Appalling invasion of Kate's privacy

The topless pictures of the Duchess of Cambridge, which were published in a French magazine, represent what is by any yardstick, an appalling invasion of her privacy.
The pictures, which were taken last month when the duchess was on a private holiday in France with her husband, should never have been published.
When such pictures are published the usual justification is that those whose privacy is being violated are somehow "public figures" and this justifies just about any sort of photographic intrusion.
