The Italian magazine Chi has vowed to publish more of the infamous nude and topless Kate Middleton photos that the British royal family is suing over.
France’s Closer magazine ran a whole spread devoted to Kate Middleton topless last week, prompting a stinging rebuke and a lawsuit from the Duchess.
Chi claims it has 200 images of the future queen sunbathing nude or at least topless, and will proceed with plans to print a 26-page, 50-photo article.
The Chi cover was unveiled Saturday in Italian newspapers and TV under the headline 'Court Scandal: The Queen is Nude!' Check that out below ...
Chi is published by the same media group as Closer.
Alfonso Signorini, the defiant editor of Chi, has Tweeted that “not even a direct call from the Queen” would stop him from publishing the trove of nude pictures:
“I am convinced by this scoop that Chi will be publishing on Monday because that is what we are talking about. These pictures are not offensive or in poor taste."
"They are not morbid and they do not damage the dignity of anyone. Instead the [Prince Harry naked pictures] published in Britain were exactly that."
"If I didn’t recognize the journalistic value of what I had then if I did not publish them I would be better off in a market selling artichokes."
