British royals to seek damages over topless photos
LONDON (AFP) - Lawyers for Prince William and his wife Catherine will seek damages against French magazine Closer for printing topless photographs of the duchess, their office said on Sunday.
The couple's legal team will also seek an injunction at a court hearing in the Paris suburb of Nanterre on Monday to prevent further publication of the pictures.
"We will be seeking an injunction from them (Closer) using the pictures and it will lead to a longer court case where damages will be sought," said a spokesman for St James's Palace.
In a fresh blow to the royal family, the images - taken while the couple were on holiday in the south of France, appeared again in Saturday's Irish Daily Star.
