Verdict delay over topless Kate photos
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.
The trial of six people, including three photographers, linked to Closer magazine and regional newspaper La Provence was heard at the court in May.
The long-lens images of Kate (above), taken as she holidayed with the Duke of Cambridge in the south of France, adorned the front and inside pages of France’s Closer magazine back in September 2012.
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
