Transcript for Kate Middleton Topless Photos: French Court's Ruling
Thanks, guys. Let's turn to the big battle being waged by the royal couple to shut down publication of those photos of kate topless. A huge victory just moments ago in french court. The magazine that first printed the photos was ordered to hand them all over, within 24 hours. Jeffrey kofman is just on the outskirts of paris this morning, with the latest. Good morning, jeffrey. Reporter: Good morning to you, elizabeth. They are the photos that buckingham palace has called grotesque. And moments ago, a french court seems to have agreed. Granting prince william and catherine middleton, a rare injunction, of the pictures of a topless kate. The french court can't take back the magazines sold. But it can stop anymore being printed. It's been ordered to hand over all digital copies of the photos by noon tomorrow. The pictures of a topless kate with william in the south of france, first appeared in the french magazine "closer." They have rocketed around the world on the internet. And for once, that isn't stopping the royals from fighting back. In court here in france, the lawyer for the duke and duchess said, they were profoundly shocked and troubled. They called the photos a breach of their personal intimacy. Saying the couple had no knowledge of the photographs being taken. The photos have been published in the an italian magazine. The same magazine that upset the royals 15 years ago, when it published photos of diana's final moments. They are trying to show that oh-so british stiff upper lip. But 15 years of william's mother died after being pursued by the paparazzi here in france, it's very raw. Like diana, kate is good for business. When they're in private and have a reasonable expectation of privacy, they are off-limits. Reporter: Now, the british tabloids will not touch the pictures. But the dublin "irish times" has published them. He has threatened the editor and has threatened to close down the paper.
