The royal family is reportedly seeking 1.5 million euros ($2.175 million) over topless photos of Kate Middleton.
Three photographers have appeared in a French court over the topless photographs of the Duchess of Cambridge, which were taken in 2012. The owner and executive editor of Closer are also being tried along with the former publisher of a French regional newspaper that also ran the photos.
You *might* remember the photos, which headlines around the world. The pictures were taken with telephoto lenses while she and Prince William were sunbathing on a patio at a private estate in the south of France.
William and Kate didn't attend the trial, though they were spoken about in detail, obviously. Paul-Albert Iweins, the lawyer for Closer magazine owner Ernesto Mauri, said that he did not understand why the royals were upset enough to go to court.
"The article made everybody happy, from the readers to the royal family, whatever they might say, since the couple was presented under a very favourable light," he claimed in court.
A verdict is expected to be delivered at a later date.
