The lawsuit The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge brought against French media for the publication of topless photos has been decided, with the judge granting the couple €100,000.
The Royals have been awarded approximately £91,700 by a French court during the hearing at the Tribunal de Grande Instance de Nanterre today, after a magazine printed topless pictures of the Duchess on holiday in Provence in September 2012. They had claimed for £1 million (€1.6 million) in their original suit.
The court ruled that the images were an invasion of their privacy. William and Kate were staying at a property belonging to The Queen’s nephew and William’s second cousin, David, Earl of Snowdon.
Closer magazine were also fined more than 100,000 euros – the maximum amount allowed for such a claim.
The decision comes a day after the couple announced they are expecting their third child, with Catherine once more suffering with severe morning sickness.
