I know first hand from carrying the photos of the Duchess of Cambridge on this site, the extraordinary interest that these pictures have generated around the world. However, the Royal Family caught on camera either naked or showing their ‘bits’ is actually nothing new.
Whether it be deliberate or not, the Royal family have never been particularly bothered about being photographed naked, semi naked or in compromising positions. Course, they act outraged but there can still be little excuse for being caught, whatever the situation might be. I mean, its not as if these people are not aware of the lengths that the Paparazzi will go too in order to get that all important snap.
The photos in this article are mainly of the British Royal Family. However, for no other reason than exploitation I have included some titillating snaps of their foreign cousins.
However, the earliest photo’s of a member of the British Royal Family that I know about are those of the Queen’s sister, Princess Margaret, who was photographed sunbathing topless on the Island of Mustique in the mid 1970′s. This is around the time that Maggie was having an affair with bad boy actor/gangster, John Bindon. Unfortunately, search as I may, I haven’t been able to find any of these photos. Fear not though, there is a wide selection of various other members of royalty ‘showing off’ their Royal assets, coming right up.
I suppose as good a place as any to start is with the man who has just succeeded in getting an injunction to stop ‘Closer’ magazine from printing any more topless photo’s of his wife. I am of course referring to Prince William. Willie’s willy was snapped by the paparazzi in November 2008 after being caught short at a Polo match. What his Nan made of it is not a matter of public record. However, it gives a whole new meaning to the term the ‘Royal Wee’.
There are other photos of William with his knob out on the net. However, I cannot vouch for there authenticity. Therefore, I will leave it up to you to decide if they are snaps of the 2nd in line to the throne, or not.
Unlike the above photos of Willie. there can be no doubting the authenticity of the photos showing his Father, Prince Charles, caught while getting dressed by those pesky Paparazzi fellows.
During the 1990′s Princess Diana, having split from Charles was always getting herself into bother and often ended up in the papers having been photographed either topless, bottomless or both, as well as in her bikini.
