The late Princess Diana does not belong in this statement. Her tragic death has nothing to do with Kate being dumb enough to go topless on vacation! I feel more sorry for Prince Harry, who trusted the wrong people, and was photographed nude in his own hotel room.
The royals feel entitled to the privacy that other celebrities don't have and they need to realize they're no better than any other celebrity, or person for that matter.
Now it's time for Prince William's naked pics to leak!
