Kate Middleton has always been the center of media attention, but found herself in the middle of a scandal last week when an Italian magazine published photos of her topless and sunbathing in the South of France. And while tension is growing in the Palace, sources reassure reporters that the Queen is fully supporting Middleton in the matter.
Prince Charles, William‘s father, and Queen ElizabethÂ “are most definitely supporting [Will and Kate] in everything that they are doing,” a Palace source told reporters.
Luckily for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, not only did they win an injunction to stop further publication of the racy photos, their good standing with the royal family has earned them protection.
“If this were Fergie, [the Queen] would be livid,” Ken Wharfe, Princess Diana‘s former bodyguard told reporters, referring to Sarah Ferguson, who was in a similar situation with inappropriate photosÂ 20 years ago. “But this is top-drawer royalty: a favorite grandson and his beautiful wife. They live in another world.”
