Toppless Kate Middleton:Photographed By An English Papparazzo?

Submitted by on September 21, 2012 – 10:31 am Comments

If it’s really true that an English paparazzo clicked the photos, surely the whole of Great Britain must be yelling ‘what the hell’. After all, it’s not just some topless photo; it’s an embarrassing photo of a member of the British royalty, and a very important member at that. If the French paparazzo Pascal Rostain is to be believed, the photographer is a British national who now resides in the South of France. “The irony of this whole thing is that the photographer who took these pictures is an Englishman living in the south of France”, he told Lyon’s France Metro.

It truly is ironical, because the whole of Britain was probably getting ready to rekindle its age old rivalry with France thanks to its media making a field day of the whole issue. But if this news that the culprit was a Briton turns out to be true, it would prove to be more embarrassing for the Brits, than the photograph itself. Rostain on his part also revealed “These photos were taken on the orders of Closer, who asked him to sit around for several days to take them.”For his efforts he did not earn a lot. He could have sold them for €10,000 (£8,000). But in fact he was just paid his wages for going to take them.”

Rostain through his statements is basically making the whole thing sound even more vulgar, by suggesting that the Englishman, who took the photos, did it for a pittance. Rostain added: “Whatever they choose to print is not the photographer’s problem but the editor’s.” Which is absolutely true, but whether to take the photographs or not, is completely the discretion of the photographer, as he could always lie that he did not see anything worth photographing.

The French police on its part are doing their best to discover the identity of the photographer, with them raiding the offices of Closer in Paris, earlier this week, for this very reason.  An injunction has been secured in the courts preventing further distribution of the images in France, but this would prove to be no relief at all, as a Danish magazine has since pledged to print the photos. All of it brings us back to the same old question; what the hell was Kate Middleton thinking when she decided to go topless, out in the open?
