Kate Middleton’s Shocking Topless Photos: Duchess of Cambridge Puts a Brave Smile [PHOTOS]
Kate Middleton puts on a smile on her face despite the topless photo outrage that left the Duke of Cambridge with a grim face.
While they embark on the Diamond Jubilee Tour in the Southeast Asia, Kate Middleton draws a smile on her face as though nothing has happened. A French magazine has recently published topless pictures of the Duchess while she was on a holiday with William. "Closer" magazine published several photos of Kate while she was sunbathing topless. Other pictures included snaps of the royal couple as they put lotion on each other.
But during their visit in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Kate showed unbelievable strength while a bit of anger was evident on the Duke's face. The pair attended several events including a tea party at the British High Commission in Kuala Lumpur.
Kate looked elegant in a lace Alice Temperley dress and matched it with a bun. The Duchess brushed away the turmoil and chatted several guests at the event including designer, Jimmy Choo.
"I am very proud and delighted to have been invited. She is an absolutely beautiful person both inside and out. Very much like Prince's William's mother," Choo said about the Duchess.
Regarding the invasion of the Kate ad William's privacy while they were on a holiday, a St. James spokesperson released a statement earlier.
"Their Royal Highnesses have been hugely saddened to learn that a French publication and a photographer have invaded their privacy in such a grotesque and totally unjustifiable manner. The incident is reminiscent of the worst excesses of the press and paparazzi during the life of Diana, Princess of Wales, and all the more upsetting to The Duke and Duchess for being so. "
"Their Royal Highnesses had every expectation of privacy in the remote house. It is unthinkable that anyone should take such photographs, let alone publish them. Officials acting on behalf of Their Royal Highnesses are consulting with lawyers to consider what options may be available to The Duke and Duchess."
