PRINCESS KATE Awarded $120 K Over Topless Photos

Britain's Princess Kate has been awarded $120,000 over topless photos published in a French magazine.

The royals sued Closer magazine after it published the images on its cover in September 2012. The pics were taken by a long-lens. In a statement read to the court, Prince William said, "The clandestine way in which these photographs were taken was particularly shocking to us as it breached our privacy.”

Closer's editor Laurence Pieau and publisher Ernesto Mauri were also personally fined $54,000 each.

Following the verdict, a Kensington Palace spokesperson said that the royals "wished to make the point strongly that this kind of unjustified intrusion should not happen."
