In 2012, French magazine Closer published pictures of the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, on vacation, sunbathing topless, with Prince William, at a private French villa.
Today, a French court imposed maximum fines on Closer, it’s editor and owner!
Closer will have to pay $119,000 in damages, while the editor and owner will have to pay fines of approx. $53k, each.
Nothing like a $200k + pay day!
Don’t rub the Royal Family the wrong way… :).
