Kate Middleton Is Topless


Yesterday a French magazine entitled Closer said they were going to post topless photos of Kate Middleton today and they followed through and did it. The one above is from the rear obviously and looks to be taken from a mile away. The entire series was taken in France when William and Kate were sunbathing at a chateau and Kate took off her top to avoid getting tan lines. Here is the thing. If you don't want topless photos of yourself out there and you are someone very high profile like Kate, you are going to have to leave your top on because someone is going to be out there trying to get a shot. This means there have been topless photos of Pippa and Kate and almost naked photos of Harry. Do you think William would care to make it the superfecta? If you want to try to see the NSFW photos you can click here, but most sites that have the photos have more traffic than Los Angeles during rush hour so it might take a few attempts. You can also just Google Kate Middleton topless in images and you can see them. Nothing that spectacular.

so goddamn creepy.

Ms Cool said...

Yawn.

libby said...

William is supposedly FURIOUS, because he blames aggressive paps for his mother's death.

rejectedcarebear said...

Its kind of common sense in regards to sun bathing topless- if you're famous you're probably going to be photographed. Cover up next time, tan lines aren't that bad.

auntliddy said...

I dont get the huge interest. They are boobs!! And i think its mean to stalk her, take the pics and sell them. No moral charactor there. I say leave her alone.

Cathy said...

Yeah, it probably wasn't too smart of her to take her top off if she didn't want anyone to see. But the pictures were taken from so far away that she probably didn't think anyone else was around.

normadesmond said...

WHY THE HELL IS SOMEONE FAMOUS TAKING HER TOP OFF IN PUBLIC? WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE?

got any of granny?

tamarind said...

as my dear ol dad used to say, she needs to eat a cheeseburger.

FrenchGirl said...

creepy for me! every one deserved a private life! it's not like they were on a posh and overfamous beach at StTropez

Nellie said...

She wasn't in public. She was on vacation alone with her husband at a friends house that sits on over 600 acres of private land. In France, which has crazy strict pap laws. Plus since when does Europe give a crap about sunbathing topless?? Stay cool Europe. Please stay cool. If you go all Puritan on me, I will be devastated.

Glitter said...

Why take the chance and go topless?

RenoBlondee said...

Does anyone high profile NOT have a topless picture of themselves anymore?

Patty said...

She had more than a reasonable expectation of privacy at this venue. Especially since the photos were taken with a long range lens. They were not at a resort, or pool side at a hotel. They were on a private estate.

Henriette said...

Privacy is gone when you are in the public eye, especially a Royal. She was dumb. Just like Prince Hot Gringe.

Redheat said...

What is with this worlds obsession with boobs? She was at a private house, and had an expectation of privacy. I don't think that just because you are a public figure, that all bets are off.

Prince Harry, was in a venue with NO expectation of privacy and it's a whole different thing.

Susan said...

Oh, please. She did nothing wrong. Paparazzi suck. They just torment this family to no end. She should just hold her head up high and say, "They're real and they're fabulous."

g.strathmore said...

Not smart on her part. Unless she doesn't mind that people have pictures of her boobies. In that case, carry on.

auntliddy said...

I dont get why people are blaming kate. She shld be able to do what she wants, on private oroperty, without some overgrown juvenile trying to get pictures. SHE did nothing wrong, the amoral photog did.

mikey said...

I don't think it's unreasonable that she thought sunbathing on a private estate (600 acres worth) was, you know, private. She wasn't at a public beach or pool, or even on a yacht out in the ocean.

Unknown said...

jesus, people. this wasn't harry cavorting in public with a with a group of strangers. she was on a private estate with her husband and had every right to an expectation of privacy. \these photos are creppy and highly intrusive.

Henriette said...

It's not that she did anything "wrong." It's the fact she is a Royal and pics of her are wanted. It was not too smart on her part.

MISCH said...

She needs to understand she just can't do everything she might want too.
Truth is she should know better..

crila16 said...

C'mon...WHO CARES!!!! They're just breasts. Men don't wear tops. Just because a woman has a gland that makes them bigger...we're supposed to hide them in shame??? Everyone woman in the world has them. God made them. Why are we always having to hide them? Because society tells us so? Is it because men are Pigs and can't stop staring? How is that a woman's fault? Why are boobs considered dirty? They're for breast feeding little babies. It still shocks me in this day and age that people make a big deal over boobs, as if Kate is trashy. She's not doing porn people.

libby said...

It must suck to never have a private moment with your husband.

Layna Day said...

Talk about pointing fingers at the wrong person. Kate was on a private estate, owned by friends, and had no reason to think some creepy pap was photographing her from over a mile away with a long-range lens. She wasn't parading around town, flashing the media.

