Swedish magazine publishes topless Kate photos

The Swedish sister magazine of the Danish publication that will release the topless photos of the Duchess of Cambridge in a supplement tomorrow has already published the unauthorised images of the British royal.

According to the Associated Press, Sweden's Se & Hor magazine defended its actions, saying it treated the shots of the duchess in the same way it covers the private lives of Hollywood's A-listers.

Carina Lofkvist, the chief editor of the magazine, said:

It is nothing new to us to publish nude photos of celebrities on holiday. No one complains when [stars appear naked] and we print the photos.
