“She’s married into the royal family, she’s one of the most photographed people in the world, and she decides to partially disrobe on a balcony where it can be seen from a public road and she’s stunned now,” he chided.

As RadarOnline.com reported, the French magazine, Closer, that started the scandal, has since removed the offending photos from its website.

An Italian gossip magazine owned by the same company, is also planning to publish.

The photos are not being published in the Northern Ireland edition of The Irish Daily Star. Northern Ireland is part of the United Kingdom, and no UK publication is risking the royal legal wrath.
