When those first topless pics of Kate Middleton were published earlier this month, we had two reactions — sympathy for the Duchess of Cambridge for having her privacy violated, and a bit of a shoulder shrug, because tons of ladies sunbathe topless in France and if you’re gonna do that and be famous, you should expect someone to catch you in the act, no matter how private you think your chosen estate may be. But now that a new set of photos has been published by Danish magazine Se og Hor, one featuring her changing out of her bikini bottom, we’re feeling really bad for her, and icky about people in general. We’re all for being proud of your body and showing it off whenever you like. But then we think about those times when we’ve been hanging out in a wet bathing suit and absolutely had to get out of it immediately, so we tried to maneuver our towels over the important bits in order to make a quick change, and then sometimes the towel slipped and we were really really glad no one who cared was around to see us (we think). Of course, the duchess would never be that lucky.
“We are a leading gossip magazine in Denmark, and it is my job to publish them,” the magazine’s editor told the Belfast Telegraph before the issue came out. “If the British royal family want to sue us, then it will happen then and we’ll deal with it.”
On the bright side, Kate, these pics are super grainy (OK, fine, everyone, head over to Egotastic to see scans of them). And also, when you guys sue the crap out of these tabloids, maybe you can donate that cash to some awesome charity or something.
