Se Och Hor, Se Og Hoer Prints Dozens of New Kate Middleton Topless, Changing Bikini (PHOTO)
Se og Hoer will run about "60 or 70" photos throughout a 16-page spread that include a photo of the royal duchess chaging her bikini bottom. Se og Hoer editor Kim Henningsen announced the magazine will arrive on newsstands today (Thursday, Sept. 20) so residents in Denmark can see "what these photos are all about."
A Danish celebrity weekly has printed the controversial photos of a topless Kate Middleton with new unpublished images revealing her bottom.
According to a report, Danish weekly Se og Hoer will run about "60 or 70" photos throughout a 16-page spread that include a photo of the royal duchess chaging her bikini bottom.
Se og Hoer editor Kim Henningsen announced the magazine will arrive on newsstands today (Thursday, Sept. 20) so residents in Denmark can see "what these photos are all about."
The paper is the fifth magazine to run the topless photos of the duchess, defying rules for European tabloids to not publish pictures of royals taken during their personal time. The rules were announced in August when images taken of Prince Harry while completely naked in Las Vegas were published on the celebrity gossip website TMZ.
When Henningsen was asked if she would have held the same regard for Denmark's future queen Princess Mary and run the topless photos of her, the editor took a jab at Middlton when she replied, "Mary knows what to do as a royal. She would never be on pictures like this," reported Showbiz Spy.
"It's not the British Royal Palace who decide what Se og Hor should publish. That's my job," Henningsen added. "It is always relevant for us when a duchess and the future Queen of England is topless. If the British royal family want to sue us, then it will happen and we'll deal with it."
St. James's Palace told Showbiz Spy they were aware of Se og Hoer publishing the intimate photos and they were seeking legal advice.
The Swedish edition of the same magazine, Se och Hoer, has also published the topless images of the duchess in an 11-page spread. Se og Hoer and Se och Hoer are both owned by Denmark-based Allure Media.
"This is nothing unusual, these are quite nice pictures if you compare with other celebrity pictures that we publish all the time," the Swedish magazine's editor, Carina Loefkvist, told BBC.
Loefkvist said the company bought the images from "from photographers and photo agencies, the way we always do" and "before everything erupted" last Friday, Sept. 14.
Several European magazines violated the privacy of the royal couple when they published a slew of topless photos taken during their private vacation in the south of France.
On Sept. 14, French gossip magazine Closer published topless photos of Middleton sunbathing with her husband Prince William. The exclusive photos were taken by a photographer nearly a kilometer away while they were relaxing at a private house..
The pictures have been deemed "grotesque and totally unjustifiable" by the shocked royal family, and have saddened the Duchess of Cambridge.
The royal couple won an injunction against Closer in France on Sept.18. A court order has been issued to the French magazine, which prevents it from running the photos of Middleton both online and offline.
Police officers arrived at the Closer building in France at 10 a.m., and detectives confirmed to reporters that they were looking for information "which might lead to the identity" of the photographer responsible for the scandal, according to Daily News & Analysis.
A criminal complaint has been filed against the photographer who took the shots.
