A Swedish celebrity gossip magazine has just published photos of Kate Middleton topless and its sister publication in Denmark says it will follow suit this week.

The unauthorized Kate Middleton photos have already been widely published in France, Italy, Ireland and on the Internet, despite the royal family's best efforts.

The latest publication in Sweden’s Se & Hor came as French police opened a criminal investigation into whether the infamous pics were an invasion of privacy.

Kate Middleton Teeth

“It is nothing new to us to publish nude photos of celebrities on holiday,” said Carina Lofkvist, the chief editor of the Swedish celebrity magazine, on Thursday.

She said Kate Moss, Demi Moore and Sharon Stone have all done the same thing. “No one complains when they do and we print the photos,” Lofkvist said.

Sister publication Se & Hoer in Denmark will publish the pictures as well; they were offered 240 Kate Middleton photos but decided only to use 60-70 of them.

Both magazines declined to say who specifically sold them the images or how much money they paid to acquire them, but it's safe to say it wasn't cheap.

A French court has ruled in favor of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge regarding the Kate Middleton topless pics in Closer magazine, prohibiting all publication.

However, the ruling does not apply to other magazines - Italy's Chi and Ireland's Daily Star have also ran with the topless and nude photos - outside of France.

There's also the widespread dissemination of the photos via the Internet.

Best Kate Middleton Pic

Nevertheless, the court called the invasion of Kate and Prince William's privacy a "brutal display" and ordered Closer to immediately turn over all copies of the pics.

That includes digital copies. Failure to do so means a $13,100 fine. Per day.

The palace has also filed a criminal complaint against those responsible for the Kate Middleton pictures ... whoever that might be. The photographer is still unknown.

Whoever it was took the photos of Kate Middleton topless from a LONG distance away.

As she sunbathed on the balcony of a French chateau with Prince William, Kate clearly had NO idea anyone was watching during their holiday at a private residence.

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."

Within hours of Kate Middleton topless pictures burning up the Internet and the pages of French tabloid Closer, the Royal Family is reportedly planning action against the magazine behind these images.

A rep for St. James's Palace just released a statement saying that "legal proceedings for breach of privacy have been commenced today in France" by Kate and William. No further details were included.

Kate Middleton Smirks

The move does not come as a shock, considering the family's swift and forceful reaction to the photos in question.

"The incident is reminiscent of the worst excess of the paparazzi during the life of Diana, Princess of Wales, and all the more upsetting to the Duke and Duchess for being so," said a spokesman for Clarence House, the Prince of Wales' office, early this morning.

But that's not how Laurence Pieau of Closer sees it. This editor doesn't see why there's any fuss being made over the shots at all.

"These photos are not in the least shocking," he told the Agence France-Presse. "They show a young woman sunbathing topless, like the millions of women you see on beaches."

If Pieau actually believed this, of course, it would raise the question: Why run the supposedly mundane pictures in the first place?

Fortunately, this scandalous hullabaloo does have a silver lining for the Royals: There's no talk anymore about Kate Middleton pregnant rumors, is there?

Prince William and Kate Middleton are "hugely saddened" over the "grotesque, unjustifiable invasion of privacy" by a magazine publishing topless photos of Kate.

French publication Closer printed the Kate Middleton pictures, taken during their holiday at the French chateau of the Queen's nephew, Lord Linley.

The photos are blurry and taken with a long lens, but there are four pages of photos of the couple, with Kate Middleton topless in several of them.

Kate Middleton Smiles

A spokesman for Clarence House, the Prince of Wales' office, confirmed the existence of the photos and the fact that the couple is reeling because of them:

"The incident is reminiscent of the worst excess of the paparazzi during the life of Diana, Princess of Wales, and all the more upsetting to the Duke and Duchess for being so."

"Their Royal Highnesses had every expectation of privacy in the remote house. It is unthinkable that anyone should take such photographs, let alone publish them."

"Officials acting on behalf of their Royal Highnesses are consulting with lawyers to consider what options may be available to the Duke and Duchess."

There's now stopping the publication now, in any case. See the grainy, censored but nevertheless NSFW Kate Middleton photos after the jump:

Either Star Magazine really likes being sued, or they're just trying to be the Onion of celebrity gossip these days, because these stories are getting absurd.

Give them credit for at least being topical this time, though, rather than recycling Brangelina nonsense again (he's putting it to Bella Heathcote, allegedly).

With the Royal Wedding just weeks away, Star cites TOTALLY RELIABLE intel from a “palace tattletale” in breaking a bombshell: Kate Middleton is pregnant!

Kate Middleton: Pregnant Bride!

OMG!! There’s going to be a big announcement about this after the honeymoon, the tabloid claims. Somehow we won't be holding our breath for that.

Meanwhile, Khloe and Lamar’s honeymoon is reportedly over. For Khlomar, only tears, meddling exes and appointments for sex are the norm these days.

This isn't exactly news, as it happens in any marriage.

Finally, Taylor Armstrong is allegedly anorexic. Now that we can believe. Not bad, Star, batting .333 for the week. BTW, your lawyer's on Line 1.

Forget the Royal Wedding of the Century.

We may be looking at an all-time royal mess.

Despite engagement rumors floating over her head, Kate Middleton is reportedly considering an end to her relationship with Prince William. The reason? A four-year old photo that proves he cheated on her with British singer Natasha Hamilton.

It's unclear why this picture, which was published in tabloids at the time, is causing a stir now - but insiders say it's due to Kate's realization that William has been "disrespectful" to her for a long time, and will continue to be even if they get married.

"Kate is now being warned by royal courtiers that she must be prepared for William to follow in his philandering father's footsteps and take a mistress," a source told The National Enquirer.

Cheater

The tabloid even quotes one of the Queen's advisors, who allegedly said to Middleton:

"It won't be IF he does, my dear. It will be WHEN he does - and then you must simply turn a blind eye."

Kate felt "physically ill" at this possibility, the source reports, causing her to rethink the wedding. We have no idea why. According to Mel Gibson, a woman's place is on her knees, not on some high horse.

Give William a break, girlfriend!
