Kate Middleton's Nude Photo Scandal Is So Much Worse Than Prince Harry's (VIDEO)

Say What!? 34

kate middletonThe Duchess of Cambridge's got it all -- the fame, the fancy clothes, the real-life dashing Prince for a husband ... Most days, it's easy to wish you were Kate Middleton. But not today. Today is a dark day for Kate and Wills, thanks to a bold-as-hell French tabloid, Closer. The publication clearly had no qualms about publishing very candid paparazzi shots of Kate sunbathing topless on the private property of Lord Linley's French chateau. It's an utter scandal ... just like what happened when Prince Harry was caught running around in the buff in Las Vegas last month, right? 

WRONG! Of course both incidents are making the Queen's hair stand on end, but lumping them together as the very same thing is completely ridiculous. And yet, since the Kate story broke, the comparison has been cropping up all over.

Sure, both incidents involve media outlets feeling they were well within their rights to publish naked pics of the young royals, and whether or not they were right to do that in either instance is up for debate. But there's a key, obvious, and crucial differences between the two scandals ... Harry brought his shameful scandal upon himself! As The Sun noted:

We believe Harry has compromised his own privacy. These are not pictures of him and a girlfriend at Balmoral. The Prince was in Vegas, the party capital of a country with strong freedom-of-speech laws, frolicking in the pool before inviting strangers to his hotel room for a game of strip billiards.

On the other hand, Kate and William did absolutely nothing to compromise their own privacy. They were on private property when the shots were taken and likely had no clue that they were at risk of being photographed. It's SUCH a "grotesque," "unjustifiable" (as it's been called) invasion of privacy. Not to mention that it's downright eerie, especially considering how the paparazzi used to terrorize Princess Diana -- something Wills is trying so hard to protect Kate from.

Ugh. Can you imagine what it must feel like to think your privacy might always be compromised in this creepy way? My heart really goes out to Wills and Kate. But to party boy Harry? Sorry, not so much.

Here's a fantastic Reuters report that breaks down the scandal ...

Do you agree Harry was totally to blame for his scandal, whereas Kate was clearly not?

Who cares? She is young, thin and has medium/small boobs, I guess. Should they have known there was a possibility they could be photo'd? Yes. And where was there security to tell them they could be photo'd?  Don't they have people who protect them?                                                                                                            


Her boobs are not royal. Neither are his parts. There is no such thing as royals, except in their mind..  The lineage comes from some dictator declaring he was king. Time to grow up. She ain't special nor is he. Don't care about her parts or his.

Yes agree "who cares" and both accounts. Like topless beaches in Europe aren't the norm....oh yeah and having some raunchy fun when your young and among other consenting young adults isn't the norm either.

If idiots wouldn't buy this trash, the photos wouldn't be worth taking. Any of you who have seen them are guilty; especially if you bought a rag that had them.

No matter how secluded you think you are, you had just better keep your swimsuit on outside.  You are playing with fire by not.  She knew better.  I remember when Fergie had her nudie pictures taken out in the ocean on a private yacht.  They should know better.  I do.  I would NEVER go nude outside, or with curtains open or anything like that.  Her fault entirely.  She was totally stupid.
