Kate Middleton topless: Photos were "taken by British man"

An English paparazzo is reportedly responsible for the half-naked photos of Kate Middleton that were printed in France's Closer magazine last week.

A French photographer has claimed the British male didn't even make much money from the world-famous snaps of Kate on holiday with husband Prince William at Chateau d'Autet.

Pascal Rostain alleged to Lyon's Metro newspaper: "The irony of this whole thing is that the photographer who took these pictures is an Englishman living in the South of France.

"These photos were taken on the orders of Closer, who asked him to sit around for several days to take them.

"For his efforts he did not earn a lot. He could have sold them for €10,000 (£8,000). But in fact he was just paid his wages for going to take them."

But Pascal - one of his country's most notorious long lens snappers - doesn't think the Brit should be blamed for the images.

He added: "What they choose to print is not the photographer's problem but the editor's."

Another photographer - a French woman named Valerie Suau - has admitted she was outside the Chateau taking pictures of Kate in her bikini, but denies she snapped her without a top on.

The royal couple, both 30, this week won an injunction against French Closer magazine to prevent further districution of the exposing images.

The photographer - who has the right to protect his identity under France's protection of journalistic sources laws - could face a year in jail for breaching Kate and Wills' privacy.

The criminal investigation is under way.


Do you think the magazine or the photographer is to blame for the exposing pictures?
The magazine - they knew what they wanted and forced someone to get it
The photographer - he's got his own mind and makes his own decisions
