If no one would waste their time or money looking at the pics, the demand for them would dry up. Just don't look. What, you never saw ... never mind. The Royal Family is THE most successful PR machine in the world. They, and the monarchy, bring in billions of tourist dollars. They are the cheapest PR group available. If Madison Ave. add peeps could get the % ROI, as a positive cost center, they do, they would all get 7 figure bonuses.

People have a right to privacy, and to do what they want in private (as long as it isn't illegal). Kate and Harry are consenting adults and they did nothing wrong. Leave them alone (that goes for paps, too).

Where can I find the photos, so I can decide if I should be appalled or not?

Prince William and Kate are currently the biggest publicity seekers in the world. What do they expect? And really, who gives a hoot anyway. This is just the royal family flaunting it a bit.

Sorry, the pictures from France were the equivalent of putting a camera in a lavatory or dressing room. If they were in a semi-public spot that would be one thing, but this is clearly another.

The problem is the increasingly puritanical views that criminalize human bodies. Even the beauty of classical art is suspect.
