Police suspect ‘inside job’ in Kate photosSeptember 21st, 2012 - 8:37 pm ICT by IANS
London, Sep 21 (IANS) British police have launched a probe to ascertain how the photographer took his shots of Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton and knew exactly where to take the intrusive photos amid suspicions it was an “inside job”.
Police probing the photographer who took the topless pictures of the Duchess of Cambridge are now questioning staff at the French chateau where the couple were staying, Daily Mail reported.
Staff at Chateau D’Autet in southern France, where the Royal couple were holidaying when the pictures were taken, are now being quizzed by police. Detectives want to find out how the photographer knew exactly where to take the intrusive photos.
The news comes after French paparazzo Pascal Rostain said it was an Englishman living in the south of France that staked out the royal couple at the chateau while on their holiday.
The pictures, first published in French Closer magazine, appeared in a Swedish magazine Wednesday and in a Danish magazine Thursday.
A criminal investigation is underway to find and prosecute the photographer - who could face a year in jail and a 36,000 pounds fine.
