Sept. 24: French magazine Closer today said its editor Laurence Pieau had received death threats for publishing pictures of the Duchess of Cambridge sunbathing topless.
“We have received more than 300 insulting emails of which several contain death threats,” Closer said, adding that it had notified the police.
Fourteen of the most violent messages addressed to Pieau were handed over to the police. One vowed to “never let her stay in peace”.
The pictures were taken when the royals were vacationing in southern France at a chateau owned by Viscount Linley, the son of Princess Margaret, the deceased sister of the Queen.
