Tabloid with Kate Middleton Pics Forced to Stop Publishing Shots; Trust Me, They’re Still Online
The injunction stops Mondadori France from printing any more photographs or transmitting them to third parties via email. The penalties are steep: A French court will fine the tabloid €10,000 a day if it publishes any more photographs.
Of course, this is all ridiculous. Stopping the tabloid will not take away the millions of copies of the photos currently circulating online, and if the royal family thinks this will stop further invasions of privacy, well, Kate married into this sort of life. As the editor of a British tabloid told the Guardian, “I think the action has been taken while the horse is already halfway round the field.”
The best she can hope for in the future? Less grainy shots that paint her in a more flattering light.
