The publishers of Closer better lawyer up!

As we speculated this morning, Kate Middleton and Prince William are suing the French magazine over the publication of topless photos of Kate.

The photos, taken from a great distance, show the royal couple sunbathing in a 19th-century hunting lodge in southern France.

Reuters has the official statement from the couple’s representatives: “St James's Palace confirms that legal proceedings for breach of privacy have been commenced today in France by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge against the publishers of Closer Magazine France.”

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge aren’t letting the scandal affect their plans, however: Kate and William are busy touring Malaysia.
