(Newser) – Just in case a weary world hasn't seen enough royal skin lately, the proprietors of are trying to get us even more: TMZ has gotten its paws on a letter from the porn site to Laurence Pieau, editrix at Closer, who defended publishing the topless photos of Kate Middleton by saying that her mag had refrained from publishing "more intimate photos" of the royal couple. Seems YouPorn has no such compunction, and is offering Closer an "open check" for the footage, calling it "incredibly newsworthy." "We feel very confident that we can show this footage legally," reads the letter, "and would like to make you aware that we have an 'open checkbook.'" Please. No.

Meanwhile, back at the palace, the BBC reports that Kate and William will tomorrow file a criminal complaint in France against the photographer who snapped the pics. "We can confirm that a criminal complaint is to be made to the French Prosecution Department," a spokesoman says.

Anything to humiliate people who actually believe that they are princes, princesses, kings, and queens is fine by me. A little wake up call to these clowns. Your just eating shitting breathing people like everyone else. Royalty is make believe.

Just a thought.. but are the royals so naive they've never heard of paparazzi? Taken your top off outside... not a good idea if Kate didn't want to be photographed. As for anything more intimate... same advice. Don't... not where you can be seen. Of course, this may all be BS.