If any of us were to walk around nude on vacation in a PRIVATE setting, we would have expectations of not being photographed by strangers.

And this she's famous so she should expect it meme is disturbing. So she deserves to have her privacy taken away because she married into a famous family? Come on!

Nellie said...

@crila16 - I love you

Is anyone else super impressed with our technology? Those photos were taken from over a MILE away. That's amazing.

Tuxedo Cat said...

I guess that's one problem Camilla never had...

Henriette said...

@Layna Day
Yeah, she married into an EXTREMELY famous family. She saw what happened to her own mother-in-law, so I don't think prudence is too out of line. She married into this. Was your wedding broadcasted all over the world? Mine wasn't.

This debate has gone on before about celebs and expectations of privacy. Sure she should be able to go topless on a private residence, but she will also have to deal with the consequences of these photos.

No paparazzo one is going to get a huge payout for me or the average citizen going topless.

Robert said...

Personally, I feel there are a lot of men who should cover their boobs while sunbathing, as well--I find that more disturbing. I think the first issue of Hustler Magazine published photos of Jacqueline Onassis sunbathing nude on her private island, taken with a telephoto lens from so far away they might as well have been an impressionist painting. I guess the idea that it was Jackie O was what sold magazines. Sheesh.

@Henriette: So she has no right to privacy? Got it.

Jessi said...

All you people saying that Kate is at fault for this. Um Saw it off! Yes how dare she be herself on vacation on a PRIVATE estate!

Pogue Mahone said...

You think the Royals would know by now how to behave in public; to know that they're always being watched, followed and photographed. Have the common sense to NOT do ANYTHING that you don't want to be made public, it's that simple.If you don't want it photographed and shown to the world then maybe you shouldn't be doing it in the first place!

Layna Day said...

And who says Kate is that embarrassed about her breasts? I doubt she is. It's about having her privacy violated. And she wasn't in public, what part of a 600-acre private estate is hard to understand?

Blaming the victim, just because she's famous. That's what it comes down to.

Unknown said...

@stillhere: umm, fergie was at a public pool. with her children. with a man. while still married to andrew. so no. not the same thing at all.

ms_goddess said...

^^^And said man was sucking on her toes!

Sugar said...

I love that she's brave enough to sun topless. She should be able to do what she wants without fear of creepers creeping all over her with their camera lenses.

g.strathmore said...

@Henriette and Pogue Mahone, I agree.

jennifer hansen said...

isn't stupid how you can wear a bikini top out in public but not a bra when basically it's the same freakin thing! i saw a quote that said that on pinterest not the exact wording but you get the gist lol

smashbash said...

Leave these fracking people alone for god sake. They can't do anything without everyone jumpin on the opportunity to exploit them. This goes back to the thread a few days ago.
It's just boobs what is the big deal? She will be the queen one day?
It rude for them to even take the pictures no less sell them. She shouldn't feel like she isn't free to live her life and enjoy tanning topless. Paps need to piss off.

Rose said...

I don't think she did anything wrong, but when you are that famous and a Royal you will have to weigh the options. Enjoy yourself the way you want or risk the paparazzi.

I don't get why people seem to want every detail and see every body part of someone because they are known to the world.

Kathleen said...

Everyone sunbathes topless in continental Europe. Not a big deal. The British need to lighten up. Kate did nothing wrong. And obviously these photos were taken from really far away with an extremely long lense. I think it's very intrusive. She was not at a public beach but on a private home.

Dee Lurker said...

Finally coming out of lurker mode after months of being too lazy to register an account to comment.

I find it strange that after all the crazy shit we read on here I'm being compelled to comment on THIS story. ;p

I just need to say that Kate Middleton is the most poised, gracious, and outstandingly humble looking celebrity in her age group. Considering the speed from which her life went from normal to crazy, she still always seems so healthy, lighthearted, and in love with her man. She always has a genuine smile on her face that lights up her eyes. And her body, though on the thin side, is absolutely banging.

She should always be proud of how she handles her position and I think Will knows it.

SusanB said...

I'm with auntliddy - they're just breasts! You see 5 or 10 sets, you've pretty much seen them all. The only time I'd be tempted to look is if a woman had three or more. That might be worth a peek.

smashbash said...

Why is nudity such a big fucking deal? Society has made it that way! Playboy, hustler, porn. They have made men into sex addict and women into slaves who think they need double d's and mold injected into their faces.

As a human race we are on a serious downward spiral if nudity is now somehow wrong or sinful. I am a petite girl and when it's hot I would like to walk around topless. But men are such pigs I would probably end up with pictures of ME on the internet as well. Have we really gone that downhill that women are just objects for men to oogle
At?

