Berlusconi Magazines May Have Published Kate Photos To Get Revenge On The Queen

•, Adam Taylor

The pictures have already been published in Ireland and Italy, and they are — of course — available to virtually anyone with internet access.

The publication the images — along with publication earlier this year of scandalous shots of Prince Harry — is a major blow for the UK Royals, who had a reprieve from the worst moments of tabloid scrutiny since the death of Princess Diana in 1997, but who has been behind the blow?

We already know that Silvio Berlusconi, the former Prime Minister of Italy and one of the worlds most notorious aging media-mogul lotharios, was indirectly behind the publication of the photos. He owns both French magazine Closer and the Italian magazine Chi which went on to publish even more topless photos of Kate.

However, the Italian press is now wondering if Berlusconi's role in the scandal may be a little more direct than previously thought.

Italian newspaper La Repubblica has argued that Berlusconi's daughter, Marina, who runs her father's Mondadori publishing group, may have chosen to publish the article to get revenge on the British press, who had long been critical of her father, and the Queen herself after she was filmed admonishing Berlusconi several years ago.
