Raunchy Meghan Markle's images set to hit Kate and Wills’ privacy payout in new legal battle
MEGHAN Markle’s sexy shoots mean William and Kate should not have got a £92,000 privacy payout over topless magazine pics, lawyers claim.
Snaps of the Duchess of Sussex, 36, before she joined the Royals are at the centre of an appeal in the French courts.

The country’s Closer mag ran snaps of Kate sunbathing, taken without permission at a rural chateau in 2012.
She and Prince William sued and won damages that far exceed typical payouts.
Now lawyers are appealing the sum, saying ex-actress Meghan’s images prove royals are “happy with sexy photos”.

One legal source said: “They’re happy with sexy photos of themselves when they’re in control, but claim huge amounts if they’re unauthorised. There’s ridiculous hypocrisy involved.”
The case starts at Versailles Appeal Court today.
Among images to be shown are sequences from a 2013 vid Meghan shot for Men’s Health Magazine.
