Topless Kate Middleton makes Michael O’Kane her first victim
ANYONE wanting to see Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, topless in Provence can read Closer magazine (France), the Daily Star (Ireland), Chi magazine (Italy) or check them out on the world wide web. And here. And here. If you want to see topless stunnas making a la Kate to greet her as she tours the Solomon Island you can do so here. It’s the Streisand Effect in full swing. You might snigger.
Chi has form. In 2006, the magazine published photos of Princess Diana dying in Paris. Chi editor Umberto Brindani said the picrures were “touching” and “tender“.
Chi’s current editor is Alfonso Signorini says:
“Why, I wonder, Kate Middleton, for now Duchess of Cambridge but future queen of the United Kingdom, should be different from girls her age? In the end, the royals are people like any other. Of course they have obligations, duties – but also privileges.”
Over in France, Middleton and Prince William’s lawyer in Nanterre, Paris, has demanded that Closer to hand over the digital originals or else. The matter is being debated by three magistrates.
Kate and Wills are also seeking an injunction against further publication of the pictures. Williams, apparently, wants everyone who has had hand in creating and publishing the photos jailed. He’s a prince. He might be the King of Burma. Well, one has already lost his job. Independent Star, owners of the Irish Daily Star, have suspended editor Michael O’Kane. They say:
Independent Star Limited has suspended editor Michael O’Kane with immediate effect, pending an investigation into the circumstances that led to the Irish Daily Star re-publishing pages from the French magazine ‘Closer’, which contained images of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
The aforesaid Signorini said the pictures were “not particularly sensationalistic nor damaging to her dignity” and “surely makes her more likeable” and “less distant from all of us”. Pah! You can’t be ordinary and regal…
