French magazine Closer isn’t the only one with nude photos of Kate Middleton.

On Saturday, Italian magazine Chi announced that it will also publish topless photos of the Duchess of Cambridge, in a 26-page special edition that will hit stores on Monday.

“It is a story worth publishing in an extraordinary edition because it shows in a natural light the everyday life of a very famous contemporary young couple in love,” editor-in-chief Alfonso Signorini said in a statement obtained by CNN.

“The fact that they happen to be the future king and queen of England certainly makes it more interesting and current, and in line with today’s concept of monarchy,” he added.

The photos were snapped during the Middleton and Prince William’s recent vacation in Provence, France.

The Italian magazine’s announcement wasn’t the only publication that caught the attention of the royal palace over the weekend.

On Saturday, the Irish Daily Star newspaper published nude photos that were first released by French magazine Closer. The photos appeared in the paper’s Republic of Ireland edition, but not the Northern Ireland or British editions.

“There can be no motivation for this action other than greed,” a spokesperson from St. James’s Palace told CNN.

As for the Italian release, the spokesperson shed little light on whether or not the Duke and Duchess, both 30, will seek more legal action. On Friday, the British royal family sued Closer for its publication of the photos.

“We will not be commenting on potential legal action concerning the alleged intended publication of the photos in Italy save to say that all proportionate responses will be kept under review. Any such publication would serve no purpose other than to cause further, entirely unjustifiable upset to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, who were enjoying time alone together in the privacy of a relative’s home,” the spokesperson said.

Meanwhile, it was business as usual for the Duke and Duchess on Saturday, as the couple continued their tour of Southeast Asia to celebrate Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee. The pair visited a rainforest in Borneo, where they were fitted with harnesses and hoisted up a giant tree.

A palace spokesperson told People that the royal couple were “feeling upbeat . . . they will not in any way allow what has happened in France to overshadow the tour and their work on behalf of The Queen.”

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are due in the Solomon Islands on Sunday.

    If anyone needs to "grow up" it's the people making a big deal about seeing boobs. It's part of the human body, every female has them, so who really cares? What is so wrong with nudity? Everyone has a body, it's not like no one knows what it looks like. Also, the queen "deserves" her title? How did she get her title? Oh yeah, she was born into a famly. The only thing the monarchy represents is a group of people who are living rich while people starve all because they inherited a name, and people give them way more money than they need or "deserve".

    I couldn't care less if they are "royalty", what did they do to be so royal other than be born into a rich family? This is absolutely ridiculous. It has nothing to do with her as a future queen, all queens have boobs. It is simply just an invasion of privacy. NO ONE should have themselves exposed in magazines without giving their permission.

    These royals have a responsibility to behave correctly! It is ok to say leave them alone but they are royalty and being royalty must behave in such a manner not to cause any disgrace to the title or the family! Kate can not go around doing what she wants! It goes along with the title! The younger generation are a disgrace with nude pics, talking to the media about affairs and openly showing someone sucking toes! The queen is the last of the royals that deserve the title! Disgraceful behaviour for the position! People who condone this behavior have no idea what the monarchy represents and the role they play in a society! These people should grow up!

    What is the BIG DEAL about this royal social parasite tits? She has ugly, sagged, anorexic, hanging down tits. Sure there many women who´s tits are better looking than royal tits. She should not make big deal of ¨naked pictures¨she was already naked in her humbled canon, wearing two tiny piece of cloth, barely covering his royal nipples and royal public hair, more, she was fanning her in-between for the camara, it could see her other hair. She was naked all the time, just when she took her tiny, little, short brazier, when she realized of being naked. If they claim privacy issue I will go for that. Naked pic, GET a REAL JOB KATE.

    If people did not buy the gossip magazines then invading privacy wouldnt be such an issue. Famous people do the same things everyone else does so nobody should be surprised.

    They were not in public, they were on a private estate, so whoever took her photo was violating her privacy. Not that it's any big deal to go topless on holiday in France, but it is customary NOT to take someone's photo without their permission when they are in PRIVATE and then sell them. She should be able to successfully sue. I don't think anyone really cares about this, it's not like it was a sex tape or that she was with some other man besides Wills...it will blow over.

    I agree with you Darcy. Any household has rules. Royality househould has its owns. It is healty and natural to be nude but if being nude in a public place does not apply to Kate's marriage, she cannot complain of her nude pictures.

    when you are a celebrity or royality you have got to be ALOTmore cautious with the things you do.This marriage will not last if the queen has a say in it.It also doest just effect her it effects her husband who is in the military.the military no matter what country you are frowns on things like this.He had to FIGHT to get into the military and pics like this could destroy his carrer.Yes she is young but she is old enough to know better.I am sure before she married into royality she was given guidelines to follow its no different then putting rules down in a normal household except the royal rules are more strict.To me it is starting to look like they are trying to give the queen a heartattack as if she doesnt have enough to worry about without exhibisionists doing things for her to worry about.GROW UP ROYAL KIDS AND WIVES .YOU ALL ARE TRULY ARE A DISGRACE

    Whats all the FUSS! Kate Middletons boobs are no different to anyone elses. Get a grip the Royal household, if she poses nude/topless for all to see that`s her problem. Suggest if she wants to be more discreet about it ,then flaunt her boobs indoors where it is private but lets remember once you enter the outside world it becomes public.For god sake... Privacy! They all want privacy when it suits. Good on the press!

    I think that this is ridiculous! Allow this poor couple the same privacy and respect that we all deserve a human beings. My heart breaks for Kate and the fact that she has to go through such an embarrassing situation. I recognize that she is in the public eye, but not because she sought out fame, but because she fell in love with a man that happened to be born into it. Neither one of them asked for it.....please give them their privacy! It's not all about selling tabloids.......

    I just got paid $6784 working off my laptop this month. And if you think that's cool, my divorced friend has twin toddlers and made over $9k her first month. It feels so good making so much money when other people have to work for so much less. This is what I do, Fox46­.­com
