The Duchess of Cambridge - Disgraced

4. The Duchess of Cambridge – Disgraced

In 2012, Duchess Kate along with her husband, Prince William went vacationing in Provence, France. Upon their return, the French magazine, Closer, published pictures of the Duchess sunbathing topless on the private holiday spot.

The French court ruled that the pictures were an invasion of privacy and statements from Kensington Palace resounded the ruling by saying the photos and publication were a “serious breach of privacy.

The Duke and Duchess were awarded £92,000 in damages in 2017.
