French editor defends Kate topless photos, puts them on sale
PARIS (AFP) - The editor of French magazine Closer on Friday defended publishing topless photos of Prince William's wife Catherine and said she was offering them for sale to publications across the world.
"These photos are not in the least shocking. They show a young woman sunbathing topless, like the millions of women you see on beaches," Ms Laurence Pieau said.
She said that La Provence, a local newspaper in the southern French region where the pictures were taken, had previously published a picture of the couple sunbathing on the same terrace of the chateau where the topless pictures were taken.
"It's still on the Internet. That shocked no-one," she said.
