A French magazine has published topless photos of the Duchess of Cambridge.

Closer says the pictures were taken when the duke and duchess were on holiday last week at the French chateau of the Queen's nephew, Lord Linley.

The photos are blurry and taken with a long lens but are clearly of the royal couple, who are now touring Asia, the BBC's Paris bureau says.
