Prince William and his wife, Kate Middleton, were scandalized in recent weeks by photographs showing her sunbathing topless. William and Kate were not on a public beach. Rather, they were at a private villa in the south of France, where the young newlyweds were trying to have some quiet time. Moreover, the photos were taken from half a mile away, with a monstrously powerful zoom lens. When the couple learned of the photos, they brought a lawsuit against a French magazine that wanted to publish them, and succeeded in getting a French court to block publication of the pictures. By then, however, the photos were available on the Internet and in print in other countries.
