Photographers Who Took Topless Photos Of Kate Middleton Put On Trial
The three photographers who took topless photos of Kate Middleton that were published back in 2012 appeared in court in Paris on Tuesday for the invasion of privacy case.
Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge were vacationing in the south of France when the revealing photos were taken of Middleton. The French gossip magazine Closer published the photos, enraging the British royal family and leading William and Kate to file a court complaint.
The owner and executive editor of Closer are being tried along with the photographers who snapped the photos. The former publisher of a French regional newspaper that also published the photos is also being tried, according to the Associated Press.
None of the three executives attended the trial and neither did William or Kate.
The photographers and their lawyers, who were in attendance, refused to comment on the case. The verdict will be announced at a later date, the Associated Press reports.
