PARIS (AFP) – A French court ruled yesterday that a French celebrity magazine must pay more than €100,000 in damages to Britain’s Prince William and his wife Kate over topless photos published of the duchess in 2012. The court also ordered Closer magazine’s editor and owner to each pay €45,000 ($53,000) in fines, the maximum possible. The grainy snaps of Kate Middleton sunbathing in a bikini bottom were taken while she was on holiday in September 2012 in the south of France with her husband, the second in line to the British throne. The couple was snapped with a long lens relaxing by a pool at a chateau belonging to Viscount Linley, a nephew of Queen Elizabeth II.
