A DANISH CELEBRITY MAGAZINE says it plans to publish topless pictures of the Duchess of Cambridge in a 16-page spread on Thursday, it said on its website today.

Se og Hoer magazine said it had obtained the exclusive Danish rights to publish “the pictures of the topless Duchess of Cambridge, Kate”.

“Tomorrow we will publish a 16-page spread full of piquant photos of England’s future queen,” it said.

The pictures, whose appearance in other publications have infuriated Britain’s royal family, will only be available in the weekly’s print version available on newsstands on Thursday, and not online.

“Our readers love to follow the lives of the royals and they want scoops,” Se og Hoer chief editor Kim Henningsen said on the website.

“I am therefore incredibly proud that we have obtained the rights to provide the topless pictures of Britain’s future queen — which the whole world is talking about but very few have actually seen.”

The paparazzi pictures, showing Kate sunbathing topless in the south of France several weeks ago, have already been widely circulated on the Internet after they were published by French magazine Closer as well as Ireland’s Daily Star and Italy’s Chi magazine.

The editor of the Irish title remains suspended amid an investigation into the decision to publish the pictures.
