A Danish magazine is to publish pictures of the Duchess of Cambridge topless in a 16-page supplement, following the publication of the images in the Swedish version.

Se & Hoer (See & Hear), a weekly celebrity magazine in Denmark, announced today on its website it will print the photographs, which were taken while Kate was on holiday with Prince William at a chateau owned by the Queen’s nephew Lord Linley in Provence, France.

The publication’s editor in chief Kim Henningsen has said the magazine wants to show Denmark’s entertainment fans “what these photos are all about”.

Today the Swedish version of the celebrity magazine published the photos in a three-page spread.

The royal couple are currently on their way home from a nine-day tour of South-East Asia and the South Pacific as part of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations, but their trip has been largely overshadowed by the media frenzy over the images.

The Duke and Duchess are understood to be considering a variety of measures to prevent further distribution of the topless photos.

A St James’s Palace source said: “We are aware of the plans of a Danish magazine to publish further images.

“All options are under consideration at the moment.”

Yesterday a French court granted an injunction which has stopped France’s Closer magazine - which was first to publish the pictures - from printing further intimate images of the Duchess or selling them.

The royals are also awaiting a decision from France’s criminal prosecutors about whether they will bring criminal charges against the photographer who took the pictures.

The palace reissued a statement it made when the Italian magazine Chi announced over the weekend it would publish the topless photos of Kate, taken during a holiday at a private estate in southern France.

“As we’ve said, we will not be commenting on potential legal action concerning the alleged intended publication of the photos save to say that all proportionate responses will be kept under review,” it said.
