Another day, another royal scandal.
As Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, continue on their Diamond Jubilee tour of Asia–today’s stop, Kuala Lumpur–the French magazine Closer published topless photos of Kate from a private vacation with William last week. On holiday in southern France, the world famous young couple enjoyed their stay at a private hunting lodge, seemingly unbeknownst to the paparazzi lurking in the bushes.
The photos, taken as the couple sunbathed on a deck, feature the Duchess removing her bikini top presumably to avoid tan lines and enjoying some private time with her husband. There is nothing sexual or deviant about the pictures of one of the most famous women in the world doing what so many ladies do while soaking up the sun. How many of us have removed a bathing suit top or undone halter straps to avoid the unsightly white-to-tan skin contrast?
But that’s not the point.
