As these images prove, they were clearly taken several metres away by a rather desperate photographer.
The Facebook page of Closer magazine UK has seen so much negative comments after the pictures were posted, prompting them to respond and clearly distance themselves from their French counterparts.
Closer France has Marina Berlusconi as its Chairwoman. Well she is the Chairwoman of the Mandadori Publishing Group that own Closer Magazine France. YES YOU GUESSED IT, she is the oldest daughter of the Italian Stallion* Silvio "Bunga Bunga" Berlusconi.
According to reports, the Royals are extremely furious about these being published. However it does not seem to phase the editor of the magazine Laurence Pieau who responded "These photos are not in the least shocking, they show a young woman sunbathing topless, like the millions of women you see on beaches."
One wonders what Prince Harry might think of these pictures...
PS.... The pictures had to be taken down due to Google Terms Violation!
