Irish Paper Publishes Kate Middleton Topless Pictures

And Italian magazine Chi has also signalled its intention to publish the images - which were taken using a long lens.
The Irish paper is a joint venture between that country's Independent News and Media and the UK's Northern and Shell - which publishes the Daily Star here. The pictures will not run in the UK paper.
The Italian magazine is published by Silvio Berlusconi's Mondadori group and its editor issued a defiant statement.
"The fact that these are the future rulers of England makes the article more interesting and topical," claimed Alfonso Signorini.
"This is a deserving topic because it shows in a completely natural way the daily life of a very famous, young and modern couple in love."
St James's Palace is taking legal action against the French edition of Closer magazine, which published the images earlier this week.
