Kate and William Win French Ruling of Topless Photos

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have come out swinging and winning their first legal brawl in an struggle to halt further magazine shots of the Duchess basking topless while on holiday in France.

According to the BBC Tuesday, a French court of law governed the stills must not be circulated again. Closer magazine, the first periodical to acquire and distribute the images, was mandated to return the originals to the couple within 24 hours.

For now, the ruling applies exclusively to France. The Italian periodical Chi and The Irish Daily Star have also republished the pictures. However, The Irish administration may in fact shut down The Irish Daily Star for reprinting photos snapped when the duo were tanning at a secluded estate in France.

At the moment, British journalists have abstained from reproducing the prints.