It really bothers me and angers me that our bodies, what we are born with and live with everyday, have now become something to hide and feel shameful about. That is what is majorly wrong, that is why girls have eating disorders and get tons of plastic surgery. They feel shameful if they are not perfect.

I would say I hope it changes, but it is just getting worse. Crime is worse, people act out worse, we have created newer strong drugs, it is always to the extreme.

dia papaya said...

Umm. Happy Friday Everyone?

Boobs. So what? No one would try to pap Michelle Obama while she was on vacation. The paps are being tacky and rude to poor Kate.

Agent, when do adult beverages start? People are cranky today...

curlyhairslacker said...

I agree with Susan, who said, "she should hold her head high & say they are real and fabulous."

Why do we make such a big deal over this crap? She was at a private estate, with her husband. Not scandal worthy.

Topper Madison said...

I don't think it's reasonable for royals to expect to be treated like the rest of us. I know topless sunbathing is the norm in Europe, but that doesn't mean the future Queen of England should be doing it--anywhere--simply because of this possible situation. Oddly enough, some of us have never sunbathed topless, and our lives are quite fulfilled.

For the royal family to get so upset, it's a bit of an overreaction (albiet an understandable one.) After all, the paps may have violated her privacy, but they didn't harrass her to get the photos, like they did with Diana. They were over a mile away. (And yes, I'm terribly impressed with the technology.)

In exchange for their place in history, their privilege, and fame, I think giving up topless sunbathing is a small price to pay. After all, they want to be seen as elite, and that status does come with a higher level of responsibility than the rest of us have.

I believe they also have to give up such luxuries as joining a bowling league or carrying cash. This is just one more to add to the list.

Susan said...

I forgot to add: I couldn't imagine what it feels like to always have a feeling someone is watching you. Because I'm sure that's how Kate Middleton and many other sought-after celebrities feel. In addition, I pity the girl cause you just know the Queen Mum is giving her a ration of shit for this. That prude probably wouldn't even show her ankles in public.

anongkhla said...

Topper Madison, absolutely. I grew up in a family where privacy was valued very, very highly. I am nobody, and I NEVER would do this. If I had, then I would expect it to come back and bite me in the ass because I would have exposed what I wanted to be private. You go outside the house with nothing on, don't be shocked if 1) someone sees, 2) someone gets a picture, 3) they don't keep it to themselves. Regardless of whether or not what they're doing is legal or moral, it still would be also my fault, and I would blame myself forever.

It sucks that it happened to her, but God knows that similar pics have been taken of celebs in similar situations and both of them should have known better here.

(That said, it is just a pair of boobs. I will never understand the fuss so many people will make over a pair of bare breasts. Big whoop.)

(Also, the conspiracy theorist in me is wondering if maybe Kate and William wanted to take the heat off Harry AND make the paps look really bad. Which is insane. My inner conspiracy theorist is just smoking crack today, clearly. Insane!)

chopchop said...

Weren't there already pics of Kate topless on a yacht? From before her & Will were married? So why the big deal now?

The Black Cat said...

I hope she doesn't end up getting implants now because of this. It's nice to see a pair of normal untampered ones for a change besides my own. I think the Queens reaction is what is wrong with the monarchy in general, it's outdated and if they want to survive they have to move along with the times. These photos are nothing terrible and if they were taken from a mile away it makes me wonder what is next, sattelite photos?

Amartel said...

Yeah, let's blame the victim.

pilly said...

Her face won't be on the money

No biggie

Mango said...

Tempest in a tea pot.

She had every reason to expect privacy and the very graininess of the photos show just how far away the paps were. They were intruding on a private moment. Jerks.

FS said...

Thank you! Yes, lets blame the victim. Kate, you dumbass, how dare you expect any privacy on a 600 acre private estate. Don't you understand that there is NOWHERE safe for you. It's not like you invited virtual strangers with cell phones to your private hotel room, no, you were outside where anyone with a two foot long telephoto lens with digital zoom could take a blurry photo of you. And, if some pap didn't get it, then someone would have hacked into the satellites that take pictures of our license plates from space just to get a glimpse of your royal nipples.

Sheesh, I'm far more concerned that she thinks laying out in the sun is a good idea. Someone tell her that's how wrinkles and skin aging happen.

Sian said...

This story has to be one of the most boring things ever. Kate should have kept her top on as regardless of whether it's right or not she knows the world is full of paps. That anyone wants to see the photos is astounding, topless sunbathing is hardly something to be scandalised over - I just cannot bring myself to care even remotely.

Roxxx said...

Hi Susan,
I agree with most of your comments but was bit confused by your reference to the Queen Mum. She died in 2002, so presumably you just mean the Queen? In which case, I'd have to disagree with you as I think the Queen is awesome and would kick that pap's arse or at the very least set her Corgis on him. : )

Topper Madison said...

