The release of Kate Middleton nude photos in Scandinavia was the latest chapter of the recent royal scandal, but will it be the last we hear of the bottomless and topless pics?

Kate Middleton, Prince William Together

For celebrity gossip publications, the controversial pictures are the gift that keeps on giving. For the royal family, it's starting to look like a nightmare that will never end.

A blogger for the The Telegraph (UK) reports, "Newspaper pictures editors tell me there are as many as 270 pictures being hawked around." So far, we've seen 24.

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.

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 Harry is in the royal doghouse after naked photos of him partying leaked online, and no one is less pleased than his big brother Prince William.

If you missed them, pictures of Prince Harry naked and playing strip billiards with some girls in Vegas hit the web last night ... to his family's chagrin.

"William was told about the photos this morning," a royal insider said of Kate Middleton's husband and the heir to the throne. "He's not impressed."

What happened in Vegas definitely didn't stay there for Harry.

No word on how other members of the royal family - namely his father Prince Charles or grandmother Queen Elizabeth II - have reacted to the scandal.

Professionally as well as personally, Prince Harry, a military helicopter pilot on leave during the wild Sin City weekend, has some explaining to do.

"He will be reprimanded [by the army]. Officers should never bring the Service into disrepute, whether on or off duty," a senior military source says.

"This display of social misbehavior has raised eyebrows."

Harry, who spent much of last fall in Arizona and California during an intensive training period, "likely won't be dismissed" from the army, however.

"This type of behavior is not expected of someone his age and rank. They will call him in when he gets back and want to talk to him about it."

While he certainly didn't make his family proud and probably should know better, Harry also should be given some slack here, don't you think?

There's no indication he did anything illegal or even that salacious, nor did he plan on some shady person selling pics of him, we're guessing.

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!
