If the pixelated internet images of English royal Kate Middleton baring her chest aren’t up to your standards, Se og Hør is here to help. The tabloid is planning to jump on the topless-tabloid bandwagon with a 16-page supplement dedicated to Kate’s indecent exposure.
Se og Hør's editor-in-chief Kim Henningsen said he was "unbelievably proud" that Se og Hør has obtained the photos and will be the only Danish media – so far, anyway – to run the shots that have made headlines the world over.
"Our readers love to follow the lives of celebrities and royals and are always looking for news that brings them up close," Henningsen said in a statement. "It is in Se og Hør's DNA to entertain and satisfy our readers' curiosity. Therefore, it is always relevant for us when a duchess and the future queen of England is topless and willingly reveals her breasts towards a public road."
The Duchess of Cambridge and her new hubby Prince William were sunbathing on a porch in southern France when Kate dropped her top and an anonymous paparazzo snapped the shots.
The photos, first published in France’s tabloid magazine, Closer, have also made their way to Italian pages despite an injunction granted to the royal couple. The ruling, handed down by a court in Nanterre, France, demands that Closer hand the original photos over to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and forbids the media outlet from selling additional copies.
While the Irish tabloid The Irish Daily Star ran the photos, magazines in the UK have forgone printing them, hoping to rebuild their reputations following recent UK tabloid scandals, and the paparazzi fall-out that may have led to Princess Diana’s death in 1997.
But Se og Hør has reportedly gotten hold of a handful of the 200-odd photos of Kate and Will. The tabloid, however, won’t be putting the photos online. The royal jewels will only be available to those willing to buy them in print when the magazine hits newsstands tomorrow.
