Ver­dict de­lay over top­less Kate pho­tos

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A JUDG­MENT has been de­layed in the trial held over the pub­li­ca­tion of top­less pho­to­graphs of the Duchess of Cam­bridge.

A court in Nan­terre, west Paris, was due to de­liver its ver­dict yes­ter­day but has post­poned the hear­ing un­til Septem­ber.

They showed Kate sun­bathing in Provence on the ter­race of a pri­vate chateau owned by Vis­count Lin­ley, the Queen’s nephew and ran along­side an ar­ti­cle about the loved-up pair en­ti­tled “Oh my God!”.

Paul-Al­bert Iweins, rep­re­sent­ing Closer mag­a­zine, ar­gued the pho­tos did not con­sti­tute a breach of pri­vacy and cast the young cou­ple in a pos­i­tive light.

An ex­act date for the ver­dict is ex­pected to be an­nounced next week at the Tri­bunal de Grande In­stance de Nan­terre. ONE of the main con­trib­u­tors to the orig­i­nal Ox­ford English Dic­tio­nary cut off his pe­nis in a fit of mad­ness
