On Friday, September 14 French tabloid, Closer published topless photos of Kate Middleton taken by paparazzi while she was vacationed in a private chateau with Prince William in the South of France. After the incident the royal family has sued the French Magazine for publishing the topless photos.
Closer however, is now not the only magazine running the photos, even after the Royals sued the magazine. On Saturday, Italian magazine Chi announced that they would publish the photos on Monday in their magazine.
Editor-in-chief, Alfonso Signorini said in a statement according to CNN, "It is a story worth publishing in an extraordinary edition because it shows in a natural light the everyday life of a very famous contemporary young couple in love."
He added, "The fact that they happen to be the future king and queen of England certainly makes it more interesting and current, and in line with today's concept of monarchy."
The montage of photos featured in Chi's spread include 14 photos that were originally published in Closer as well as on of the princess putting sun screen on her backside, that didn't appear in Closer.
Both Closer and Chi are owned by the Mondadori media.
The court cast against Closer begins in Paris Monday. According to The Huffington Post UK a palace spokesperson said, "The court hearing is in France tomorrow when the official proceedings will start at a court in Paris as the papers have been served.
It is the first airing and we will be seeking an injunction from them using the pictures and it will lead to a longer court case where damages will be sought."
On Saturday, the Irish Daily Star newspaper also published the topless photos which appeared in their Republic of Ireland edition.
It is unknown at this point whether or not the Duke and Duchess will go ahead and take more legal action against the publications that continue to publish the photos. Currently the Prince and Princess are in Borneo enjoying their tour of South East Asia for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Tour.
