The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are said to be "saddened" as a French magazine has revealed its intention to print 'topless pictures' of Kate Middleton in its upcoming issue.

The Royal couple are currently in the middle of their Far East tour and reportedly learned of the pictures over breakfast.

Closer magazine have claimed that the "exclusive" photos were taken last week as the royal couple holidayed in France last week, and have teased a couple of images showing Kate in a bikini.

The photos have already been mentioned on the French version of Closer magazine's website, along with the caption: "World Exclusive; Kate and William in Provence: Oh My God!"

Fans of the Royal family are furious over the alleged pictures, as they are said to have been taken on a private estate of Lord Linley, the Queen's nephew.

It's thought that Will and Kate are now seeking legal advice on the images, if they prove to be real.

A royal insider has reportedly told the MailOnline: "The Duke and the Duchess were told at breakfast and are obviously saddened and disappointed if they are genuine as they believe they have a right to privacy - particularly on holiday."

Referring to the death of Princess Diana, who was tragically killed after being chased by paparazzi in Paris in 1997, the source added: "This incident turns the clock back 15 years."

In July an Australian magazine Woman's Day came under fire for publishing pictures of Kate and Wills on their honeymoon after the Royal family specifically requested the media to respect their privacy.

At the time, a St James' Palace spokesperson said: "The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge considered their honeymoon to be a very private event after their hugely public wedding.

"For this reason they asked the media to respect their privacy. That is something they continue to do."