I don't feel people here are blaming the victim. I just think when you have such a high-profile position such as she does, there's a certain amount of propriety that she is held to, and it's much higher than the level the rest of us are held to. Her marriage is her job. And just like newscasters can't go out to the local bar and tie one on, or people who work at Coke can't be seen drinking Pepsi products EVER, she must always behave as the future Queen of England whenever she's outside. Outside is always considered public, period. Again, it's not like they rigged up a hidden camera in her house.

skimpymist said...

Ok so far we've seen kate's boobs, harry's butt, the king's royal jewels and if I'm not mistaken didn't pippa have a topless photo also. So all we need now is for the queen to go topless and william to show his nether regions for someone to pic a softcore porn montage to the royal family.

skimpymist said...

Oh and shout out to kate's abs. Who would of thought she'd be so ripped.

skimpymist said...

@roxxx u sound like your british B-)

ureallyannoyme said...

There are photos of Will's peen out there. Do a Google image search.

Nellie said...

She isn't in public though. It's not like she stripped and ran down the street nude. She was sunbathing on a remote 600 plus acre estate. The idea that she would not be able to relax snd just be is ludicrous.

Susan said...

Roxx - Yes!! I meant the Queen. Sorry about my mixup.

Robin the Mad Photographer said...

I somehow don't think the Queen is blaming Kate for this, since you would think you could get some degree of privacy on a 600-acre private estate in the middle of Buttfuck, France, for crying out loud, not stripping off and skipping merrily through the main drag on the Riviera. (Besides, I suspect Her Majesty isn't nearly as uptight as a lot of people assume she is; I bet she can a whole lot of fun when she lets her hair down...) It's the paps she's pissed at, and rightly so, and you know William is completely bullshit over this right now--it isn't bad enough they helped chase his mum into an early grave, but now they've got to start in on his wife? As a friend of mine suggested, it's too bad Harry's in Afghanistan and not Europe with a helicopter full of missiles..."Nice telephoto lens you've got there...pity if anything happened to it..."

(Too bad Himmmm hasn't popped in on this thread yet; I'd be interested in hearing his take on celebs and paps...do we need to call his name 3 times, like Beetlejuice, or just turn on the Iron Man light? ;-)

goes in circles said...

If anything the photos should halt an pregnancy speculation.

UPL said...

Topless in France for a normal person is totally normal.

This is the not the same as Harry. Harry invited strangers to his room, he put himself in that situation.

Kate was on a private estate where she thought she was alone with her husband. Her privacy was definitely violated.

I'm shocked anyone is blaming her.

Jasmine said...

I cant believe every is focusing on the privacy aspect of this and no one is talking or snarking about seeing exposed royal boobies!

Okay, so I'll be my own snark brigade and say EH, I totally get why Enty was meh on the whole naked boob Kate thing- full on they arent all that nice. Her best assets are her tummy which clearly shows she works out (good to know since I always assumed girlfriend was just rocking a serious case of the EDs as a way to stay uber thin).

THE BEST PIC OF ALL, of course, is the one where Prince Half-Balding is putting sunscreen on her ass cheek while she is bent over and pulling her bikini bottoms down. Seriously that was a HOT ASS PICTURE! (no pun intended)

I really liked how sort of sexual the pic and a few others were. Like casual sexual, like young (horny) couples are. It was cool to see them being naked and sort of groping one another. I like them together and I was afraid that all this diplomatic stuff we always see them do together now, coupled with her big weight decrease, meant they'd be heading toward that gross protocol stale relationship shit their dad is so known for. (forever team princess Di and forever hate for Camilla and Charles, bleck).

Privacy law, smivacy law. The real story is how freakishly large Kate's nips were. ;-P

Henriette said...

Alright, so Kate's topless on a yacht, but remember a few years ago when CZJ was pregnant, topless, and smoking on a yacht? She too was WAY out in the middle of nowhere, but everyone came down on her for smoking while pregnant. No one cared about her "privacy" being violated and, basically, it was.

What if we saw Kate pregnant, topless, and smoking on a yacht? What would the comments be then? It seems the public just picks and chooses what behavior to judge.

Also, how come Obama can keep his smoking under wraps, but we can see Kate topless? Paps having been trying FOREVER to get a pic of Obama smoking as the president, but have failed. All the pics seen are actually doctored. He KNOWS he is being watched and is careful.

1Jazzimom said...

gross invasion of privacy-royal or not.

Marie said...

Surely this can't be legal? If someone did this to me I would hope I could go to the police and have them arrested - taking photos of me on private property?

Seriously!
