Meghan Markle’s past could come to haunt the Cambridges.
In 2012, Kate Middleton and Prince William were vacationing in France when photographers snapped up topless images of the Duchess of Cambridge sunbathing on a terrace. The images, where Prince William could be seen applying lotion on his wife’s skin, were published in France’s Closer magazine.
The magazine was promptly sued by the Duchess and Duke of Cambridge, allegedly because the images outraged the modesty of the royal family.
As a result, a French court awarded more than $ 122,000 in compensation to Kate and Prince William despite the routine fines in privacy related cases in France being less than $ 130.
