ROME (WKOW) -- An Italian gossip magazine is publishing topless photos of Prince William's wife, Kate, on Monday, despite legal action in France against the French magazine, that first published them.
"Chi" hit newsstands on Monday, featuring a montage of photos taken while the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were on vacation at a relative's home in the south of France last month. They included the 14 pictures published by the popular French magazine "Closer."
The "Chi" spread ran the whole sequence of photos as the couple sunbathed on the terrace, including one shot of the princess putting sunscreen on her backside, that did not appear in "Closer."
The couple is fighting back against the images, which William's St. James' Palace called a "grotesque" invasion of privacy.
Later Monday, lawyers for the royal couple are due in Nanterre, France, to seek an injunction to prevent further distribution of the images.
