An Irish newspaper has printed copies of the pages from French magazine Closer showing photographs of the Duchess of Cambridge sunbathing topless while on a private holiday.

The Irish Daily Star took the decision after an Italian magazine said it planned to publish the pictures in a special issue next week.

The magazine is owned by the same publishers as the French magazine. St James's Palace said on Friday it was taking legal action against them.
