    Does Kate Middleton have the right not to be photographed naked and the pictures published?

    Morally she should have some privacy, yet she is the stupid person who went topless when she didn't have to.
    Did she do it on purpose because Prince Harry had been in the limelight for being naked at a party? Seems a bit coincidental to me.

      I don't think this was done on purpose, It was the paparazzi who were probably a mile away when they photographed her.

    The Right not to be Photographed Naked: Legally, it depends on the local laws in that area. From a practical standpoint; she's one of the most popular/photographed women on the planet, and you would think that (considering what happened to her husbands mother) she would know better. 

    The Right To Publish The Pictures: Again. that gets into local laws. For the most part, the fines/judgements that these places have to pay for publishing pics like these is substantially less than what they make from them.

    The "paparazzi" are not new, they didn't just magically spring up overnight.

      I agree that she should of been a little more careful but does she have the right to private to privacy considering she is a royal or is she fair game like the rest of us.

      Not knowing British Privacy Laws, I can't comment intelligently on her "rights". I will say however, were this to happen in the U.S. to Michelle Obama,  it would be hard to sell the "expectation of privacy" argument while sunbathing topless outside.

      There should be a difference between being in the grounds of a secluded, private villa and being on a public beach.  Even public figures should have some private life. However, she was naive to expect this to be the case.

    Its an absolute disgrace.  Everybody has the right to privacy in their own home.  If I was caught topless in the comfort of my home with my bf, and saw someone taking pictures, I would kick the shit out of them! Just because she's in the public eye, does not mean she has NO RIGHTS to privacy like the rest of us. 
    If peeping tom behaviour is illegal to normal everyday people then why not EVERYBODY?  I would feel completely violated and am behind Kate Middleton all the way. 
    She deserves to be treated like a human being, not an object in the limelight!

    I agree with you Mazzy although considering she was in secluded grounds there is no privacy for someone of her profile although its a disgrace really these pictures were published, although it is pleasing it wasn't by the British press.
