Make no mistake about it we did not refuse because of any moral stance or because we thought it was not in the public interest. It was very much a matter the public would indeed be interested in but not in the public interest. We did not say ‘No No No’ for any legal reasons because nothing prohibits us from reprinting photos from another magazine that is still not subject to any preclusion orders.
We refused to allow Prince William to come to his senses and to ask himself what the hell he was thinking allowing his wife to not only bathe topless but to also pull down her bikini and for him to rub oil on parts where the sun does not shine.
Having defended Ian Strachan some years back in what was deemed the ‘Royal Blackmail’ case I was well aware of the unnecessary exposure and naivety of the Royal Family per se and what little common sense is applied in their conduct.
What is more of concern is that Closer Magazine has ‘other’ photos and also some video which is more controversial than the simple topless photo of a potential future Queen of Great Britain.
The media industry has only concentrated on condemning Closer Magazine for publishing ‘topless’ photos of Kate but has omitted, probably with some justification, the photos that are of more concern as a husband (future King William) applying oil/sun lotion on the private parts of his wife where apparently ‘others’ were also sunbathing.
This leaves a serious question of judgement on the part of ‘King’ Billy and although of course a man cannot ‘prohibit’ his wife in topless or even nude sunbathing at the very least he can show his disapproval by not participating.
Rumour has it that Kate tries to outshine her sister Pippa known as ‘Her Royal Hotness’ because of the curvature of her backside.
Pippa is apparently taking full advantage of her ‘title’ and rumour has it that Kate wanted to show King Billy that her shape can be a match, if not better, than her sister.
The Duchess of Cambridge has already been ‘warned’ by the Security Services to be “more than extra careful” regarding her sartorial wear and MI6 have even taken photos of the Duchess in certain positions to show her how easy it is for a photographer to take ‘risqué’ type snaps.
How a simple gust of wind can turn into a mishap that causes acute embarrassment.
Of course all women should be able to wear swimwear without the thought or paranoia of long-lens intrusion. Some women even relish at the idea of ‘media-exposure’ but Kate Middleton now the Duchess of Cambridge and ultimately the Queen of England is not amongst those.
For those reasons we elected not to publish the photos and neither will we publish the ‘follow up’ which we have seen and are truly an expose extraordinaire.
Let this be a good lesson to King Billy and his wife and take a leaf out of HRH Queen Elizabeth who during her Reign not a single photo has come to light of her in a bathing costume even though at Buckingham Palace the Royal Family frequent nude bathing in the pool with Prince Phillip leading the way.
