A lawsuit has been filed against Closer, but that doesn't scare Italian magazine Chi! Publishers have stated that the photos of a topless Duchess Kate will be published in their pages as well, according to the BBC.
"The fact that these are the future rulers of England makes the article more interesting and topical," editor Alfonso Signorini says. Because we all know everyone will be buying this issue for the article!
A spokesman for the Royal couple stated: "We will not be commenting on potential legal action concerning the alleged intended publication of the photos in Italy save to say that all proportionate responses will be kept under review. Any such publication would serve no purpose other than to cause further, entirely unjustifiable upset to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, who were enjoying time alone together in the privacy of a relative's home."
Closer, a French magazine, and Chi are published by the same media group, Mondadori. Following the legal action, Closer began to remove the offending photos, which show Kate sunbathing topless, from its website. However, Signorini says: "This is a deserving topic because it shows in a completely natural way the daily life of a very famous, young and modern couple in love."
