Naked photos of Kate a runaway train
An Italian gossip magazine owned by former Premier Silvio Berlusconi has published a 26-page spread of topless photos of Prince William's wife Kate despite legal action in France against the French magazine that published them first.
Chi hit newsstands on Monday, featuring a montage of photos taken while the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were on vacation at a relative's home in the south of France last month.
Many were the same as those published by the popular French magazine Closer, which like Chi is owned by Berlusconi's Mondadori publishing house.
Later Monday, lawyers for the royal couple are due in court in Nanterre, France, to seek an injunction against Mondadori to prevent further dissemination of the images, which were also reproduced over the weekend by an Irish tabloid.
