Irish newspaper publishes topless Kate pix
ROME — An Irish tabloid has published topless photos of Prince William’s wife Kate that drew outrage in Britain when they appeared in a French magazine.
The Irish Daily Star ran the pictures Saturday over two inside pages.
Editor Mike O’Kane told the BBC the photos did not feature in the edition distributed in Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom.
The royal couple’s St. James’s Palace office condemned the Irish paper, saying: “There can be no motivation for this action other than greed.”
The French magazine Closer published the photos Friday and was immediately slapped with a lawsuit by the royal couple alleging privacy violations.
The Irish Daily Star website came up as “temporarily unavailable” in Britain on Saturday.
