A UK comedy website has today announced that it will publish a story about Kate Middleton topless tomorrow morning.
This follows publication of pictures of the Duchess of Cambridge topless in publications in France, Ireland and Italy - and despite a court ordering the French publication to hand over all the pictures.
The editor of the comedy website told sources today that he was prepared to print the story despite the court orders and possible fines. "The increased circulation will more than compensate the fine" he reportedly told his CEO and accountants this morning.
An insider at the comedy website told our reporter, "Ed is prepared to risk it - despite the potential backlash - I'm just worried about where it will end - first stories about a topless Kate, next it will be Pippa's arse and pretty soon it will be Fergies feet and Camillas... no sorry I feel sick."
Lawyers for the Duke and Duchess were deep in conversation about this latest threat as we went to press.
More as we get it.
