For members of the royal family like Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, privacy is of the utmost importance. They are such public figures, and as such, when they do seek time on their own to be normal people away from the glare of the spotlight, this is a wish that should be met and respected by all parties involved. Sadly, that's not always the case. In fact, often it's far from it. Rebekah Brooks, the deputy editor of The Sun, was recently acquitted of the crime of paying to acquire a photograph of Prince William wearing a bikini at a fancy-dress party. That's right, she paid off one of his friends to get a photo of him looking ridiculous, and now she's getting away with it.
At the party in question -- where Kate Middleton was reportedly wearing a wet suit -- William thought he was safe from the eye of the paparazzi, but because of Brooks' unethical behavior, neither he nor Kate was safe to enjoy the evening as they had every right to do. The only reason Brooks got away with such a heinous act is because the judge deemed it an impossible case since no one knows where the photo came from. Luckily, Kate and Prince William might still get the justice they deserve -- this is only one of many charges against Brooks.
Do you think that Brooks should have been found guilty?
