Danish magazine runs topless Kate photos

A Danish magazine on Thursday became the latest to run pictures of Prince William’s wife Catherine topless, despite moves by furious British royals to stop the spread of the photos. Grainy pictures of the former Kate Middleton taking off and putting on her bikini bottoms also featured in the special supplement of Se og Hoer (See and Hear) that hit the newsstands on Thursday. In 14 of the 36 photos published, the wife of Britain’s second in line to the throne is shown sunbathing topless, like she has been previously in publications in France, Ireland, Italy and Sweden. The photos, which first appeared in French magazine Closer last week, have sparked fury from the British royal family and revived a debate on press intruding into the private lives of celebrities. The publication in Denmark came a day after the magazine’s sister edition in Sweden ran the photos. Neither publication, owned by Danish-based Aller Media, plans to make the pictures available online. Neither of the releases made headlines in Scandinavia or triggered much comment. The chief editor of the Danish magazine said he was “incredibly proud” to have obtained the sole Danish rights to the snaps. “Our readers love to follow the lives of the royals and they want scoops,” Kim Henningsen said on the magazine’s website, noting these were photographs “which the whole world is talking about but very few have actually seen”. After their debut in the French glossy, the photos have also appeared in Ireland’s Daily Star and Italy’s Chi, which like Closer is owned by former prime minister Silvio Berlusconi’s Mondari media group.
