French photographer claims the man was living in the South of France...
The paparazzo who took the [uuid=4e2d3ec1-de2e-4bb7-b29b-5a99cd8d2d1d]Kate Middletonwas reportedly British.
French snapper Pascal Rostain has also claimed that the unidentified man wasn't paid a huge sum for the pics, instead receiving a standard wage for the photos of the Duchess of Cambridge sunbathing topless on holiday in Provence.
Rostain told Lyon's France Metro: "The irony of this whole thing is that the photographer who took these pictures is an Englishman living in the south of France.
"These photos were taken on the orders of Closer, who asked him to sit around for several days to take them.
He continued: "For his efforts he did not earn a lot. He could have sold them for €10,000 (£8,000). But in fact he was just paid his wages for going to take them.
"Whatever they choose to print is not the photographer's problem but the editor's."
The Royal couple have since obtained an injunction preventing the further publication of the pictures in France and are said to be seeking damages.
