The family of Kate Middleton is “furious” over various raunchy photos of her siblings Pippa and James appearing online, and has reportedly taken action to stop the photos from circulating the net.
It is believed that the photos of Pippa and James in various states of undress had been sold for substantial amounts by friends, making the siblings to feel “betrayed”.
“The whole family is furious at what they see as a betrayal… James and Pippa are really embarrassed … how were they supposed to know when these pictures were taken that they would be put under such scrutiny?,” a friend of the Middletons said.
One of the photos shows Pippa, 27, dancing provocatively in a bra and flimsy shirt, and others show James, 23, sitting cross-legged, completely naked, and in one with his hand down his boxers.
The Telegraph reports that the photos have now been withdrawn from circulation.
Carole Middleton, said in her only ever interview “I feel very vulnerable about everything… I’m not a celebrity and don’t want to be one. I haven’t asked for all this. I’m also worried for my family: I have three children — not just Catherine.”
Since the royal wedding, paparazzi has been camping outside of the home of Pippa, now also known as “Her Royal Hotness”, as photos of her reportedly fetch around US100,000.
