Royals sue over topless pictures of Kate

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have launched legal action against the French magazine Closer over its publication of topless pictures of the duchess, Clarence House has said.

The celebrity gossip magazine printed pictures of the duchess taken during the couple's private holiday in France.

A royal spokesman said the legal proceedings had been launched in France and were for breach of privacy.

Sir Christopher Meyer, former chairman of the Press Complaints Commission, said the couple were doing the right thing in suing the magazine.
