So far, magazines in Ireland, Denmark, Sweden, Germany and Belgium have published one or more of the photos, according to Loefkvist, who played down the significance of the nudity.
A photographer who was at the scene taking photos, but not of Kate topless, said the royal couple were in clear view of a public road and a public area closer to the estate that was being used by numerous members of the public.
Kate has been photographed in skimpy bikinis before, while vacationing in the Mediterranean while she was dating the Prince. Since their marriage, the royal couple had been more discreet until the French photos surfaced.
The topless photos were taken of Kate and Prince William while they were vacationing at the Chateau D’Aulet, a sprawling 640-acre estate in Provence, France, owned by the Queen’s nephew.
