As Duchess Catherine and Prince William continued their Diamond Jubilee tour of the South Pacific on Monday, the scandal over topless photos of the former Kate Middleton continued to unfold, with the pics getting additional publication even as the couple took legal action.
Lawyers for the royals filed a criminal complaint Monday against the photographer who took the shots, according to the UK Independent. If convicted, the still-anonymous paparazzo and the editor of France's Closer magazine could each face a year in jail, plus a fine.
Later Monday, lawyers were heading to civil court to seek damages and an injunction barring additional publication of the images, CNN said.
Meanwhile, the photos originally published by Closer have since popped up via Chi magazine in Italy and the Daily Star in Ireland (though not in Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom).
