Just weeks after Prince Harry was photographed naked in Las Vegas, a French magazine is planning to publish topless photos of the Duchess of Cambridge.

The images of Kate were reportedly taken by unscrupulous paparazzi while she and William were on holidays in France last week.

The photos were bought by French gossip magazine Closer, which has announced it will publish them today.

A teaser was posted on the magazine’s website last night reading “World Exclusive; Kate and William in Provence: Oh My God!”

The site also published a pixelated version on the cover, which appears to show the Duchess in a bikini, apparently about to remove her top.

The magazine’s editor Laurence Pieau said Harry would feel “less alone” when the issue hit the stands this morning.
