(Newser) – Prince Harry has some company, because now his sister-in-law Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, is embroiled in her own nude photo scandal, the BBC reports. French magazine Closer published blurry topless pictures of Kate, apparently taken with a long lens while she and Prince William were on a private holiday at a French chateau owned by the queen's nephew. The royal couple filed a lawsuit today, TMZ reports, but no further details are available yet.

Kate and Wills "have been hugely saddened to learn that a French publication and a photographer have invaded their privacy in such a grotesque and totally unjustifiable manner," a royal spokesperson said earlier. "The incident is reminiscent of the worst excesses of the press and paparazzi during the life of Diana, Princess of Wales, and all the more upsetting to the Duke and Duchess for being so." Meanwhile, William and Kate continued their Asia tour, making their first visit to a mosque today. Kate wore a traditional headdress, echoing iconic pictures of Princess Diana in a similar look in 1996, Us notes.
