Kate Middleton hugely saddened over grotesque invasion of privacyby

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Kate, are said to be "hugely saddened" over the "grotesque" invasion of privacy after French magazine Closer published topless photographs of Kate, taken during a private holiday in France

LONDON, United Kingdom -- Only weeks after the publication of nude pictures of Prince Harry whilst partying in Las Vegas, a new media hurricane has hit the British Royal Family.

French magazine Closer published a five-page splash of unauthorised photographs showing the Duchess of Cambridge sunbathing topless whilst on a private holiday with her husband Prince William.

Confirmed as genuine by St James's Palace, the photographs were taken last week with a long-lens camera whilst William and Kate were enjoying a holiday within the confines of a private property in the south of France.

St James's Palace issued an unusually strongly-worded statement on Friday:

Their Royal Highnesses have been hugely saddened to learn that a French publication and a photographer have invaded their privacy in such a grotesque and totally unjustifiable manner.
The incident is reminiscent of the worst excesses of the press and paparazzi during the life of Diana, Princess of Wales, and all the more upsetting to The Duke and Duchess for being so.
Their Royal Highnesses had every expectation of privacy in the remote house. It is unthinkable that anyone should take such photographs, let alone publish them.
Officials acting on behalf of Their Royal Highnesses are consulting with lawyers to consider what options may be available to The Duke and Duchess.”

The royal couple learned about Closer's plans to publish the photographs during breakfast in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are currently on a tour of South East Asia.
