  • Rush to get Pippa Middleton's topless photos taken off the market; family feels 'betrayed'

    21st Century Rule of Thumb: If your sister is planning on marrying future King of England, don’t pose for potentially embarrassing pics, or take your clothes off in public.


    That’s the lesson Pippa, and her brother James, Middleton are learning after “friends” have sold compromising snaps of the siblings in various states of undress, including new topless pics of Pippa taken while she was swimming.

    “The whole family is furious at what they see as a betrayal,” a friend of the Middletons told the U.K.’s Telegraph newspaper.

    HOT SHOTS: Pippa Middleton.

    The Middletons have scrambled to quash the distribution of several racy photos, which also include a shot of Pippa partying in a lavender bra with a boxer-clad friend.

    “[Those] images were withdrawn from the entire market,” John Camarillo of Zuma Press confirmed to the Telegraph. “They were only on the market for a few days. They got too popular and that’s why they were withdrawn.”

    That series of party photos, which were sold for “substantial” sums, were reportedly removed from the market after pressure was put on the Middleton family “friend” who took the snaps.

    A second set of shots taken while the Middletons were swimming off of a yacht during a family vacation in Ibiza were obtained by The Daily are also being targeted for removal by the Middleton family. In those, Pippa is photographed rinsing out the top of her bikini. Her sister Kate and Prince William were also on the yacht.

    James Middleton has not gotten off easy, either.

    In one photo, the Duchess of Cambridge’s near-nude brother-in-law had his hands down his boxers, in another, the cake-baker is completely naked—preserving his modesty by crossing his legs.

    “James and Pippa are really embarrassed,” a friend told the paper. “How were they supposed to know when these pictures were taken that they would be put under such scrutiny?”

    Welcome to the 21st Century.
