A royal scandal that few saw coming has ensued: topless photos of the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middle. Dan appeared on Good Morning America today to discuss a French tabloid’s decision to publish these photos of the duchess, and whether the palace can take action. What options does the royal family have, legally? Answers Dan, “Remember, generally they don’t sue the media, they have had a policy of not suing the media… this is more egregious in the sense that you’re talking about a long lens, on vacation, and in France, where the privacy laws are very tough.” The problem is that the remedy is a fine, and maybe news outlets will be happy to pay a fine and have the photos, making it nearly impossible to prevent those photos from making it to the public’s eyes.
