According to Mail Online, the photographer who took intimate photos of the Duchess of Cambridge has been identified. French police has the name of the paparazzo whose photos were publicize by French magazine, “Closer”, last month.
Kate Middleton and her husband, Prince William were spending their head-in-the-clouds holiday at a French chateau when things turned ugly. The paparazzo secretly took photos of Kate sunbathing while she was… shall we say, butt naked? Obviously the royalties were devastated about the incident, but they were furious when the photos were published in French Closer and hit the newsstands.
What’s worse was that the entire debacle happened while William and Kate were in Malaysia on the second leg of their Asia Pacific tour to commemorate Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee.
As announced by News.com.au, “A name has been offered. The photographer is expected to be held for questioned imminently”. On the authority of The French law, anyone who breaches or violates privacy is subject to jail time up to one year and will be heavily fined.
In addition to that, the court ruling that favored the royal couple states:
These snapshots which showed the intimacy of a couple, partially naked on the terrace of a private home, surrounded by a park several hundred metres from a public road, and being able to legitimately assume that they are protected from passersby, are by nature particularly intrusive.
Someone is definitely going down! Serves you right.
